If only everything I owned were 18"Not gonna say anything...
Glad I'm apparently not crazy!They look the same size to me, too.
Wow!! Gorgeous!!! Buy these!!
I'm inclined to agree, fantastic kit for the price! If you can get it shipped to you for a reasonable enough amount to where you can still get a nice ride and a crash for your budget, I'd seriously give these some consideration. I've played several Saturn Vs, and they really do sound great.Ask Darth about shipping, I would for the price it's going for!
That's a lot of kit for the money.
That said, given your $1600 budget, here's what I would do.
1) Buy a used Zildjian K ride (or equivalent) for about $250-300
2) Buy a good used 18" K (or equivalent) crash for about $175-200
Since you said you're good on hi hats, this would give you a good basic cymbal setup you can expand on over time.
3) Buy a good used snare for about $200-300. There are a ton of options in that price range. I would personally look for a 14" COB or maple snare in a depth of 5.5-6.5".
4) If you need any hardware, buy that next. But you didn't mention anything about that, so I'll assume you're good on that front.
That leaves you with about $800-975 of your original budget (assuming you don't need hardware). Which means you'd have to go over a little to get those Saturns. But that still leaves plenty of other options open for a good used shell pack.
