The high hat is the burden of my existence and I suffer great haplessness because of these horribly constructed pieces of metal. On a scale of 1-10 (10 corresponding to the best quality) the number for this high hat is so far into the negative that you would need to travel into another quantum reality to even catch a distant glimpse of it. The person who constructed this horrendous byproduct of human evolution should be burned at the stake for their disgrace against mankind. This high hat redefines poor judgement and careless construction. It may be a business move, or some really poorly made joke for the sake of purposely making people angry that they wasted their money on such useless pieces of metal, but one thing is for sure. Bite. This. Onions.

    Comments about PDP by DW Encore 5-Piece Drum Kit with Hardware and Cymbals:

    This is our very favorite for the beginner student. We own a couple for the children in our household and the adult beginning player. I recommend this highly. Toss the sticks that come with this in the garbage and buy a set of high quality ones.

      Comments about PDP by DW Encore 5-Piece Drum Kit with Hardware and Cymbals:

      Nice kit. Everything was packaged well and tight. The finish is much nicer than it looks on line. We got the silver sparkle and when we removed it from the package was very clean and bright. The skins are okay for a beginner but could use a quick upgrade. Only down fall is the cymbal is very average with not much of a crash. Would have nice to include ride cymbal or second crash for the lack of quality. Over all very satisfied and great value. I would recommend purchase to a friend.

      Comments about PDP by DW Encore 5-Piece Drum Kit with Hardware and Cymbals:

      Not going to get a better system like this for the money. Lots of stuff in the box that provides a complete set of four drums, 2 cymbal setups, foot pedals, and support hardware. Give yourself 45 min to get it going. Be careful not to force anything--it all fits together properly, but some people can't put one wooden block on top of another. You know that story (or person)!

      2 months in and nothing broken

      Comments about PDP by DW Encore 5-Piece Drum Kit with Hardware and Cymbals:

      Had this kit about 2 months now. Nothing broken and that's with daily play from adults and kids. The cymbals don't sound at all like real bronze but you wouldn't expect them too. Remember this kit does not have a throne, you'll need to grab that seperately. The hi hat pedal feels pretty chincy but again you should be expecting that. Watch some tutorials on setting up a kit. Thonoje did my come with any directions :)

      Comments about PDP by DW Encore 5-Piece Drum Kit with Hardware and Cymbals:

      Drum set showed up 2 days sooner than expected. There was no instructions for putting it together but boxes were labeled with what parts they had. And if you've put one together before there all close to the same. Still was an easy setup. Seems very sturdy and has a good sound. I bought this for my 12 year old son and he loves it.
