They really are rather beatiful. Not sure there'll fit in with many kits tho, but we shall see.

What's funny is that I made a thread basically about a new dream of mine. That dream is to own an ENTIRE drumset that looks like the Valkyrie snare.

It sounds amazing, looks amazing, and if I had 600 dollars sitting around I would definately be drooling over it right now!

The warlord series is unbelievable, I love the damn things, I was given the pleasure of playing the spartan and was very impressed. Now if I could get a few hundred bucks together before my next tour hahaha.
