My second hand drum kit was supplied with a really large bass drum, and was taking up way too much room in our spare room, so I decided to see what Thomann could supply in the way of a smaller bass drum! As per usual, the whole Thomann buying experience was a pleasure! The webstore (as you're aware if you're reading this!) is really good at allowing you to compare whatever products you are considering! I would have gone for a smaller 18" bass drum, but as there was a limited amount of choice from the big name drum manufacturers, I checked out what I could get in a 20" drum! I decided that I would try this model out, to see what it would sound like, knowing that I could always return it to Thomann if I wasn't 100% satisfied! Ordering, Tracking and Delivery was a breeze, as it always is from Thomann! I cannot complain with any delivery I've had from them! Well packed and promptly delivered, I was surprised how nice the gloss black looked! After a few minutes putting it together and tuning, I was playing with it! Sounds really good considering the price, and would probably sound a lot better with better quality heads on it! Hardware is perfectly acceptable and hasn't given me any problems, so far! The only problem I now have, is that the rest of my old kit looks like crap compared to the new glossy black kick drum. Luckily, Thomann supply single drums of various sizes, so I can change my kit and customize it as I go along!
I wanted to obtain budget-priced 18x14 bass drum and then I saw this one. I was sceptic because of price and previous reviews and now I undesratnd way. Shell, front drumhead with mic hole (nice touch) and legs are quite good. Also, metal hoops are ok (with clever black inlays),but batter head is very weak and thin and should be raplaced at once. It is not easy to tune to the drum not only because of batter head, but also because of poorly made screws and tension rods (some of them are curved!). And claw-hooks are so sharp that you can cut yourself. It is big quality control issue and you should keep an eye on it even if it raise the price a little. The sound can be quite good, but with strong muffling and upgraded batter head.
