Wow, they really are quite poor. Entry level, beginner or child drums at most. All the drum brands have that entry/beginner level range.
My advice is to stay away from them, best off finding second hand decent drums. Will be light years better than that garbage.

Did you tried and test them?

I did, more then once. And these are great conga's, especially for the starter/intermediate (and even pro who gigs regularly and doesn't want to take out his precious tubs, yet wants a great sound and feel)

Don't bash something you haven't tried or tested yet. You might steer people away from something that can work for them.

A little googling and its hard to find any reviews online from someone other than musiquman who has actually played them. Don't seem to be many NA companies carrying them either.

But thanks for the review however.

Cheers

Thats because they really are terrible drums. Any one who begs to differ clearly don't know shit. Novice entry level drums, barely good enough for children.

Back in 1972 while I was at home on a spring break, a local group that I often jammed with got a gig at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY and the LP's that I usually played were 200 miles away. What to do as the group needed me, I knew the rhythms and the numbers, so I took a large size Planter's peanut can, tore the label off, turned it upside down and instant bongo.

I did the whole 2 hour set, and the crowd enjoyed it.

Taught me a life lesson about using whatever you got. The clothes don't make the man, the man makes the clothes. When I don't have a drum I play on my thighs, the table, chair, wall, book, etc. Whatever I have is by grace.
