TenAfterTen,

Nice kit. I bet they sound just as good as they look.
Love the finish, too. I wish I could find a solid green wrap in that ahade.

The incredible shrinking kit!!!

I definately like the original setup, very vivid green finish!

The ec snare head never worked for me. It killed my snare response.

Either way, looks like you upgraded in cymbals and downsized in kit.

4-pc or 6 pc, Very nice!

Thanks, E. The funny thing is the Mapex M Birch are the only thing I didn't pick out of my gear. However, the finish is a winner and I dig the green the most out of the bursts that Mapex offered in this series. Good stuff.

That's funny. I was surprised that you called it that. But when I went back, I noticed that the last pics were a 4 piece setup. That's very rare for me. I run with 10,12,14,16 and 22 about 99% of the time. I got some new pics coming soon. I can't wait to show off a couple of new things...

Anyhow, thanks for the comments, fellas.

I love everything about the kit and I am offcially obssessed with that color. How do you like that tom mount on the bass drum? It looks aggravating to me.

Awesome drums, I like the cymbals even more! How do the aquarian heads sound? I've heard good things about them, but I've only used remo. A couple guys say I should use evans heads because I play Tamas. Does that make any sense?

I've had G2 coated over G1 on this set and they provided a very warm tone. They also had a nice tuning range; I keep mine rather low. I have no complaints about Evans. As far as Evans only on Tama, I dunno. They come stock with Evans heads, but there is no magically exclusive head for any drum that I know of. The Z100 coating that Aquarian uses is superb. Very durable; while my Evans flaked an acceptable amount, the Aquarian have lasted longer. I like 2 ply over 1 ply and this combo is excellent.

Thanks, I have really fallen for the Twentys blend of dark, Turkish sound with just the right of silvery high end. Only Paiste can seem to master that combination.
