Advantages Well made, low priced
Disadvantages None apart from age.
What I normally tell people is to look out for a Hohner lite set, as in general they are pretty good and quite easy to pick up cheaply as they are now relatively old, but the age is of no consequence.
I'm often asked where a good cheap set of drums can be acquired, usually with the same response, Dunno!
Unlike most cheap kits the Lite LE ain't half bad, I've actually go a set myself.
The standard set consists of 5 drums. Bass - Floor Tom - Twin Toms - Snare. Any cymbals or other add-ons are just that, Separate add-ons. But that don't kill the kit as most second hand sets come with hi-hats and a splash or two, often with no extra cost so the kit becomes an even better bargain.
The sound quality is another good point with this kit, they tune well and give a good strong sound that equals most makes, and they don't gouge your floor. In place of the usual spikes it has decent rubber feet that grip well even for a heavy footed drummer like me.
Overall they're a great starter kit that can be picked up around the £150 - £200 mark, and often you can get a PX deal if they are from a shop, so even cheaper.
