I have this kit set up in my practice room and they are absolutely fine for rehearsing in a small space. Let's face it, they were never going to have the depth in sound that a regular kit would but they are not bad either. The kick drum is probably the weakest part of the kit but the snare sounds great especially when the skins are replaced for better quality ones. Personally I think the blue plastic makes it look a but like a toy but I sprayed the blue parts black and fixed that. The hardware is great quality too for the price. It's got me out of a few situations where either the stage is too small for a regular kit and it folds up easily for easy transportation. Based on appearance it might look a but flimsy but it's steady and strong.
Quality: Everything in the kit was neatly and securely packed. Everything was in perfect condition when my order arrived, except for the floor tom rim. It was broken on a point very close to the tension rod hole. But Thomann replaced the item with a new one without hassle. I didn't even need to send the broken item back, they just sent me a new one. So, many thanks to Thomann team for their awesome support! The plastic parts look a bit flimsy, you should use them carefully. If you don't be gentle on the plastic hardware, if you tighten the rods too much for example, or if you let them lie under sunlight for a long while, they might break. Other than that, rack system, cymbal & hihat stands and the bass drum pedal is decent quality and useful. You won't need to replace them.
Sound: Whole kit sounds surprisingly good. Especially the toms... Bass drum feels a bit shallow as it has no shell obviously; and the snare drum is like a small piccolo snare. But neither of them is a problem especially if you have the chance to mic your drums. A good tuning and some simple eq adjustments can give you surprisingly pleasant results. Of course, expecting a full range rich maple shell sound out of this kit would be ridiculous, no need to mention...
Features: The best thing about this kit is its portability. I suggest you to buy the bundle with the softcases as it makes everything a lot easier. You can carry your drumset in just 2 bags. You don't even need a car any more, you can go to work by bus or almost any other transport :)
