Can't beat it man.

I have three mapex kits and love them all. In fact i just bought the Pro M kit similar to yours except with the 20x22 kick drum. Love it. Mapex just make a quality product that looks and sound great -

Like i said - can't beat it man. Beautiful kit Benson!

the EC2's sound nice, they compliment the warm sounds of the maple shells niceley. although i am not completely confident when it comes to tuning drums so they could probably sound nicer.

thanks for all your + comments. 'tis good to hear.
