Hello all. Long time no see!

Here is what I have been contemplating for a purchase this winter. I was thinking of selling my Rogers kit and buying something like this:

Can anyone just give me some reviews on these drums. Anything will be an upgrade from what I have. I am looking for something new, but my budget is about 1000! These drums dont have hardware? Not sure....

Thanks everyone, chat later...

X7 is not a bad kit, but I guess it's rather pricey. Check out Gretsch catalina maple, or maybe Mapex Pro M (if there's still some around). I recommend finding second hand kits too.

Hahaha. My Rogers kit is 1980 exactly. My dad bought it earleier in the year, just before I was born.

PDP pricy? Hmmm.... Ill look into the Catalina. Sounds sexy. :)

Ps, musicians friend is giving away 2 gifts with the spcific set I want. I spoke with someone there- they are giving away an electronic kit plus another small percussive electronic pad set! 1400 bucks worth of stuff to go with your new accoustic kit. Crazy!

There is also this other one I am looking at which is similiar to the PDP;

just make sure they are the ones with the maple(or birch, idk) shells. When they first came out with the x7 they used basswood, and then switched about 6 months later.
