A great graduation kit or upgrade for the early to early to intermediate drummer, the ddrum Journeyman Series Rambler offers custom features and touring quality, at an entry-level price! Its 22" x 18" bass drum, standard in all configurations, is a street sweeper - and is complemented by the authoritative crack of a 13" x 7" snare. The 100% basswood shells offer enhanced projection and bright tone, similar to maple.
Includes a full suite of hardware including two cymbal stands, a snare stand, hi-hat stand and kick pedal. A tom arm and accessory clamp will ensure maximum sustain for the mounted tom and kick drum.

I recently purchases this kit to get back into drumming. I'm not a pro drummer or anything, and drumming is more or less just a hobby, but nonetheless I was looking for a set that is one step above beginner so I can grow on it. This is just the set I was looking for. Sure, it's not a DW set, but DDrum really did a great job. The hardware is sturdy and the drums were easy enough to set up and tune to where I wanted them, all done in less than 3 hours. The included lugs and cymbal / tom clamps do their respected jobs perfectly. And the best part - the drums sound really good. I'm currently just using the stock heads, but with some Evans or Remo heads, these will sound even better. My favorite thing about the kit is probably the kick pedal and the virgin bass - both outstanding quality for an intermediate set. The drums look really nice too (I have the orange kit). Sure on a few drums you can see the seam where it was wrapped, but it's a $500 set not a $2000 one, so this is to be expected. You can't expect perfection in the music world without having the investment into it. But for me, this set is perfection. It gets the job done and sounds just as I want it to - and with a lot of tuning and good heads, you can really get it to sound even better. I have no doubts this thing will last me many many years and will keep me happy every second of these years. Thank you DDrum, you've done well. The other reviews seem to reflect issues with damage - probably which occurred in shipping from Guitar Center. My boxes were beat up - but I inspected every inch of this thing - spotless. If you are a beginner drum and enjoy the rambler style like I do - get this set. You will just need to pick up some cymbals and you're good to go! Excellent kit.
I ordered the Ddrum Journeyman Rambler online and had to return it due to a cracked bass drum shell. But I might have returned the kit anyway. I ordered the kit because I really like the fact that it has a virgin kick with a single rack tom and dual floor toms. I even liked the 13" snare. Plus the included cymbal stands save a lot of money compared to a shell pack. Unfortunately, the kit is lower quality than I expected. My first complaint is that the bass drum hoops are made out of a thin piece of folded and painted steel with a plastic strip down the middle. Even on an entry level kit, I expect wood bass drum hoops. And I expected this to be a mid-level kit. My second complaint is that the lugs on all the drums are made out of molded plastic with small steel inserts to accept the tension rods. Again, I would expect metal lugs on even a bargain kit. Generally, the hardware on the kit looked bad. The two cymbal stands seem decent, but not surprisingly the kick pedal and high hat pedal looked pretty weak. The bass drum "claws" (which hold the hoops to drum) felt very cheap and the shell wraps (my kit was midnight black) looked very sloppy. All the wraps had very obvious seams. As far as I can tell, the kit is only available online ... and I think that is intentional. The kit looks great in its pictures online, but it might turn people off in person. The kit probably sounds pretty good and it might look good on stage, but it probably isn't a kit that you will keep for years and years. I'm a guitar player and I bought the kit to use in my home studio. I will probably never play drums on stage, so I didn't need a kit that is pretty or even road worthy. I might have kept the kit if the shell wasn't cracked, but I'm glad I didn't have to make that decision. I know I would be disappointed with it.
