So whats your guys' opinion on these babies cuz i just ordered a 5 piece with extra tom in cherry red and i would love it for some ratings and reviews also some pics of that finish if you have any personal ones!
I don't think the snares are any worse than the other companies but I agree that without a good snare it gets frustrating trying to get a good tune on it. I'm eventually going with a brass shell myself. Thing is you can pay as much for a single snare as you do for a whole kit!nigefan05":3l4si6zk said:I've had my Transparent Sapphire Mapex M Birch since September '06. I love the finish. It's my first drumset and I don't regret getting it, it's worth the $$ - the main complaint I have is with the snare - I'm going to try to do what I can to make it sound the way I want it to before I resort to buying another though. I got Remo Coated Ambassadors on the toms, Evans G1 on the Snare. I want to experiment w/ different types of heads as I go along. When I can afford it I also plan on getting a DW pedal and a cheaper double pedal at some point. Wouldn't mind having an extra floor tom either.
