Wow! This is exactly the kit I've been looking for. Sounds amazing. I was wondering, if you don't mind me asking, how much you got it for?

You guys and your Classic Maple drums in "vintage" sizes are killing me. How do I look at my poor drums now?? It'll never be the same again. :(

Now seriously, those kits are amazingly beautiful. The sizes are perfect, the 4-piece is just pure class, the finishes are outstanding, the lugs are the prettiest.. And of course they must sound heavenly. Congrats.

To the OP, I have a 24" bass drum too and I use a Coated Emperor with a felt strip. To me it gives a beautiful open, round, boomy sound. Great for live gigs unmiced.

Now I switched to a Clear PS3, just for a change, and it sounds great too, but much more "modern".. that is, a fat, short punch. Almost no resonance, pure attack.

No one is better than the other, they're just different. I think the Emp would suit your style better though.

Anyway, congrats, enjoy those drums.

Of all the kits & photos in the current Ludwig catalog, your set is my favorite.

Envious but let us know how these babies are as time goes on. Congrats..
