oh no! no pinstripe?! WTF happened while I was gone? AND they discontinued to Mapex Saturn V? geez...seems like whenever a consumer product is TOO GOOD and does not have a 'planned obsolescence' for repeat business it gets axed. just look at the 1980's Toyota pickup!
The Saturn's are still about they just released a new model that isn't as good for the working drummer as the tour series. If it ain't broke don't fix it!
Black dots seem to have come back into vogue. By all means keep with the pinstripes, they've never stopped making them.
