Thank you ! Very fast shiping and very good service.
Nice drumkit for the price. Perfect for practicing in a small space. Kit is responsive and has a built in metronome as well as some tunes for playing along to which help me stay in time. I'm not a beginner, and this kit is definitely more geared toward beginners. However, it is fully functional for drummers of all experience levels. Also, as you can see in the photo, the drumkit can be set up for left handed drummers like myself. My only complaint is the hi hat triggers. If you strike the edge of the hi hat pad while it is closed, it makes a staticky sound. I've learned to strike it directly in the middle, so it isn't really an issue, but it is something to be aware of. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase.
Our son loves it—thanks for a great product and service
My son has been using this, he is an experienced drummer of a few years now. He approves of this highly and we want to share our opinion to help others. The instructions were very straight forward. This set has a good selection of different sounds for each drum. Both crash cymbals can have 2 sounds based on the velocity of the hit. The bass pedal is really too sensitive. However this can be fixed by adjusting the sensitivity which is explained in the instructions. One of our favorite features is being able to plug in a phone to play a song, and plug in headphones as well and to hear the song and the drum set together! Overall it’s a terrific electronic drum kit.
I have been looking for an electric drum kit for a while now and they always seem like they are going to take up too much room or too bulky. I came across this and found the price to be appealing and it overly expensive. Once I received the item which was packaged really well and compact, it was very easy to assemble and hardly took any time at all. The performance I’m getting from this drum kit is unreal and has exceeded my expectations. I’m very impressed with this kit.
I was pleasantly surprised with the electric drum kit.
I have bought a few guitar pedals by Donner and really liked them so I decided to take a chance with the drum kit.
It came in a relatively compact box and was packages very well. The build quality to very high and much better than the electric drum kits I used to play years ago. It has a good range of sounds to play around with and you can get good dynamic sounds from each drum depending how / where you hit it.
I think a few key features have been missed out in other reviews and the listing for the kit. The kit has rim sensors on each drum so you can get sounds from that also, but the best thing is that it has a MIDI output that allows you to connect the kit to a computer where you can use programs like garage band to get more drum sounds and record songs.
Overall I am very happy with this kit for the price point and would recommend it.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the drums for the price range. I went for this one because of the mesh heads and they feel just like an acoustic kit.
There is also the option of tightening or loosening the heads with a drum key, making it easy to replicate the tension of the heads on my acoustic kit.
The overall structure is also very sturdy and very easily adjustable. I was a little worried about how the kick pedal would compare to a real chain pedal but once I'm playing I barely notice a difference.
When played with headphone this is perfect for practicing at night without waking anyone.
The module is pretty good although there isn't a massive range of sounds. This isn't a problem for me as I can plug it into my laptop and use it as a midi controller and use virtual drums in my DAW.
Overall this kit is perfect for my needs.
I got these for my kids birthday and now I want to keep them for myself. I'm no drummer
but these are super fun to play and really nice quality. They sound great and all the toms are really bouncey and feel like the real thing. Just like a real drum kit all you need is a drum key (supplied) and some patience to put it together. It worked straight away, no weird programming or messing around. The brain/interface is very straightforward.
The Demo songs are great to play along with, in my demo Im using #3 which I really enjoyed. There is also a metronome to practice with if you want to keep it less busy. The kit is nice and light and portable but very sturdy; now I just have to convince my kid to let me keep it in my room. The size is good for kids or a tall adult.
Electric drum kids are expected. I think this little kit is good bang for the buck. Definitely useful for my kids who are beginners and they’re already getting they’re beats on!
Easy to assemble and fits perfectly in my apartment. I love I can play and not disturb my neighbors. Just perfect for my development in drumming.
Not ehat I expected but good for my 11yr old son

Got this for my daughter so she would be able to do virtual drum lessons. It has been amazing! She plays the drums all day long and she loves them!

Easy to use. Great product. Does not work with Rock Band 4.
Easy to hook up and move to any room. Also easy to hook up to speaker. Lots of wires though
Easy to set up. Cables are color coated. Heads have great action. It folds up for easy storage. Amp compatible. Head phones and stool come with it. Virtually silent with the head phones. Double kick comparable. You can tweak the sound a little if you connect to software. Sound mod needs work.

We got this for Birthday for my boys and they love it! Great for moms too because kids can plug their headphones into it to give our ears a break! We had an amp to plug it into. You have to have one of those for the sound to work. It has all different sounds as well, not just the basic drum sounds! We bought the suggested stool and my boys haven’t really liked that. I’m sure there are better ones out there! It has become a source of entertainment for my boys teenage friends too when they come hangout in our music room!
