Your general opinion of this product.
Ok so I'm not a musician. I don't know anything about drums & I haven't shopped around much to be able to compare drum sets. I have two young kids I thought would enjoy drumming. The local music studio suggested I start with a practice pad. Boring! The kids and I wanted more. Then I saw this drum set for only $299. I knew the kids would like the lights. I liked that it is compact, uses headphones, and has a built in tutor. I just got it today so I can't say much for long term dependability, but It seems to be well made. Set-up was super easy. Within half an hour of receiving the box from USPS we were playing. The kids loved it. I bought it primarily for my 4 year old son, but I think my 5 yr.old daughter likes it even more. I've never had a desire to drum before, but even I'm enjoying it. Lots of fun. From what I've seen so far I can recommend this set for a beginner. I'm guessing someone more experienced would want more, unless they would want this one for it's size and portability.
