Beautiful kit. Do you have any mp3's of the sounds of this kit? I have yet to hear one and I am curious. Thanks.

Beautiful drums....i'm jealous. Did you get the snare too? I recently got a Starclassic Bubinga (Volcanic Fire) snare (1 of 300 made) that is the nicest sounding and looking snare I've encountered.

I'd love to hear how those shells sound.

On both inquiries.

No snare. Thus, the reason the shop gave it to me at cost. Owner of said shop sold it to one of his celeb drummer friends. I will probably get the TAMA Warlord Bubinga (Masai) as I think they look killer plus it is bubinga too. The Aronoff Brass snare is a bit too much for this kit.

Also, no sound files yet on the kit. I did video myself, but the sound sucks on the video. Thus, I am in the middle of mic'ing it up, and just ported the bd head. This kit will probably stay home unless I am playing in a very controlled environment which is an oxymoron as you all know. For gigs, I use a TAMA SuperStar 7 piece of similar setup.

Have to say one becomes very spoiled with the sound, as it truly is amazing. I just finished playing it and the SuperStar (which is birch) and it is night/day. While the SS is a great kit for the money, the bubinga contains the full spectrum of sound. Very fat/full with lots of attack too.

I plan to use it whenever one of my bands gets serious enough to use a real studio. When that occurs, I will post here.

Thanks for the props. :D

This is the snare I am hoping Santa brings me...
