thanks , they sound incredible !! I am coming from a very old set of Rogers so the difference in sound is amazing. The bass is killer deep,full, hits hard with a D112 and emad2 batter. Love the toms too, originally had the three pcs 22'' 16'' and 12'' and decided to add the 14'' a week later. They sound awesome, got a gig in two weeks can't wait to get them mic-ed up and under the lights. I Think you will be very pleased with your new Saturns too !

Nice set. A student of mine just got a Saturn 4 with a Black Widow snare drum. I tuned it up a bit & had a play on it... really very impressed. Just as you describe - killer BD and the toms were resonant and warm. Great drums.

Wow, those look great. That was actually the finish I was going to get before I decided against the Saturns.

I really like everything about that set, the drums, cymbals, percussion, heads, etc. Enjoy! Peace and goodwill.

sometimes you just have to take some outdoor shots to bring out the real beauty in a kit.
These will be playing their first show tonight at Liberty Fest in Twin Lakes WI !!
