Thanks, Oak kits sound and look beautiful.. in that order. Show off your wood... drums.

As far as I know, they are only lacquered. You can also see the grain on the inside of the shells, but the lacquer really brings out the grain. I developed a pet peeve for shells being a different color on the inside, ie. a nice veneer on the outside and a bright plain raw wood on the inside, so this kit is satisfying on so many levels.
Also, I didn't realize your kit wasn't stained, that's pretty amazing! Nothing like a dense wood kit.

Thanks man!
