Love but assembly was a bear!


I do not play drums. My daughter had been and is awesome! Finally committed to investing in her "awesomeness" and bought a great drum set! And the set is great and she loves it...however, I know nothing about drums and trying to assemble something with no instructions and poles and bars and tons of stuff I do not even know the name for was not easy or quick. Please consider including instruction videos or at the least instructions. The assumption that people who buy drums know how to put them together is not a good assumption, especially for a beginner type set. Thank you!



I would purchase this item again!


I purchased this kit as a first kit for my son. He LOVES it! I had it delivered to the local Sam Ash store where pick up was very easy and pleasant. Super friendly staff and helpful all the way. Set up was rather simple and now we're ready to rock out!



Great sound, great price


AWESOME drum set. Wish they would add a wooden bass head hoop though. Also, the heads it comes with is trash (cheap and easy to replace though!)



Excellent job Sam Ash!


Sounds amazing. So easy to set up. I'm very happy with the product and experience overall.
