Cool set, i bet it sounds great, but no offense, but the finish is a little iffy for me. But as long as you like it, its all good. (yeah i know what your thinking, big run-on sentence).

Yeh I have a love hate relationship with it. It looks fantastic under stage lights though.

nice tubs. The finish is kick ass! Being unique is way cool. First Yamaha I have ever really liked the looks of.

Haha thanks mate. They look a lot better in person and fantastic when you have coloured stage lights on them (pink, red and blue reflect beautifully off them).

Sounds good too!

nice kit, i like the colour. i think the cymbal setup looks pretty comfortable but those tom angles dont really work for me.

I like them, I havent mastered demisemiquaver fills yet so I dont know how good they are for speed.

Beautiful kit, although that floor tom is at quite an angle, but i have no room to talk, my mounted toms are angled quite a bit too. But yes, i do like the cymbals and the 2nd snare. Do you like it?

those lugs look great on bass and especially snare, can't say much for them on the toms though.. as for the finish, not something i'd ever buy, but it looks pretty cool

The second snare sounds fantastic. I might record some sounds....but I dont have proper mics so it might sound a bit dodgy.

As for the Alphas they sound good, the crashes not as much, but the slpash, china and hats sounds good so does the ride.
