This mini Drum-set with thomann.de
on the arrival came a box, The box is 2FT, 5" Hight, 1FT, 7" on all four sides.
The Drum-set was neat & tightly packed.
The drum-set & one gets a drum-key with the buy. though for those who never set-up Drum-sets, it will seem tricky. if its one's first time, one can figure this out on assembly.
SKINNING & TUNING
The set took the average time, but tunes lovely lug-skrews are not at all stiff to the hand while turning & tuning the set.
It sure sounds like a "Pearl" Drum-set.
Is crispy & Sharp, even though the snare is 13" & 5.5" one can please in most band scenarios, as a pop artist covers or originals.
This snare is going to work.
Cross-sticking the snare is high pitched (13" Snare). & what come to my mind is Reggae, and the snare pulls it of quite well.
Snare Strainer (OFF), as i mentioned it carries well anyway, as on older Metal player in a recording scenario the snare strainer off is prevalent to the mics. Think of a Band like "Tool".....
with some pearl drum-sets, the sound is slightly hollow/much reverb.
The 10" can be nicely tuned higher or lower to suit the style of music.
The Floor (13") might reach a drop-D but suits the usual low E or higher.
Is a miniature powerhoue with a lovely natural reverb that emanates & carries well.
Something with this Drum-set says it works well for Jazz Music, & i am a Jazz Fan. This Drum-set will be Suited for this kind of playing too, as well as ones pop music scene.
Overall. i rate four out of five (Drum Riser) could be made from a different material to give more strength or change the Design.
Sound, well it is small & punchy But will need mics at bigger venues and that hollow sound limits some musical capabilities as it would not be called for in a lot of cases. but, if you buy this Pearl Drum-set it is a typical Pearl sounding set.
Quality, is reasonable for the price.
For starting out (Early Players). this Little Drum-Set will take all your beatings & frustrations while learning & also offers pro players something for smaller gigs..
