Default The Saturn Manhattan Project

I continue to enjoy my Mapex Saturn Manhattan kit. I have customized it to my exact needs. I added a dw lift on the BD and I fitted a second tom mount on the BD to create a custom tom and cymbal mounting system. I recently bought a used 8x10 high tom and a Mapex combination stand to turn the kit into an awesome 5 piece Bopper!
The sizes are thus,
14x18 BD
8x10 Tom
8x12 Tom
14x14 FT
Matching 5.5x14 20 lug snare
This is definitely a keeper that I will always have in my collection.

Maybe customize those enormous badges right outta there so you can see more of that purdy wood...

JK Bob, that is one good looking setup you got there. Small kits are fun to play. Now you are making me want a Saturn kit. I do love the warmth of the walnut.

I'm surprised you port your 18" kick. What's the deal wit dat?

Thanks Lar, it is a blast to play. I love it. The sound is punchy and full with the 2 ply batters on the toms.
I don't always port the front head. I have a Fiberskyn without a hole that I often use.
I was playing a small club so I put the ported head on to make mic-ing easier.
I use a clear PS3 as batter on the BD with nothing inside.

That was a great looking kit before. But it's even better now.
That'd be a keeper for me too.

Thanks bill, I also have an old Tama Stagestar kit that is similar to this Saturn kit in sizes and color. The Stagestar being an entry level kit doesn't sound as good as the Saturn of course, but it served as the inspiration for me to put this kit together. I always enjoyed playing my Stagestar. It has a lot of heart.
