I have bought a Mapex Horizon kit recently and i am quite happy with it except that the finish seems a little cheap and i don't really like the snare eventhough i pitched it the way i like it and i also use my favorite remo coated heads. So i was thinking to put down a little money and exchange my Horizon for the Meridian Maple. My questions are these: is it worth the money or should i invest in a different snare and keep the rest of the Horizon kit? And how is the snare of the Meridian Maple kit? And is the kickdrum the same size (18") as the Horizon? I'm kind of new to buying a kit cause i could never afford it and would like to settle for once and for all. The saturn is out of my reach and i am looking for the best kit for my money, which is about 1100 euro. Please help me!
