Nice kit dude, I own one myself, it may not be the most top of the range kit, but it does it's job with mesh heads slapped on, nice choice of cymbals too.

You have a nice kit with a good selection of cymbals and it's well maintained, but it really doesn't have anything unique about it. Nothing wrong with that, but that's what gets people to comment. See the thread about the stave kit - 110 posts and it hasn't even been assembled yet! Some of that is because the owner is well-known and the stave builder visits here, but most of it is because this is a very one-of-a-kind set.

Nice kit. That wax cherry 16" floor tom would compliment my kit very well. Haha. You can check my kit out here http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=36992

You just can't help but love Mapex.

Cheers.

Hey... I've completely fallen in love with the meinl sound and i was thinking of going in for a complete new line of meinl cymbals. As of now i only own a meinl classics 14" medium crash which is not top of the range but even then im completely infatuated by the sound it produces. I want some suggestions for what meinl cymbals would prove to be a good buy...considering that my experience with meinl doesnt go too far, im asking for suggestions...you can tell me some other brands too.. now im thinking of investing in top of the range cymbals and i really like the meinls. so pour in!!! im also going to trade/sell my cymbals for a complete new line.

thanks...
