Good value for a drumset4/10/2014
The drums, heads and hardware are good quality. The bass drum heads have muffling rings which eliminate the need for felt strips or other need for dampening. There are no internal mufflers for the toms or SD, but proper tuning of the toms made it not a big issue. The weakest part of the set is the SD - functional, and sounds acceptable with correct tuning, but a bit ringy. Throw off is cheap but functional- I might replace this.
