I've had this kit for about 2 years now and it's great, I stuffed an old winter jacket in the kick to make it super punchy and got the floor tom and snare completely dialed in after some trial and error. I find moon gels and an evans 'e-ring' help a lot on the snare. The rack tom is completely useless and I've never been able to get it to actually sound good but for this price, who needs a rack tom? I'll probably consider buying a C&C Maple kit in a couple of years but for now this kit does everything I want it to.

I play in a six member band, so space is tight on stage. I needed something smaller with good sound. This is the kit ! I love it ! Talk to Mike Gnandt if you are in the Lethbridge Ab. store !
