I am looking at their Jazz kit.also Saturn,in Cherry or Blue Sparkle.Your kit looks great.Can you give me a clue about your recommended retailer? Are you as pleased with the sound as you had hoped?
Thanks

The sound of this kit is amazing.

first thing I did when I got the kit was Replace the heads. 12&13" toms have Evans G2.

Floor toms Evans Hydraulics.

But these drums deliver such a powerful sound, Never played a kit with such a great tone/sound.

I'm out of Canada,
I Purchased my Kit at Paramount Music In Kelowna British Columbia, and those guys were hands down the best music store I've ever dealt with.

The inner ply of walnut makes these drums sound so good. I just played a green sparkle burst finish Saturn at my local drum shop and it sounded killer. This is a great set of drums. I own an M Birch kit and love it but it does not hold a candle to the sound of these drums. Your kit looks great!!!

Wow, nice. I like the color. I almost bought a 6 piece Saturn on Ebay for $1400 but I felt that it was a bit too pricey.

My Kit was $1900 Canadian, brand new, for the 5 Piece. I added on the 18" tom.

Then came all the cymbals...damn pricey.

The style of drumming I play, I love the 14 inch. Quick, crisp, They deliver the sound I need/want.

I've always played 16" as well, always wondered how Chris adler got such a quick crisp sound from his crashes, till I found out that he uses to 14"s as well.

My Sabian on the Far right is a 16.

Just my one in the middle, and the one on the left are the 14.

Very nice! I am in the market for a new kit, have about $1200 to spend max. I would love a Saturn but looks like either an M Birch or a Pro M, I cant decide which. I am probably going to go with their 6-piece fusion kit. Would loves me a Saturn kit, but out of my price range, yours is sweet

Nice kit!!!:D

I find it odd how your ride and hi-hat are placed lol, I know someone said about the hihat earlier, but its so far away!

and I generally thought most people position their tom's like that to fit the ride over the bass drum lol:S

Ohwell nice kit anyway!:)

Its perfect setup for how I play.

The ride, I had my buddy move it while I played it until It was a perfect spot where I could hit the Bell on the ride.

The space between the toms is going to be filled up by an auxillary HiHat, the current splash. There will be a larter crash just above and to the left of the ride if your on the kit, and to the right and just above will be a china.

The hihat really isn't that far away, cross over my arms and its perfect.
