Default Mapex Pro M Redwood Fade

Finally, after being a member (albeit inactive) for over 4 years, I've finally got something worthwhile to post about!

Picked up this beauty today, its a Mapex Pro M in Redwood Fade;
Sizes: 8", 10" & 12" Mounted Toms, 14" & 16" Floor Toms, and a 22" Kick

(The snare is a 13"x6" Sonor Force 3005 Custom, which I severely need to change the head on.)

I picked it up off the 'Bay, and realized the guy lived round the corner from me, so we struck up a deal and now it's sitting in my spare room!)
(Almost) all the toms have EC2 Clears, and the kick is fitted with an EMAD and a mic port hole. It sounds so cliche, but these pictures definitely don't do the finish justice.
The pictures are just the shell pack, as I'm waiting to pick up the rest of my hardware from my guitarists house when he returns from holiday. As soon as I have it set up fully, i'll be sure to post vids/pics. Enjoy!

It looks great. A new snare head and you'll be ready to go.

Those are real beauties! I really like Mapex drums.
Perhaps a Black Panther snare to finish the kit off in the near future :)

Excellent sizing, nice finish, you got a great baseline for a top of the line stage set up.

Thanks guys, good to see the warm reception.

@GRUNTERSDAD & Bobdadruma;
I do need to replace my primary snare head, I do want to pick up a seconday snare,
(Though I would like to replace my main snare also).
Wouldn't mind picking up the Black Panther 'Sledgehammer' (14" 6.5", Hammered Brass Shell) as my secondary, and the 'Blaster' (13x7 Maple) as my main. We can all dream eh? xD
