I'm not usually a fan of Pearl drums (do like some of the hardware though) but your set looks beautiful. Very clean & sharp. Liking the look of those kick drum claws too. As for the FF, well, I always have been a fan. It's still the snare bargain of the year award from me. They might lack a touch of character, but for volume, sensitivity (16" wire model especially), & build quality, they're difficult to beat at any price. Great gigging "go to" snare. Liking that kit finish. The fact that it's a lacquer elevates it way beyond a wrap for me. Cool!
