Re: Closest wood to beech?

Are you asking because the SQ2 are very expensive?

I don't know, if you dig the sound of beech you should go for beech. Maybe try to find a used kit, Yamaha and Sonor (of course).

Plus you...

Re: Holy Grail of Drum Kits?

Mine would be probably a Le Soprano kit. Feature and construction wise they are very unique drums imo.

Re: Unix vintage style

Re: New Unix snares

Beautiful snares! omg!

Re: Sakae Brings Back the "Recording Custom"

Seen some Sakae sets irl and I have to say the hardware looks very stable and heavy. The lugs are made of extra thick metal (which I am not a fan of, I prefer lightweight lugs)

I like them because...

Re: Best maple kit on the market.
