i was disappointed at first when we got this product because it was smaller than it looks for sure. so make sure you read the dimensions. But my disappointment was short lived cuz once my boyfriend started putting it together and we could hear how it sounded i was impressed. it is really sturdy too. the whole set together sounds awesome except when it comes to the crash cymbal. the high hat is decent, but the crash cymbal sounds like tin. u have a full beat going on and then u hit the cymbal and its like "ding" LOL. my boyfriend just put one of his cymbals on the stand for our son, but the one it came with is seriously unuseable. hope this helps with your decision. Overall, i am happy with my purchase.

First off check the dimensions before you buy this set. The size of the bass drum is definitly a negative against this review. If you are looking for a set for a younger child this would be a perfect fit. It would be ideal for children ages 3-5. The snare sounds good but the cymbals need replacing, unless you are just buying this as a toy for your younger child. This set is a good idea if you are going to test the waters with your kid to see if he is going to take up playing seriously or just bang away for fun.

I'm a guitarist not a drummer but I bought this for my daughter. Its sounds like a professional drum kit just kid size with the exception of the cymbal which because of its small diameter has a bit of a strange sound to it. However, the high hat, toms toms, floor tom, snare and base drum all sound fantastic. She's been play it for 1 1/2 months now since Christmas and we have no complaints. Still looks brand new. It is a wonder first drum kit and fantastic for the money.
We bought this for our 4 year old daughter. I do not play drums, but the quality seems great for the price. It was easy to set up, it took maybe 2 hours. I read some complaints that the drums were wrinkly, but that is how they are to be, but when they are assembled, this goes away. That also allows the drums to be tuned. They look and sound great and seem very durable. She loves playing on this drum set. I would recommend this to anyone who has children interested in learning drums.
I new nothing about drums when I got this. I based my decision on the past reviews and found it was everything they claimed it to be. At first I was at a loss on how to put the thing together but then I downloaded the manual from Ludwig and everything fell into place. I put it together for my daughter and we found a free video lesson online to get us started. She has got the highhat/snare/bass drum beat down pat and she will get her first real lesson shortly. It looks beautiful and plays beautifilly except for the symbol which is what I expected because of its small size. Eventually I will replace the symbol with a bigger one. The rest of it sounds like a regular drum kit. Very happy with my purchase!
I bought this so when my friend comes over, we could jam, without bringing his set over. This thing showed up on my porch the next day!!!I saw one box. I was like, "Oh it must just be the bass drum", but it wasn't. It was the entire set. It's REALLY small, but it sounds good. The Ride(or whatever)cymbal was horribly bent when I got it, but I didn't send it back cause it sounds sorta like a China now. I bought it blemished though, what can you expect?
I bought this set for my 5 year old. Not only is it a perfect size for kids, it also sounds great, looks great, and even my older son and all their friends love it. I did need a drum mat cause it scratches the hard wood. Also if you never put a drum set together all you get is a picture on the internet to go by. We got it together and my kids love it. I went to the store in Mayslanding NJ to buy it and the guys there ordered it and had it shipped to me. They were very helpful and new everything about drums I needed to ask. If you don't know what to buy they are the ones to ask. They steared me away from more money items and gave me just what my son and I needed. Thanks
Set came quickly after ordered. Took awhile to assemble because no directions came with set. Very happy with product and just the right size for our 2 year old grandson.
The set was better than I expected for a scaled down version for my 4 year old grandson. The drums were fine, but the pedals and cymbals need to be upgraded, but is expected for a child size set. The only real problem was it was defecive. The throne had a hole punctured in it and one of the lugs on the mid tom was screwed in crooked. This made it hard to put on the heads and tune it. We had to send the kit back to guitar center for an exchange.
This is a great kit for a kid just starting out. I was surprised at the quality of the drums and the hardware. Comparable to a full-size kit, this Jr. kit is built to scale and my 2 yr old loves it. He has been playing on a kids toy kit and has outgrown it. It even comes with a miniature set of sticks. The sound of the drums is excellent, if you put Remo pinstripe heads on it would sound like a jazz kit. Very impressed with the workmanship and the quality of this Jr. kit. I would recommend getting some Zildjian or Sabian splashes to supplement the cheap bronze cymbals that come with the kit. Other than that, this product is a winner.
We bought this jr. drum set for our daughter and she just cannot seem to stop playing it. It is the perfect size for a tall 3 year old that has a serious ear already for sound. We are happy with it. The only thing that will be replaced are the hi-hat and crash cymbals they sound a little tinnish. But other than that a very well put together drum set.
It's nice and cute but way to small for my son, his 10 years old and short and still looks very small. probably for 4 to 8 year boy will be good. AAAAAhhh! if you don't know nothing about drums think about it, cuz it comes with no instructions at all.
