no :D
Rhytm is a way to transmit a description of experience
in an emotional and not abstract way.
It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

You're right. Starcast isn't beautiful at all(but does its job perfectly)
dim my eyes if they should compromise

I purchases a set of reference drums, and I like them very much. The shell design gives a much better seperation between the tonal sounds of your toms and the snare drums are INCREDIBLE! I also have a set of masters studio and while I love both of the sets I almost always use the reference kit in the studio. I get a much better sound from them in that environment. Also once you go to your local drum store and price them out the reference kit is only about $500.00 more than the masters kit. Once you look at the overall price tag of the two different series of drums $500.00 is not that big of a difference and the sound quality is well worth the extra money. Also the hardware is a good bit higher end too. Anyway, just my opinion, stop by your local drum shop and play both kits and decide for yourself! I would go to a DRUM SHOP and not the local music store. That way the guys that are helping you out are drummers too and can really give you solid information on the differences between the two series! Happy drumming!

i've already played one, the sound was really bad to me guys, i really didn't like it, it was really not a powerfull sound, so quite. Maybe it was not tuned correctly but i didn't have the time to tune the drums.

A guy who bougth a reference kit told me that he prefered his old MMX
