They produce clean sonic separation and are highly durable to allow full dynamic exploration.

Bass drum pedal and hi-hat stand are critical to any drummer's performance expression, therefore Tama includes a bass drum pedal that has an underside rock plate for stability, along with independent tension and beater-angle adjustments to allow drummers to find their desired bass drum feel. The double-braced hi-hat stand assures stability and includes secure-grip clutch for prolonged and secure performance, along with seat-cup angle adjustment for customized cymbal feel.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
After a 15 year seperation from playing drums, I had the itch to play again. I did not want to spend a ton of money, so this kit caught my eye. Since it came with all the hardware, that made it a simple propasition. Plus its Tama, they are one of the best, and always put out a good product. I changed all the batter heads with some evans hydralics, not really needed, bit I like the 70's drum sound. this kit is worth every penny. zZounds was great to deal with, super fast shipping. My next kit will be bought through them again.
