TOP 100 REVIEWERon 30 January 2013
This was supposed to have been a Christmas present for my two relatives, aged seven and four. However it never made it down their chimney courtesy of Santa for two reasons;

1. As soon as I saw it, I was overcome by a sudden urge to unleash my inner 'Animal'. Fair enough, perched upon the little stool and bashing hell out of the various surfaces I'm sure I do look a little like Alice after she scoffed that cake with 'Eat Me' written on it. Perhaps I can play drums for Gulliver in the pubs and clubs of Lilliput?

2. The girls' father threatened me with various degrees of Actual Bodily Harm if this drum kit so much as crossed his threshold. He was worried about the noise, apparently, which was surprisingly closed-minded of him. It really isn't that cacophonous. Not that I have the faintest idea what I'm doing. I am certainly no Buddy Rich. Buddy Awful, that's a bit more like it.

The kit comes with no instructions, requiring a bit of an odyssey into the depths of the worldwide web. The pedal for the bass drum (is that what it's called? The big one in the middle, that one... you see? I know nothing) required the attentions of a can of oil as the squeak that was coming from it was starting to make me sound like a one-man band. Sort of like the one Bert from Mary Poppins plays, if I can be permitted to appear in three fictional works at the same time. Additionally, the pair of cymbals on their own stand (whatever the technical term for those might be. They have their own pedal anyway) don't seem to work at all. I can press on the pedal but the cymbals don't respond. I put my foot down and they completely ignore me. I was going to do a joke about my ex-wife there but I thought better of it. I daresay the problem is in the construction of the thing and I feel sure that is my fault in some way. I was going to do another joke about her then. I'd better go before I say something I shouldn't.

This drum kit is fantastic, nice clear instructions within box, sounds great, my 12 year old loves it, and it is the perfect size for him, ( he is of average size ) the only thing I would fault is the packaging, I don't think the skins were protected enough inside the box, would recommend.

Good sound, feels robust, easy to assemble (used the YouTube video and got it done in 35min). Delivery was fast. My 7 year old loves it and the 3 year old has not managed to destroy it yet

I ordered this product and it came very quickly, it was very easy to put together, with a great video on the Normans website. It is a very high quality product and as such great value for money, would totally recommend ths.

A christmas present for my six year old son. Great value for money only taken one hour to assemble but no instructions had to watch the online video to assemble it, delivered within two days as well, impressive.
