The drums sound bigger than they look. The portability factor is great for gigs. I also like the look. There is not much to improve on, but two things come to mind. The small Velcro pad in the bass drum has inferior adhesive, which has come unglued almost immediately. So I have to remove a bass drum head after just getting the set all put together and tuned. The last thing that I consider a design flaw are the spurs. After adjusting to a height for playing, they are too long to fold up and fit back in the carrying bag. Rather than readjust the height each time I choose to remove the spurs for transport, but this creates an extra step in set up and tear down which is disappointing. A different spur design o a slightly deeper bag ( that could also carry a throne top in with the drum ) would resolve this. But overall I'm still happy with the sound.
