Default Video of new Pacific FS Birch kit

Just a quick demo before I headed off to work. Not really representative of my best playing, but I polished all of the drums last night and replaced most of the heads, set it up today and was able to fool around a bit. I realize some of the toms have some funky notes going on, I plan to fix that later. Kit doesn't like to stay in tune very long though.

The story for those of you that don't know, I found this on a Guitar Center used clearance. It had no hardware so I managed to pick it up for $160 out the door. That included the snare as well. Bought some hardware and cleaned it up a bit (was ratted out a bit and scratched up, had beer and pop residue on it). All in all it's not a bad kit, especially what I paid for it. I can certainly tell the difference between it and my Masters though - not even close. Thanks for watching tell me what you think!

New heads cost 160.00 so I would say you did OK with this purchase.

Nice buy. I have the PDP M5 (maple). Got it used for $200, no snare and no hardware. I love it.

actually, I have a surplus of semi-used heads that I've tried for a week or less at a time on my other kits. The kick head was an SK1 barely used so I saved major dough there. Ended up buying 2 new g1 heads and a studio-x. Everything else was gravy. :-)

Inspect the bearing edges and go for it. I still wish I would have opted for the Pearl Vision for $100 more but I can't complain too much. It's got some nice punch to it.
