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... (read more)

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 more)

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 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... (read more)
