That's quite alright. I'm sure the poplar version is no less in quality or sound, just difference in tone and volume possibly. Yes I have the maple version in white and whether it's the poplar or maple version, a 7 piece set with the quality of these shells, the sound and finish is a steal. I got lucky as they were discontinuing them and bought mine from Guitar Center brand new, delivered to the door for $699+ tax. I actaully really like the lug design more than the Concepts. It gives off an old skool vibe to them, like early 90's drums lol. :)
