Arbiter Flats lite

“The cymbals are long lasting, but of a poor sound...”

Good Points
Easy to set up, move around and take apart

Bad Points
Weak hardware, poor tuning system, quite bad sound quality

General Comments
The cymbals are long lasting, but of a poor sound quality. The bass drum is this drum kit's weak point, it doesn't have the sound characteristics of a normal 5 piece drum kit. The nuts and bolts on this kit are terrible, I found myself having to buy extras on more than one occasion, due to the threads being wore down. The hi-hat after 6m onths gave in and the lift mechanism stopped working.

This kit however, is fine for occasional use, the overall sound quality isn't bad and it is great for moving around the house.

I would recommend this kit to anybody wanting to take up drums, to get a feel of the general sound and characteristics of a normal acoustic drum kit.

I agree with this review because... as a drummer who has had experience with this kit over the past 6 years i feel all was fair comments, the bass drum is the weak point, and the cymbals arn' t manufactured for heavy use.
<br/>
<br/>but i disagree with the hihat comment. im still using mine as a second hat and its lasted 6 years travelling across great Britain many a time...
