what's up all, a friend of mine went to guitar center a couple of days ago and picked up a Yamaha kit, I'm not sure the model but he paid like $500. something for it. anyway, I came down to check it out and was like nice kit. the finish was a dark cherry lacquer which looked sweet, and then I noticed the lugs on the kit. for those of you that don't know or haven't saw them yet, the lugs were made of plastic. at first I was thinking "ahh that's cool" and then I proceeded to tune up the snare drum & as I'm tuning up the snare, one of them cheap ass lugs broke. then my friend told me it's cool and said it came with extra lugs, lol. long story short I tried 4 of them and broke every one and then told him to return this piece of crap. btw my friend don't play drums so he don't know much so I couldn't blame him, he just wanted a kit and the ass at guitar center told him that this kit was the best bang for the buck. I just couldn't understand Yamaha's thinking behind this kit, it has to be one of the worse idea's I ever saw on a set. anyone agree or think this a hot new option, lol.
