Basically, I've found someone selling a 6 piece birch drum kit of 250 pounds. The guy says it's made by Drum World, but I've never heard of them, has anyone else.
When I googled them I did find one company in Wales (which is where I am incidentally) but they have no birch kits on sale what-so-ever, so I don't think it is them.
Any help would be must apprciated, as I'm going to look at them tomorrow and I don't want to miss out on a bargain or end up with a load of rubbish.
Cheers

My only suggestion would be simply to play it and if it's well made and sounds good, you'll know.
I don't know what I'm talking about!

You have to be careful. It is quite possible it's not a birch kit at all. Take of all heads and take a look on the grain of the wood and the bearing edges. If you have any doubts, don't buy it
dim my eyes if they should compromise
