Go along and play the kit if possible?? And why rewrap it, it's a dw finish man :O
Thanx for the input Fish, I am pretty sure its a standard Maple shell but I cant imagine needing anything more exotic. I love quality standard Maple shells.
Dont worry, I dig the Silver Sparkle wrap and I would never try to modify A DW drum.

What exactly is holding you back from buying the DW? Is it the 14x11 floor/rack(?) tom (which you already said isn't a big deal) or the idea of selling your current kit or something else?

Whats holding me back is the lack of $, having to sell my drums and the 14" Tom.
I was originally trying to get feedback about the price of the kit. I was wondering if the general opinion would be to buy it, by all means necessary.
Its all good, the kit is on the back burner and if I can save for it I will. I know its a good deal and if the kit is still there in a few months ( its already been there for 4 or 5 years) I'll grab it up. And if not, oh well, life goes on.

Yeah, all three of those together would make for a tough descion for anyone. Hope you can buy the kit, or something of that quality in the future. Good luck.

cheers guys, its actually tangerine glass not red (A).

Those Remo snares sound really good. I always liked them. The throws are pretty iffy on them but the shells are cool. Too bad Remo had to go ultra cheap-o on the hardware.
I think those drums would have been a lot more popular if the hardware was a lot better.
But at least it sounds pretty cool.

Great kit, I like the 0 up 0 down set up too.
Very fun.

Hope you get many great years out of them!
Of course they sound good, they're RED!

they are pretty funky, have had to play with the throw alot to get it to hold still slips a bit :@.

hardware definatly the worst part, tension rods keep slipping from rim shots :(. would have looked a lot better with tube lugs (A)

Is your AA Raw Bell Dry Ride a brilliant finish?

I just got an AARBDR as my new (used) ride to replace a Pro Sonix I loathed and the bell of mine seems way darker than your photos. I'm really happy with it.

BTW, your set is enviable, to say the least.

i think so always been disapointed with how light the bell looks when ive seen much darker ones, that was part of the appeal :P

im happy with it of course but i do want another crashable ride so i canswap them in and out.

I hear ya. I was close to getting an HHX Groove Ride but got a really good deal on the RBDR. Its perfect for rock stuff I play.

I think I'm going to start looking into some smaller hand made companies to build my "quiet time" cymbal set. I also still want a Groove Ride.
