Default Ddrum 7pc African Bubinga Drum kit

Here's a few pics of a new kit I just purchased. This is a ddrum 7pc kit. The shells are African Bubinga, die cast hoops, and tube style lugs. The sizes are kick drum 20x22, toms 8x10,8x12,9x13,13x16,14x18 and a 7x13 matching snare drum. The stock heads are ok but I will replace them with a set of Evan ec2's. All my cymbals are Paiste 2002, all hardware is 1000 series Pearl and one DW double tom stand, WHat do you guys think?????

B-E-A-Utiful. I love that finish, how does bubinga sound compared to maple? Brighter like birch or what?

Oh wow! That's a beauty!

Last time I saw a Dios bubinga, it was the 5-pc introduction model. I had no idea they offered extra sizes. Tama quoted me just over 5K for that setup shellpack in SC bubinga. How much did the shellpack or kit set you back?

Again, you have a great setup, great looking kit!

Very very nice. Those are the lugs copied from the Gretsch New Classic line which I love.
Nothing better than natural wood grain showing. And the line of Paiste look good as well.
Wondered why the lugs on the snare are different.

They are, aren't they? I thought it's backstock Gretsch lugs and Tama hardware?

Great set, but what I am curious about is the bassdrum beater. What's up with that? It's horizontal.

A wonderfully inviting kit. I like the how the coppery B8 color of the 2oo2s compliments the hue of the bubinga. Very, very nice.

Man, that's an incredible finish! I really like the tubes too...very classy. I'm playing a 13"x7" Pork Pie Patina Brass snare and while the size felt weird at first, having always played a 14"...I'm hooked on it now.

This makes me miss my 2oo2 collection, as well.

I find it very interesting that they have gone from electronic drums to beautiful acoustic drums.

WHOA!!!!

That's probably *less* money than a Yamaha oak, and definately less than a Mapex saturn.

That's an amazing deal! Like I said before, the same thing in tama sc bubinga would run 2 grand more.

Beautiful set and very 2008: Shallow toms, deep snare and bass, dual floor toms. I've always like the coppery color of 2002s.

I've seen some bubinga that looks a lot different than this. Is there a lot of variation in bubinga appearances?

The is the second beater on a double pedal. I did not have the second pedal hooked up so the tension is off and the pedal lays back. Good question from what you can see from the picture.

Yes. The chap who I know who inspected my bubinga ply type shell drums when I first recieved them who makes custom basses told me that my drums were AA flame bubinga as indicated by the specific visual appearence of grain grade bubinga based on the quality of the visual grain seen on the inner and outer plies chosen for these all bubinga 9 ply drums. Unix probably has a much better handle on the detailed terminology of all of this related to various wood grains and specifically different grades and types of bubinga wood in this case.

I know that i've seen several types of bubinga grain pictured in kits on the DW forum including this very lovely kit in this thread so this must be the case. Probably different species of bubinga wood too adding into the visual grain type mix as well as various grades of wood grain chosen as you and others have seen.

The original tama SC bubinga omnitune also has a very different grain pattern.
