if i ordered from drummaker or drumfactory or where ever
am i gonna get a bunch of crap?

www.drummaker.com and go to the message boards. Go there and ask all the questions you need to buils your kit and see if you want to put in the time and make the commitment on building a new drumset. I would suggest buying a snare shell and building a snare first and see if you like the building process before spending alot of money on buying shells and all the other things that go on a drumset.
