I am confused.
They're Element SE (Special Edition, I suspect) and the Citrus Mod & Mod Orange kits a few years ago were also Cherry & Gumwood. I have a really nice cherry/gumwood prototype snare from the Element SE "shop". But there are Elements that are birch, called Element Birch. Regular Elements are, um..,. select hardwood (your guess is as good as mine!)
