Re: Is a mapex a good set?

Re: Which pro set gives most bang for the buck?

I did the research about 3 years ago and got myself a mapex Saturn. Great kit. Lot of compliments. My 16" Tom is kinda hard to tune. But everything else is awesome.

Re: Curse of the warm-up band(venting/rant).

Re: Should I work on heel up or heel down?

depends on what you play most. If you have more jazz, combo, world music gigs I would do heal down. If you have more rock, funk, metal gigs, I would do heal up.