Really well packed and the quality is insanely good for the price! It comes with everything needed for a beginner and great for practice. I also bought a Donner keyboard amp that is equally good and powerful. I’m editing a video with a complete review that will be available on YouTube soon.
I was in doubt about this set and the equivalent from Alesis (nitro mesh) and after testing both I would recommend Donner. (Dual sound in the snare, crash and ride. And also mesh bass pad! And yes, there is an extra output in the brain for an extra crash if needed.
I had been wanting one of these for a while and someone goaded me into giving this one a shot. It arrived in a very nice, well protected package. They even included a screw driver and a drum key which is all you need to put it together. The instructions were fairly decent and the diagrams were outstanding. It took me a little over an hour to put it together. Bear in mind that I'm a left handed dyslexic with Adhd. It would probably go a lot faster,but I see everything backwards and I had to set it up for a lefty. Whew. The whole time I kept saying to myself how nice and sturdy the construction was on the pedals and everything. Most of the time in this price range you get a very expensive toy. This was more like the $1000 plus stuff I have played. It took me 3 tries to route all the wires to suit me. Once I got it dialed in for me, and everything Tightened down good, I gave it a test drive. All of the drums have a nice realistic feel to them. They are mesh head and tunable, so I can't imagine anyone not being able to get the correct feel for themselves. Right out of the box they are set up pretty good. There are 15 preset drumsets and 15 different sounds for each drum, cymbal etc. The following are usually only included with much more expensive kits: dual zone snare, dual zones on all crashes and the ride cymbals, and the amazing ability to be able to choke the cymbals. Yea. I played around with it for hours. You can create and save your own custom sets, play along to a ton of backing tracks, or just use the metronome to work on your chops. I have included pictures and a video running quickly through all the preset kits. Keep in mind you have 6 levels of sensitivity to dial in and this is run through a cheap $20 amp. I am really liking this thing. If anything changes I will gladly update. Rock on \mm/
This kit has a ton to offer from the dual zone cymbals to the double mesh pads. The module has a lot of ultimate to customize your sound and get you the ultimate kit you want.
Let's start with all the things I like. The kit was VERY well packaged and fairly easy to setup, taking about an hour to hour and a half. BTW, plug in your cymbals before screwing them on. The stand is strong and sturdy, and everything sounds really good. Honestly, there are some bad video reviews on this. I wish I had a proper amp for it so I could do a video review because many of the videos that I saw for this were from people didn't take the time to learn it. You see, out of the box it has some odd settings. Like the retrigger and sensitivity are a little high, which causes it to make an almost echo for even slight hits and makes it seem really inaccurate. I think the company could have done a better job with defaulting some of these, but if you take the time to set them up it's an AWESOME kit.
There are 15 pre-loaded and you CAN create and save your own kit (1 slot). The many settings make it easy to tweak your sound and playing style the way you like it, and it actually helps me sound like a better player than I am, so heck yeah!
The crash and ride cymbals have a choke feature, but I noticed some delay in the reaction. Honestly, I may not have that setup right, so maybe it can get better, but out of the box it caused a double hit unless I grabbed it REALLY hard. The delay was about 1 second.
Now here's what I'm not so wild about.
The kick drum hits the metal stand and takes away from the quietness of the kit, but this was an easy fix. I wrapped some of the packaging wrap around the bar as you'll see in my pictures and the problem was solved. Voila! The manual was not as informative as I had hoped. OVERALL - Yes, but some additional info about what the names of a few settings means would have helped.
But even with that, the sounds and EXCELLENT PLAYABILITY makes this kit WORTH IT! It's so fun and I didn't want to stop playing every time I sat down to it. I love this kit and I'm hoping you will too.
I'm not a much of a drummer myself; I play guitar and sing in two different bands. But both bands rehearse at my house, and both have pro-quality drummers. I had these drummers put this kit through its paces, and both have it a "thumbs up."
Unlike many electronic kits in this price range, Donner offers MESH heads on its drums; a huge improvement over the decidedly artificial-feeling hard rubber heads. This makes a huge difference to the drummer, for whom "feel" is everything.
I also noticed that the pads appear to offer four levels of velocity sensitivity, further enhancing the "real feel" of the kit. Hit harder, and you get a louder, sharper tone. Very nice.
Speaking of tones, there are 15 customizable kits on offer here; including a very natural-sounding jazz kit as well as several decidedly electronic kits. There should be something to satisfy any drummer in any style.
Naturally, the quality of the amplification has a huge impact on the sounds, as the tone improved dramatically when I switched from my 15w Donner acoustic amplifier to a large Carvin powered speaker with 100 watts of power and an internal crossover for the horn.
There are a few limitations as well, such as the lack of midi out and no individual inputs for each pad, which negates the use of processing. This kit is best used for personal practice or band rehearsals in a stationary place, rather than being moved about and/or "gigged."
