DW DDLG2215 good for beginner?

I bought a Ludwig Epic Element birch 4 piece shell pack (22 BD) new for $400 and added Yamaha Stage Custom birch pieces to make a 6 piece set. I've been slowly adding used K cymbals to get the exact sound I'm after.

Honestly I think the Stage Custom is one of the best deals out there plus the sell individual matching toms and BD so you can literally make your own kit! My next project is to make a bop kit with SC pieces :)


Web page says hardware is not included.
You could order it with or with out hardware. At the last second though changed my mind and ordered the dw design series so have that on the way. Wife said they sounded so much better compared to the other ones and convinced me to get what I really wanted.
