I haven't played a set of those but I'd never buy them. Toms don't have reso heads, hardware doesn't look too good/durable. I think you wouldn't be satisfied with it..
dim my eyes if they should compromise

If I were you, I'd buy one of those Peace sets. They're really good! Mapex Q is also a good entry-level set.


PS - sorry, I don't have a messenger :(

Not really :) Peace is a different drum company. You should look on brands like Pearl, Tama, Mapex, Sonor, Gretsch, Yamaha, Premier. Their entry level kits are way better than kits like DB

look for the ludwig accent set. dont buy pulse. those are good quality set, and if an ebay company lists how many lugs the bass drum has its not a reputable business, imo.

Hmmm, I'd look into used drumsets in that case :) Check ebay for kits that we mentioned. If you have any questions, ask about particular kits here. We'll help you for sure :)

Okay so... i do not believe Ebay would be your best choice but i will say that it does have some amazing deals.

Compare this to the db kit you posted earlier

http://cgi.ebay.com/PDP-DRUMSET-FS-SERI ... dZViewItem

Now i know its in dollars ut this is just an example, but this is 400 dollars which terminates in top pounds to somewhere well in your price range.

Now the db you posted came with two terrible cymbals. Now with the PDP kit you get zildjian planet zs' (which are great begginier cymbals) to make it better its a ride, hats, splash. and crash. Compared to the db's crash and high hats.
Yamaha Drums
HHX's
Paiste Signatures..mmm