Donner includes all the necessary tools to assemble the kit, as well as a generous supply of Velcro straps to secure the cables in a safe and attractive way. They also include an assortment of extra fasteners and hardware of the type that's easily misplaced. Very cool.
All in all, this is a very nice bit of kit, which should work well if used as intended and not pushed beyond it's obvious limitations. I'm very happy to have it in my rehearsal space.
Perfect for beginners.Easy to hook up and move to any room. Also easy to hook up to speaker. Lots of wires though
So, to start off, I am a complete novice at playing drums. I set up a home recording studio and have been using automated drummers in Garageband, and wanted to have an electric drum kit to try adding some touches myself, but also to have for friends to come and record drums over my guitar/bass/vocals.
I was immediately surprised by how heavy duty this all felt, and how customizable. It took a bit to put together, but it wasn't hard. I'm also able to swing the arms in to save space when needed.
The different sound settings are really nice, and sound great going from Audio Out into my Beringer U-phoria to record.
Overall, very happy with this purchase.
I've always wanted a drum set but never had the extra money for a real one. I came across this, took the chance, and have no ragrets or regerts. What else can you pay a lot of money for just to beat on it nonstop? So much fun!
It either didn't come with a manual for the module, or I lost it immediately after putting the thing together and threw it out with the wrapping paper, but I contacted the seller and they sent me a PDF manual via email. Good service.
There are 15 different sound kits and you can easily change each piece to the sound you want if you want to customize your presets. You can also adjust the heads on the snare to get a sharper or rounder sound depending on how much you tighten it all.
This set works just fine through my practice guitar amp, which is a Fender Champion 40watt 12" single speaker.
Assembly wasn't hard but it isn't quick either. You just fit everything together literally like fitting pipes. Also, I found it better to put the module on the lower bar under the toms as they are out of the way and you can still access it easily. All the wires reach without issue.
The drums stay in place and are easy to adjust and you can simply fold the pieces inward and move it around easily or store it out of the way... though mine looks just fine sitting where it's at in my opinion.
I'm a beginner who is learning to play casually via youtube and this is perfect for me. I have written songs on bass and guitar so now I can put some beats and record it to be a one man band. Even more fun times ahead!
This is a perfect set up if you don’t have a lot of space to practice, everything feels very high quality. The sound is spot on, no delays. My 7 year old can’t get enough of it, and neither can I lol
Exactly what I was looking for! Great quality, easy set-up and tons of fun!!!! No need to spend more if you’re just looking to have a great time with headphones or amp!
This purchase was for my eight year old son. He is learning on it, but I have found myself playing them as much as he does.
Easy to assemble, great first drum set for my 12 year old, and they sound GREAT!
Got this for my nephew for Christmas he absolutely loves it! My son who has never played drums also has learnt how to work it. If you read the instructions it is pretty easy to assemble. Definitely worth the money

Gave this to my 13 year old for Christmas, he plays every day and this takes up less space than a full drum set and is much quieter. Very pleased.
I needed a new hobby for winter quarantine and wanted a good quality beginner drum kit. It's great so far - super responsive with nice sound. Don't expect that this is a recording quality kit - but for practice or trying to learn it is excellent. Fun bonus that you can use it as a midi controller if you're interested in making beats.
I bought this set for my Daughter and she loves it. Everyday I hear the tapping but the best part is the actual drumming is in her headphones (sold separately)! Lol. Overall great quality and value. I had it hooked up wrong initially and thought it was a manufacturer issue. The company got back with me quickly and helped me troubleshoot to find my issue. We are satisfied.
I bought this item for my husband for Christmas because he used to play the drums at church. I loved the sound of the unit and the fact that you can wear earphones is a big plus to. My husband is happy with these drums so I’m happy to. Great gift
no extra tools required, easy to assemble once you get the hang of it. I had to move the drums to another room, I unplugged the feet pedals and moved the whole set with ease.
It is great for practice, relatively quiet while playing with headphones. If you're on the floor directly under the drums, you may feel the feet pedals being pressed. You may want to cushion them.
With the weight of the pedals and the sound of the drums, it feels very real to playing the drums. I personally enjoyed playing alongside the backtracks
The sound quality is really not incredible and the cords are JUST long enough to work. it’s perfect for my beginner drummer and it was relatively inexpensive so I’m happy.
I bought this set for my 6 year old (and myself!!). It was pretty easy to assemble and fits in quite well in a corner. You do need an amplifier with it but it is fun to be able to modulate the outcome. It’s a good addition to our music room.
Bought for my hubby for Christmas he plays drums at our church he loves it he uses them daily! Love the fact that he can break them down and take them with him where he goes.
