Pacific Drums Concept Maple Drum Shell Kit, 7-Piece

"This beauty sounds like an opera singer performing the most beautiful love song ever written. As far as I'm concerned, this is professional grade."
- Jimmy in Kissimmee, FL

"The kit looks beautiful. I got the transparent walnut, and it's just classic. This kit plays wonderfully and sounds even better. It's a warm quick punch with the proper amount of resonance lingering afterwards."
- Kevin in Cowlesville, NY

"Love it completely! It's amazing how well these drums play. I have expanded so much with this kit."
- David in Horseshoe Bend, AR

Gretsch CM1E826 Catalina Maple Drum Shell Kit

"They look incredible, but more importantly, they sound even better. The tone of the toms was great once I got the top and bottom heads tuned the way I like them, and the bass drum is indescribably good. Such a magnificent, low 'THUMP!' to it with very little effort."
- Wade in Jefferson, GA

"I bought this kit 2 weeks ago. It sounds great, the bass drum is unreal. I just put one small cloth in it and it sounds studio-ready."
- Eric in Red Bank, TN

"WOW! This drum set is awesome, from the detail put into it and the finish, all the way to the sound it puts out, I will be using this set for as long as it will let me."
- Alexis Salazar in The Colony, TX
New, $999.99 or 12 payments of $83.34 | Learn more »

Roland TD-11KS V-Compact Electronic Drum Kit

"This is an excellent beginner/intermediate kit that will last, and produce quality sounds without pissing off your neighbors and/or roommates. You can always get an amplifier for when they aren't home. :)"
- Austin in Lawton, OK

"This thing is great, you can adjust it to about any sound. The USB storage for music or to store your drum sets is also great."
- Jason in Baxter, TN

"I was most impressed with how easy this kit was to assemble, and also the rebound of the rubber pads."
- Matthew in Perrysburg, OH
New, 8 payments of $124.88 | Learn more »

Yamaha DTX-Multi 12-Trigger Electronic Drum Pad

"This unit is full of great sounds covering every music genre. Over 1200 factory sounds. And it's easy to add and tweak your own samples if you need something special."
- Bruce in Slidell, LA

"The pads are responsive and the samples are killer! Having owned it a total of four days, I still have a significant learning curve to really make it sing, but that was expected. I will also say that if I found it easy to program and manipulate, I would have been disappointed."
- Jason in Woodstock, GA
New, $599.99 or 8 payments of $75 | Learn more »

Mapex AR628SFB Armory Studioease Fast Drum Shell Kit, 6-Piece

The sound is fantastic, easy to tune. I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of these drums -- I just can't say enough. I highly recommend."
- Carol in Carmichael, CA

"The floor toms have a beautiful low end to them that floor toms should have! The bass is boomy and punchy! Oh and let's not forget the Tomahawk snare that comes standard! This thing cuts and has a great crack!"
- Brian in Hedgesville, WV

"Big bang for the buck. The hybrid shells sound great. The Mars 600 Series boom stands hold the toms and cymbals well -- those are a good value too. Buy this kit, you will not be sorry."
- John in Florence, OR
New, $899 or 8 payments of $112.38 | Learn more »

KAT kt3 Advanced Electronic Drum Set

"All the features and qualities of a kit costing twice as much. Heads rebound very much like an acoustic kit and are very quiet for indoor use. The white looks terrific."
- Daniel in Cheyenne, WY

"The pads, cymbals and computer module are all sturdy and well designed. This really is a sharp-looking and impressive set."
- Steffan in Indio, CA

"This drum kit is AWESOME to say the least. This set sounds good and has great head response...the custom kit feature is my favorite...I have 8 drum sets I made with the push of a few buttons."
- Al in Vestal, NY
New, $999.99 or 12 payments of $83.34 | Learn more »

Ludwig LC179X Breakbeats Questlove Compact Drum Shell Kit

"When I saw them, I said 'I need to get those drums.' They remind me a lot of the drums Ringo Starr played. The drums sound cool, I love the style -- I'm even thinking of getting the white sparkle set as well."
- Robert in Yakima, WA

"Well it's not the Ringo Ludwig Super Classic kit ... but this is a great little kit in its own way! Nothing wrong here at all, it sounds great for its size...Ludwig did a nice job!"
- Jimi in Hollywood, CA

"The finish is BEAUTIFUL! The sparkles really stand out! I'm looking forward to setup and breakdown tonight!"
- Robert in Atlanta, GA
