Nice kit, must be a new one, I saw your post's on craigslist trying to sell your old kit.

This finish is awesome, great cymbal setup!

The kurillian birch looks su-pouib.

Very clean setup, and a good selection of cymbals. The ZBTs aren't half bad as an x-hat.

Question about your Wuhans--do the 12" and 14" ones sound different enough to make it worthwhile to get both? I've decided to get one, but I can easily afford 2 of them if the sound is different enough. What do you think?

Very nice kit by the way, I'm very envious of your cymbal collection :) All I have is a 16" crash, 20" ride, 8" splash, and 13" hats--all are ZBT's.

Hello and thanks for your compliments man.

To answer your question YES they both sound different from eachother, otherwise I would not have them both, and they both sound awesome, check out a few of my videos on my website and you will here them, they are very distinctive, anyway hope this helps.

Not a fan of labels on cymbals eh? That usually the escuse of some guy with low-grade cymbals but yours are certainly top notch.

Your kit is a nice color too.

I hate labels, I just think they are tacky and ruin the appearance of the cymbal, thanks.

Two 12" Wuhans sound very different, thy have the most random hammering patterns.

Thank you
I play more progressive rock type of stuff, but I also really like jazz and blues, thanks again.

YEAA go PDP!!!
Your kit looks amazing. I love all the cymbals but to me i like having my floor toms a little more flat so the stick isnt pounding into them as much. But whatever is comfy man!
