Here is my Stage Custom Birch kit that I purchased in October 2011.
Here's another angle of them set up on the riser I built a few weeks ago. (A black skirt is in the works)
And finally a shot of the drums and the drummer in action. Bangin' out that surf beat on the 16" tom.
I go back and forth between the matching Stage Custom snare and the Chad Smith snare. The stage Custom snare has a warmer tone but the Chad Smith is a lot louder.
