Consider it payback for that police car that your son got from his uncle.

Nothing "beats" the gift of noise!

I'm a percussionist and hope I get a new snare for Christmas...

Looks like the bad reviews are more aimed at the shipper than the drums themselves.

regardless, i just ordered these but i had to call them to get them to manually place the order for the free shipping to be applied. honestly it looks like they just hope people will just pay the shipping.

@kbsig106: One of my sidelines is making handmade wooden drums. One of them is called a Cajon, which is a latin box drum.

We decided we wanted something like that for a regular drum kit that we use so my buddy and I invented what we call 'The Octajon' which is a wooden snare-based Cajon that fits into a regular snare drum stand and plays like a regular snare. Woo Woo!

I've been happy in the past with ddrum...especially considering the low price of many of their kit and this is a fantastic price for a starter kit.

@bingo969:: To clarify, you have a cajon, that fits INTO the snare? Need a pic.... Interesting.

@buchan44: No, what you see there in that picture is it. All the design elements of a Cajon (Reinforced box with thin front and back and a snare system installed inside resting against the playing surface).

Everything that a Cajon is, but made smaller to fit into a snare drum stand and designed to be played flat instead of sitting on top of it :)

Seems like the bad reviews are rarely about the set, but about incomplete shipments. My buddy Lucky Chucky plays this brand and he's touring the country with a major act- so I'd take his word for it that the company maks some good stuff and stands behind it if something goes wrong.
IF you get the complete kit at this price, looks like a great deal to me.
