Nice choice, Im a Saturn owner myself couldnt be prouder.
The walnut BP has a better finish now but I like the old Deep Forest version (thinner shell)
I own a 14x6.5. Either way Walnut makes an amazing earthy sound loud, and warm is amazing musically IMO

Really nice looking drums for sure, I like your cymbal setup as well. You didnt like the XS20 hats? I'm not saying there is anything wrong with your hats, just seems you bought everything else XS20.

Sounds crazy, but i reckon he might have bought the XS20 set originally and then when he got a bit of money together decided to upgrade to a better model of hihat, the AAXs.

The head on the left is signed by some of the guys at a local radio station (Kerrang 105.2). The cymbal is signed by Aaron from Billy Talent and Darrin from Goldfinger, and the head on the right is signed by Chad Smith.

eddiehimself, you're right, I did buy the Xs20 pack but decided to upgrade to the AAX's and sold the Xs20's on eBay.

you live near kerrang? That's kinda cool. See you're from brum, well i'm from hull. Funny that, isn't it? Nice signings though, pretty good. Is that one of the cymbals you bought originally or did you win it or something in a competition by kerrang!?

beautiful nice xs20s too i have em and they are really good for the price but i might go for an aax or aa crash instead of buying an 18 inch xs20 crash to go with my 16 inch xs20
