SCs are great kits IMO. The best kit I played was Gretsh Catalina Birch. I really love those babies

The bast set I've ever played, was a DW 7 piece Pearlescent Yellow Kit. it was almost orgasmic.
So many drums, So little time.

I'm a real big fan of DW's. I also got the chance to play a Pearl Reference kit a few months ago and loved it.
