It would've been interesting if Neil came out with another kit that had the black finish with the big red stripe around the middle of the shells that he mentioned a little bit in the video.
I'm envious. I've added two serious contenders to my dream kit list (Yamaha and Sonor), courtesy of direction and advice from two Drummerworld members, however, if all still points in the direction of a DW kit when all the dust settles, I'm going to seriously consider boarding a flight and spending a day at the Oxnard Factory.
Rash of letters after an Architects name? Alphabet Soup, don't drown in it...
