Default yes,...another new kit.

It's been a few months since my last post. I just purchased a new kit and should see it in the next few days. It's a Mapex Orion Limited Edition Mappa Burl wood 6pc shell pack.
As some of you know I own several kits but I have never tried or even seen a Mapex kit.

A good friend of mine say's he loves his so we will see. I will post some pics in the next week or so and would love some feedback on this kit from my fellow drummers.

Here's the specs on this kit:7-ply, 7.5mm bass drums, 6.1mm toms, North American maple toms with hand-selected burl maple exterior ply.
Eight coat, hand applied deep gloss lacquer finish
Exclusive Isolated Tom Mounting System on all suspended toms and floor toms
Exclusive Isolated Tom Mounting System on bass drums
Spring-loaded floor tom legs
Low mass, single-point-of-contact lugs
Low profile, cushioned, die cast bass drum claw hooks
2.3mm Steel Mapex Powerhoops
RemoŽ Ambassador drum heads

Sizes: (depth x diameter)

18x22 Bass Drum
16x16 Floor Tom
14x14 Floor Tom
9x12 Mounted Tom
8x10 Mounted Tom
5.5x14 Matching Snare

The list price on this kit is some where around $5,800.00 I bought it brand new with free shipping for $2k, a deal I just could not pass up.
