Gorgeous, gorgeous. nuff said. I just noticed upon further review you have wooden hoops for all of the drums, not just the snare. WOW

Thanks guys......Yeah I am super excited, I have been waiting for a while. The yamaha rep told me I have been the only one so far to order this new color. Its so cool that the serial numbers are in sequence. The matching snare is what really gets me excited. I basically designed this kit after my favorite snare, the Elvin Jones signature.

Now that is a beautiful finish! Great choice. Yamaha makes some of the nicest laquered finishes in the market. I have the YMCA's in black sparkle sunburst and it is nice as well. I LOVE the gold though... that does remind me of Elvin!

I will set them up tonight I promise. I have to swing by guitar center and get some hardware and new heads, will post pics after that. They wont have wood hoops yet, cause i accidentally ordered 14" mounted hoops so I have to route for floor tom legs. Hell maybe I will do that too tonight.

WOW! That's a long wait but it looks well worth it, beautiful kit. Best of luck with it. Also love the Zildjian K. You may need to take a few sick days to make sure everything is just right.

Oh my goodness, that is one outstanding kit man. I recently got a custom order on a YSCN natural finish, same sizes plus an 8" tom, even that is blowing me away. i hope to someday upgrade to maple custom shells someday, and i think you have just helped me decide which finish to go for! that is beautiful man. What is the ride like, im buying all new cymbals soon and im totally stuck for which ride to get!

Cheers man, peace! enjoy that great kit!

Very, very nice. That gold sparkle fade is really cool. The build and hardware on the MCA is superb. Nice choice and congratulations.

I am fond of how light the flying dragon pedals are, but I use all dw hardware, its by far my favorite. Even there cymbal stands are second to none.

Those yamaha maple snare sound great. A drummer had one last night where I did live sound. Yamaha makes great drums at a fair price.
