Your last comment made the most sense, it really is down to if its the SOUND you want from your drums, you shouldn't let appearance lock you out of a purchase when it may just be that thing someone is looking for. Imo saying no to the product of your ideal sound is stupid, at least that is what I am trying to put across.
Valid and respected points. In the end it's all what you dig. I lol'd at your Sonor comment cause if you meant the tribal finish, I too do not find the "tribal" finish that catchy. IMO it doesn't even look tribal. Though the rest are quite nice imo. I really like the cream white and especially the silver sparkle. That set just screams pro to me. Though this one really caught my eye...
EDIT: Although may not be a Pro Lite from the looks of the bass drum reso. Still though I think it's very sharp.
EDIT2: Added a Pro Lite finish....
