"Better than I expected"

First, kudos to the Customer Service department. I bought a blem set, and it was missing the snare. They sent me a brand new kit at no extra charge. I did have to go through the hassle of repacking and returning the blem kit, but what a deal !
Ok, I needed a small kit for practice. I play on a nice Ludwig, and I have had a great Mapex Pro set also. This little Roadshow can't really compare, but for the price it can't be beat. Yes, you want different heads.I like Evans Hydraulics for the toms. Also, a couple Drumclips here and there help damp out excessive resonance, which helps. The snare is not bad as it comes. Tune it up a little higher than you think and its fine. Maybe a towel or a pillow in the kick and you're good to go. Oh, flip the hihats, put the bottom on top, it really helps. The crash/ride it comes with is ok. I added a splash on a cymbal arm I bought that I mounted on the tom arm and its all I need to practice on. If you changed out the cymbals to real bronze stuff you would have a really nice sounding easy to gig kit that sounds so much better than you would think.
Lots of years on guitar, no so many on drums
