While this will never be my dream kit, it definitely will keep me happy along the way.

Very nice! We even have a lot of the same stands and I also have an Acro. That Sonor kit might not be expensive but I would put the 18" bass drum on that kit against any of the expensive or vintage ones any day of the week. I gave my bop kit to my sound guy in Germany.
