My luan mahogany, honey lacquer, Player Date I, Big Beat configuration kit came over the last two days, sizes as follows:

14x22
15x16
14x14 (on order)
8x13
6.5x14

Have been ear to ear all day, I feel like I did when I got my first two wheel bike! Seriously I do!

I am very impressed with the quality craftsmanship of these C&C drums, and enjoy C&C's story - these guys are artisans and expert craftsman in every sense! Very much enjoy the looks of these drums, the hardware, the aged marine pearl inlay on bass hoops. Love the honey lacquer finish, and overall retro/vintage vibe...but, the tone! Oh my oh my oh my! The tone has had me drumming for several hours after rushing home from work today - warm, full, low tone...beautiful and thunderous! Very appreciative of the team at C&C and CME/CDE for making it so. Love these drums. Love my K Keropes and Agop Signature crash too (separate thread, pictured here).

Very dignified looking drums. Looks like they stepped right out of the 40's. Bet they sound incredible.

Thanks, Bob and Harry, I really am enjoying it. Have spent the last 36 hours with her and we're getting to know each other well. May actually sleep next to her tonight.
