Las opiniones de los clientes, incluidas las calificaciones por estrellas de los productos, son útiles para que otros usuarios obtengan más información acerca del producto y decidan si es el adecuado para ellos.
Para calcular la calificación global por estrellas y el desglose porcentual por estrellas, no utilizamos un promedio simple. En cambio, nuestro sistema considera aspectos como la fecha de la reseña y si el autor compró el artículo en Amazon. También se analizaron las reseñas para verificar la fiabilidad.
So this is a MINI kit, not a Beginner's kit. The crossbar which holds the two toms and the crash and ride are only 24 inches off the ground at their highest setting. That's super super short, even for most kids. I didn't take a star off for that, although there's nowhere that shows how tall this thing is in the description. But when I ordered a "Kids kit" I assumed it would be smaller, just not this tiny.
I was originally going to purchase the Alesis Drums Nitro Mesh Kit for a $100 more, and then saw this and thought "hey, beginner's kit for a beginner." WRONG. Spend the extra money and get a full size kit unless your kid is like 7 or 8 years old.
The melodics website frustrating. I'm a geek and couldn't figure out why it would not let me register the product. I tried to register the serial # so I could access the drum lessons, but it was impossible to do so. I left feedback and we'll see if they can tell me what i'm doing wrong. I took one star off for that. It should be simple to register a product, but you should have to in order to access free drum lessons...IMHO
The base drum pedal is SUPER sensitive, which makes it a little hard to keep just one beat when you want one beat. It has a habit of double beats and random beats if you even touch it. It's probably because it's on a carpet so I'll most likely put down something hard for it to sit on instead.
There is music you can play along to on the controller, but that music isn't for beginners at all; you really have to learn the basics before you can use any of the music on the controller.
I get that this is a beginner's kit, and a "kids" kit, but I was surprised at how SMALL (as in low to the floor) it is. I'm either going to replace the legs with longer pvc or pipe to raise it up or I'm going to return it and get the Alesis Drums Nitro Mesh Kit instead for the extra $100.
The mesh heads are super, it comes with a key to adjust the head tension which is awesome. The controller is very simple and easy to use. It took me less than 10 minutes to set up the kit and start playing. It literally comes with EVERYTHING you need to start playing the drum kit. The pre-set drum kits you can choose from are very cool. There is no delay at all when hitting any surface.
CONS This is a MINI kit. It's REALLY low to the floor. Also the mesh heads are 6 inches, so MINI. Can't adjust the cymbal heights, they are at the height they're at which is about 10"-12" inches above crossbeam. Floor pedals are very sensitive and no way (that I found ) to adjust the sensitivity (will research this). Trying to register product online was impossible.
Overall, as I mentioned, unless your kid is under 4 feet tall or so, this is too small for them. Spend the extra $100 and get the Alesis Drums Nitro Mesh Kit instead.
