“HORIZON II SEES THE NEW DAWN FOR A RANGE THAT PREVIOUSLY OFFERED GREAT STANDARDS OF DRUM CONSTRUCTION AT INCREDIBLE PRICES. NOW WITH KEY UPGRADES, HORIZON II IS BUCKING THE TREND BY EQUIPPING THE ASPIRING OR PRO LEVEL DRUMMER WITH A GIG READY SET THAT KEEPS GOING AND GOING.”

As a Horizon player myself, it is great to see a new affordable model available. With great starter paiste cymbals and new upgraded 531 series hardware it pretty much comes with everything you need to set up and go! The finishes are stunning, with the new eye catching grey steel, my personal favorite.

This kit is great for those players on the go, new drummers who want a more robust kit to start on but most importantly intermediate drummers who are ready to transfer to a upgraded kit. The Horizon II Poplar shell gives the drums rich tone that project through any musical setting and the highly durable wrap finishes will see these kits through years or rigorous practice and gigging!

So, what are the new added features to this drum kit?
