Default peace elevation mahogony shells review

I got this kit for free after signing up for drum lessons, which was a great deal. I still haven't replaced the stock heads or cymbals. I put moon gel on all the toms and snare and put a pillow in the bass. The snare has a great punch and I was impressed by it, the toms are descent but I don't think it's fair to review them without replacing the heads. The hardware is terrible. Every five minutes or so I end up having to re-adjust the bass pedal because it doesn't stay in one place, no matter how much I tighten the clamp the pedal just turns to the right. The hi-hat stand is also bad, I end up adjusting that after around 10 minutes of play. No matter how much I tighten the clutch it still slips. The straight cymbal stand is alright but it slips too. The tom mounts are alright, and so is the snare stand. All in all it is just a beginners set that I got for free.

Congratulations on your journey. It might be worth spending a little money on some hardware.
You can buy some used stuff at a Guitar Center. They inspect used gear before they sell it.
Or check Craigslist.

How can you practice properly if you have to keep adjusting your equipment?
