High Quality, Great Sounding Compact Kit

19.01.2016
I ordered this in the Tobacco colour to use as a practice kit after reading so many good reviews about it online. I was unable to get to a large enough music store to try a variety of kits before deciding on one so I opted to go for the DW as their build quality is well respected and I needed a safe bet for a great sounding kit to fit into my small practice space.

Overall I am delighted with it. Highlights are definitely the bass drum and floor tom, both of which are superbly put together and are of excellent quality. The bass drum really packs a punch, despite its small dimensions and the floor tom offers a deep, robust tone. I purchased a pack of the Millennium Sound Control Fusion dampening rings (item 177007) to go on the toms and these are a must-have in my opinion. As with all Millennium branded items I?ve bought from Thomann, these are every bit as good as the much more expensive versions so don?t be afraid to give these a try, especially if you like faster decay on your toms. The high tom is great too and has a fairly wide tuning range.

The only issue I have with this kit is that I feel the sound quality of the snare drum doesn?t quite measure up to the rest of the kit. The tuning range is not as wide as it could be and I soon found myself using one of my other snare drums in its place. That said, I wouldn?t let this put you off as snare sound is such a personal and subjective area that you may really like it!

One thing that isn?t mentioned on the product info and caused me a bit of head scratching to begin with is that most bass drum beaters are too long to strike the centre of the 20? bass drum without the other end knocking & denting the bass drum head when you release your foot. However, this issue was easily fixed after a call to Thomann customer services who advised me to take a couple of inches off the end of the beater with a hacksaw! I followed their advice and now it works just fine.

So, to sum up, if you?re in the market for a compact, very well made and full sounding drum kit, you really should check out the DW Frequent Flyer - you won?t be disappointed.

Super set for all styles

Wolfgang701, 09.03.2015
To reduce the transport volume, I have looked for a compromise between "normal" sets with 20 "or 22" BD (bass drum) and "small" sets with 18 "or 16" BD. With this set all my requirements were fulfilled. The only 12 "deep BD, which has contributed mainly to my purchase decision, also takes up less space in the construction than the normally 16-18" deep BD's (also at 18 "BD).

The processing and finishing are simply top grade (is my first DW!).
The sound characteristics are also very good. After the uniform tensioning of the skins was immediately a round sound of the Tom-Tom and the BD present. To the BD, two small cushioning cushions were supplied, which could be used for front and percussion. I have both been imprisoned and am very satisfied with the result. The sound and the volume of the BD corresponds exactly to my ideas. For the snare 14 "x5" I only complain about the attachment of the carpet with plastic straps. I have exchanged them with the appropriate strings (from my SONOR collection) to adjust the carpet even more sensitively. The snare also has a very nice sound with the supplied fur combination.
The tuning of all drums is therefore almost a child's play.

The price performance ratio is in my opinion not to be exceeded.
I give an absolute purchase recommendation for this set.
