Default My Mapex M Birch

I couldn't find my original post (with the shite quality pics), anyway...finally some half decent pics of my new baby. From a friends digicam, before I changed the factory heads and added a china and two more splashes. Thanks for your time.

Are those NOVA drumsticks? I bought a ton of those on musiciansfriend.com a while back for practice/rehearsal. I'm not a huge fan of the tip (I like either acorn or ball tip), but it's a ton of pretty durable sticks for the price.

I like the finish and the configuration, but you should definitely think about updating the cymbals to some more "pro" sabians.

Great finish. Great set. Your setup looks reaaaaallly comfortable to play on.

But i think you are in true need of a cymbal upgrde. Besides the hi-hats, i think that they are one of the worst if not the worst cymbals ever made. But thats just my opinion.

Everything else looks great.

Wow that cherry looks absolutely beautiful in the light. AND it matches your window shades lol.
Clean set-up, though im not a fan of 3 up 1 down. But it still looks nice!

Have to disagree on the B8s being the worst ever! IMHO they are one the top sets for the price range and for beginers... just my opinion.

I got a mapex m birch - awesome kit!!!

Thanks for the welcomed comments folks. I knew I should've left a footnote commenting on the B8's. The cymbals came with the kit and yes they're the first thing that will be replaced, when time and money allow. They're not that bad, apart from the godawful ride of course.
Nova sticks? I believe so mate. I always get sticks for xmas but I favour wooden tip Pro Mark 5A.
I'm reading more and more about Mapex, I'm pleased with it.