This has everything a beginner drummer needs to get started. We purchased this for our 12 year old son. The best part is, it’s very quiet, with the option to plug in headphones. This mom with a newborn is VERY GRATEFUL!
This is a great drumset. I purchased it as a Christmas present for my daughter. She loves playing with it. I love how quiet it is when she has her headphones plugged in. Its very well built and sturdy. I'm glad I bought this one instead of the children's model. Great quality
My husband hasn’t played drum in years and has really enjoyed this so far. Really can’t beat it it for the price. He hasn’t had any complaints besides the foot pedals. That’s just because they’re electronic and don’t have the counterweight that he’s used to!
Perfect gift for my teenage daughter! Keeps her busy and she’s learning the drums now. I love how she can wear headphones and we don’t have to hear any sound so she can practice in the middle of the night if she wants.
I always thought that I wanted to learn to play the drums but didn't know if I would like it. So I never tried. The price of these units made it an easy choice for me. For the price that you could rent a set of drums for a month, you can buy this electric set and not have to worry about bothering your neighbors. Got the package, put the kit together, and watched a couple of online videos. I love it and wished I would have done this years ago. For getting people interested in playing, this kit is a winner. I love the way it sounds, the way it feels, and how happy it makes me. Well worth the money to me.
My son is enjoying the drums. It is a good instrument. Great quality for the price.
Drum set was not what I would call super easy to assemble. Instructions could have been a little more clear regarding when to tighten down specific pieces during assembly. Sound quality is great, just be aware that you will need an amp if you are playing for anyone besides yourself to hear. Drum set does fold up to leave very small storage space. Great for beginners that want to determine how passionate they are going to be with learning to use a drum set before dropping a huge load on a professional kit.
These drums are terrific. Good value too. They are the perfect size and sound great.
This set is perfect for beginners and parents who have no idea what they’re doing lol I got this for my son for Christmas and it took about 30 mins to put together, super easy to follow instructions, and it works great! I got him some headphones and a mini amp to go with it, so far so good!
We got this for my son's first drum set and it is working great! He loves it and it is easy to use. Sounds awesome!
While it was not easy to put together, it seems quite solid. The choice of sounds are limited to mostly electro-rock, but it does have a few good drum kit sounds to it. For almost the same price as a practice pad set, this is beyond worth its money. It is an awesome value for a practice set for an apartment or beginners or if you need to be quiet... just pull out a pair of headphones and you are golden.
Great for beginners and straightforward to assemble. Also really great customer service.
I bought this for my 9 year old son who wants to learn how to play the drums. It seems like a really great set. There are lots of different sound settings to choose from. Sounds great! It was fairly easy to put together. Came with all the necessary tools and even some extra parts just in case you lose some or need to replace any. I like how all the parts and cords are labeled, making it easy to know what goes where. Very satisfied with this purchase and highly recommend.
Got this for my son for Christmas. He loves it. Sound is solid. Nice to hook it up to mp3/computer/headphones. Easy to put together. Definitely worth the money
My girl loved it. She was here when it got delivered and the look on her face was priceless. We live in an apartment, so an electric set was perfect. But it would have been nice to be able to listen without the headphones sometimes. We'll be getting an amp so that I can listen while she plays. It was definitely a two person job putting it together. Trying to hold one part in place to keep it from moving while connecting another part was the only issue. After we majority of the frame together, it flowed more quickly. Everything is good so far.
Great little starter drum set for my 11 year old. He can jam out and we don't have to deal with headaches or deafness thanks to it being electric and accepts headphones
This is a really nice set, I've been very happy with it. Bought it as a Christmas present for my 14 year old daughter, and she loves it! Assembly was pretty straightforward and easy. Everything is well labeled, so there was no problem matching the components to their proper connections. The variety of drum kits built in is a great feature, and the ability to mix and match each individual drum sound adds a level of customization to your setup. Everything feels high end and well built. The sound quality is impressive, both through headphones and through an amp. This was a great buy!
Hubby and I bought this for our 5 year old who is really advanced at the drums. He had a traditional drum set the the noise was killing me lol. This set is awesome. And he can grow into it!!! My brother who is the lead drummer at our Dads church said he may get a set!!!
Very easy to assemble, only listened to sound quality through head phones and it’s pretty good. It’s a good buy for a beginner or for practice
Honestly, it’s a great value. Would recommend, just make sure you do research on how to use this kit to record and track drums, it requires some hardware but this for just quietly playing along to tunes is awesome, I have a 5 month old and it’s never woken her up
Great set which was easy to assemble and sounds great. Really good price for the quality. Highly recommend.
My 14-year-old son loves this drum set. My son is a beginner. He assembled the set by himself and said that it wasn't complicated and that the quality is great.
