  • Very easy build, sounds good

    As reviewed by Walter on 6/18/2014

    I have bought 2 of these to build as gifts to friends for when we play acoustics. Instructions could be better, but easy enough to figure out what is meant. First kit was missing a screw on the snare (ironic being I read another reviewer on the web had the same problem). Ha, all the spare screws I had and none that small (trip to local hardware store). Things to watch out for. 1) Make sure you have plenty of clamps before starting. 2) Do not overuse glue or you will be cleaning up forever due to oozing. 3) Make sure you are square when clamping the top, bottom and sides, if not will cause angled adjustments to the front and back panels. Sound is decent and my friends were pleased.

  • Great product that allows you to customize at the build level if you like.

    As reviewed by RAY OCHS on 10/23/2013

    Although I typically take more time than most to build things because I'm a perfectionist, this really didn't take that long and was WELL worth it. Luckily I already had all the tools I needed to get the job done. A few notes though...the instructions are not completely clear on some things and actually give some wrong info. First, don't feel the grooves with glue, it will overflow bad and create a big mess to clean up. Oozing is not your friend. Second, the battens will need to be centered since they are not a snug fit. There will be gaps. This causes the hole pattern on the back of the instructions to be incorrect on some holes. Third, if you have a brad nailer, use it. Last, careful with the feet. The rubber is glued to the plastic piece and can come loose if not careful.
