Amazing value, great for beginners and volume restrictions

08.06.2016
Bought this electric kit as a first kit, having played guitar for years and dabbled on band mates kits I always wanted to learn but never had the space to practice with such a loud instrument. Having saved some money recently I decided I'd invest into an electric kit.

Having tried a few different kits out in my price range I settled on the 450k and I'm glad I did.

The kit is straight forward to put together, the instructions are clear and the whole thing can be put together with a drum key (provided). I had the full kit assembled and was just tweaking the setup to be comfortable for me within an hour. The only gripe I have with the whole rig is that the hi-hat cymbal is too close to the snare and can't be adjusted making stick clashes more likely.

The 450k has rubber pads which are very quiet, comparable to a practice pad. They have a lot of bounce to them, which may not be the most realistic response, particularly from the tom pads but the dynamic range of sound you get from them is really impressive. Being able to do semi-ghost strokes on an electric kit at this price is excellent.

The kick pedal was an absolute must for me and played a big part in winning me over. All the beaterless kick pedals on other kits I have tried just didn't feel right, granted they are significantly quieter. The kick pedal is by far the loudest part of the whole kit, during the day it's fine but if you are surrounded by neighbors like me you will want to refrain from using it at night.

The "brain" on the kit is surprisingly deep, with a lot of learning features and kit customisation along with a metronome. The basic functions are really intuitive so starting playing and messing with different kits is quick and fun but the more in depth functions are going to require some manual reading at first.

The kits the set come with are in my opinion the best you can get in the price range. In the more expensive kits Roland wins every time hands down but on the entry level kits Yamaha's sounds are a bit more polished to my ear.

Although there are some very minor gripes with the kit (the hi hat and a few missing features such as choke able cymbals) I'm extremely happy with it. For the beginner it's perfect, especially with the real kick pedal. Highly recommended!

I've bought this e-drum kit just so I can practice without disturbing anyone after hours\ playing on my acoustic kit. So it is safe to say I wasn't interested in paying a lot of money for it.

The assembly of the product is quite easy, especially used with the user's manual which comes with it. Everything can be tightened/loosened/adjusted with just a drum key (included).

The real kick pedal with a beater feels better than the others where it is just a pedal, making it more realistic.

The integrated sounds which can be customised as you wish are realistic enough, the rubber heads alone however is loud.

Overall build/sound quality of the product is really satisfying, but like I said it is for practicing only, which in my case is great, and thanks to Thomann's bundle deal where you can get a throne, headphones, and a pair of drumsticks you can just assemble and play.
