I was never big on Yamaha, mainly because I never owned or played any Yamaha kits. I think they've just gotten a new repeat customer, though. If they have this kind of quality on their mid-level kits, I can't imagine what playing a Phoenix would be like!
I also don't really like the idea of gluing plies together, but these actually sound pretty good for what they are. I was pleasantly surprised
