lol ;) I'm not an expert I just happen to own a Session Elite 20x16" kick drum.
AFAIK - those drums are made of birch/mahoganny. Still, the sound is very good - I don't know about the toms and the snares, but my kick gives a nice round punchy sound. Those drums were made somewhat between 94-97 and vere pro/semi-pro just as today's session series (the only "better" drumes were masters)

I have an SLX catalog in .pdf if you want I can mail it to you (just PM me with your e-mail address).
