Who's talking about China ?? I can't make a judgement call on those..although I would not doubt them for a minute. but my HiLIte was a pretty cool kit, but got it's asss handed to it very easily by my Japan Artstar Custom, quality wise... Everything about it.
Don't get me wrong.. I love Sonor to death.. but as far as quality,.. I would hand the LASTING edge and tolerences of metal pieces. etc.. to Tama, easy.
