Default It told you I would do this . . .

I've been wanting a new kit for some time and today I walked into the Long Island Drum Center with a fist full on one hundred dollar bills and said, "I want that one."

I bought a Tama Performer Birch Bubinga in the lava light. It was kind of funny because I go in there all the time and say to the owner, "Dennis, I love that kit." But I never have the cash. But I add "one of these days, I am going to come in here with a fistful of one hundred dollar bills and get one"

Today was that day. :)

Ah, that's great Ken. I'm happy for you man. Bubinga is definitely is a wonderfully seductive sound, I might have to get a kit someday. What do you normally play? I'd like to hear your impressions of the Bubinga after you've had them for 6 months or so and got to know them better.

I haven't even set the kit up yet. I've been busy; but once I do aI will follow-up with some pictures.

Larry,

I was not really a bubinga fan but I really like the birch/bubinga. I actually really liked the sound of this specific kit. And it is hand-made in Japan. I also have a Mapex M Birch, which I love as well.

Great score Ken!

Bubinga is hands down my all time favorite wood for drum shells.

Enjoy and looking forward to your pics!

Building suspense by not having pics, I can tell that you like to read thriller novels. Great idea! Get them on the edge of their seats, Then let them have it! LOL Just Kidding! Put your pics up when you get them.

Thanks for the comments guys. I am embarrassed to say that I have been unable to compress the files to upload them here. But they are on my myspace. I am going to add the 14" tom and am thinking about adding the matching snare as well. I am not sure. What do you guys think? Now I my using my Warlord.
