Where is the drum key?I
It depends on which set you have...please check out the Parts List Page or your printed instructions
Why are there wrinkles on the drum heads?
These will smooth out over time after they are tight on the drum
What are the cymbals made of?
For the Battle series all drum sets in this price range use plated steel cymbals.The cost of brass is too high and therefore the manufacturers opt to using steel cymbals plated to look like brass. They are actually stronger cymbals than the more expensive brass cymbals
How to avoid breaking cymbals?
The reality is that more expensive cymbals break more easily than the plated steel cymbals that come with these sets. Any cymbal, if played too hard or with the wrong technique will break or bend sooner than later. It is best to not hit any cymbal of any kind too hard to avoid breakage and undue bending. As you can imagine, anything hit with a stick over a long period of time the wrong way will show signs of abuse
