i used to play regularly in a dixieland band that had a MIJ drumset. i think it might have been a Magestic brand. i probably played it 500 times. it didn’t sound too bad. But I swear, on every gig something would break or a screw would strip out or a lug would pull loose. i think i jury rigged just about everything at one time or another. the chrone was lousy too and flaked off in spots. for regular gigging i wouldnt reccomend a cheap drumset. only reason they wanted that set was because it matched their publicity photos. it was like a navy blue marine pearl and matched the uniforms.
