Exceptional! The nice thing about your kit is that you can downsize to approximate a bop kit and everything in between. Lots of flexibility.Enjoy them!

Thanks for sharing.

p.s. I am the proud owner of a one up two down USA Custom kit and after one year, I still smile when I play or look at them. I am sure you have similar feelings.

Wow what an amazing first post. That is basically my dream kit. I love the walnut with the contrasting gold hardware. Congrats man and welcome to the forum. One request though, can we have some good, clean, unfiltered photos? Just to really show off that finish.

Absolutely stunning kit.

You have a very intriguing head combo nation on your toms. How do you decide on coated diplomats?

True that. I like the satellite (Weckl influenced, perhaps?) kick. Super nice looking house, too.

I had a gig with a Gretsch USA, and Ambassador Coated were installed as resonance drumheads. I very like it, but i have tried with diplomat for a sound less Jazz. Maybe I will try with clear diplomat or clear ambassador...

Beautiful drums.

I stopped by my local shop last night and a 3-piece set of USA Customs in Burnt Orange Gloss in 12/14/18 configuration. OMG. Just stunning. Then I made the mistake of striking the 8x12 tom with a stick. I literally squealed. It sounded so good.

I can see the writing on the wall. I'll end of owning a set of these one day.

I can only see certain types of photos here on DW (as I am using a work computer) so my crappy luck. I don't known why. I just see little square boxes with a "x' in them. How cruel. Oh well, I'm sure they're gorgeous.

I'd be happy with just those 3 pieces in those sizes. Still pretty pricey though, just for that, I bet.

Amazing kit....I love Satin Walnut and the Gold Hardware goes with that finish perfectly. I've liked that snare drum since its introduction.....eyed it up many times online.
Congratulations on some very fine drums and gear.

Cheers,
Gary
