I must admit, the color is a little off-putting at first...I'd call it "seasick green", LOL. But what really matters is the sound, and I'm sure that after 10+ years of aging, those tubs sound great!
Random Trivia: Jean-Paul Gaster from Clutch has used the same set of GMS's for over 10 years, and he claims that they sound better with age; I'll bet they do!

Well i'd imagine it did because if it didn't after 10 years (10 months actually) i'd have been forced to wrap it in some kind of camouflage fabric...

It's a pretty nice little kit really, specs perchance?

Nice! They look like the kind of drums that don't have any physical appeal at all, but play very well. In fact, they look very "serious business," like, they sound very good but just don't show it. Like a poker face.

They do look better in person, although I still sometimes get the urge to have them refinished. They sound great, extremely powerful. I bought them new, the story being that GMS had painted that color for a drum show.
They sounded great, the price was great, I could live with the color. I've heard the color discribed as seafoam or pistaccio, as well as a number of references to regurgitation.

perhaps "key lime".

I'll bet they sound amazing. GMS does some nice work.

It needs a long pretentious name for the colour, like 'basking-in-the-joy-of-nature-on-a-sunny-day-green', then people would just go 'yea nice colour'.

The color isn't bad. I think seafoam would be what the color is called. We had a period in the 90's where this was a popular window frame color. Seafoam green.

GMS drums are top quality, so there is no doubt that these sound fantastic. When I bought my DW's in 1994 I was very torn between them and GMS. I went with DW's, but still have a soft spot for the GMS drums.

The fact they have aged for 10 years definitely mellows out the sound. My DW's just get better sounding the older they get. I would think that these would too.

If I'm not terribly wrong, these are Keller shells like my DW's. Don't know for sure though.

Great Kit!!
