“I bought a flats lite kit 5 years ago, and it's still...”

Written on: 29/04/2010 by pteire (1 review written)

I bought a flats lite kit 5 years ago, and it's still going strong! I don't use the original snare, and use a 13x4 Pearl which fits the Flats carry bag no problem. I have two kits, the second being Remo Acousticon which has a BIG sound, but almost invariably I use the flats because of its portability and GREAT small group sound. But I can also use it with a big band too, and along with my priceless Paiste Formula 602 cymbals, (collected over many years), the kit sounds sweet. In any case MOST… Read Full Review

“My Arbiter Flats lite kit has had 5 years thrashing,...”

Written on: 26/01/2009 by profclick (1 review written)

My Arbiter Flats lite kit has had 5 years thrashing, and keeps coming back for more. Can sound excellent, but is very room dependant. Cannot be thrashed - simply chokes up. Better using light sticks and miking up, which it does well [snare drum doesn't rattle when hitting rest of kit - great for recording.]… Read Full Review

“I feel the Arbiter Flats lite snare could be a bit...”

Written on: 17/04/2008 by mark395 (1 review written)

I feel the Arbiter Flats lite snare could be a bit more polyphonal on the range of note able to be played...

there is little difference between the outside edge and smack bang in the centre.

also the mounting system is a little shaky at times.

overall a reasonable kit. I would recommend it...

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

Written on: 07/02/2006 by roanhj (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2008

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...
