the only downside is probably the material of the lugs which is way too fragile for very high tuning of the heads
for the rest finish and hardware are really above the average, robust and long long lasting
My sister actually got this set used one Christmas, but she never played it, so I took it for recording. The only parts of the original kit I have are the three toms and the kick drum. The ride and hat are Sabian cymbals, and I'm not actually sure about the crash cymbal.
