I dont know about you, but I am going to order them A.S.A.P. I just got the word from my drum shop that we can start ordering the "07" master's. And did you know that the "07" masters are offering 4 ply birch shells now, I bet those are killer, anyways what do you guys think of the new master's. The only real defence is now there is a 4 ply birch, new bages, no more satin hardware ( it only comes on masterworks now ) and no more mahogany. by the way, the catalog say the hardware comes in black crome, is that deffent from the black hardware on the older master kits because I thought that the old black hardware was powder coated?
