I've been lusting after this kit since last summer, so much in fact that I refinished my cheap old Pearl set in a similar color. Now I've finally got the real thing! Again, these pictures do not do this drum set much justice, it looks absolutely fantastic in person. The finish and hardware is top notch quality. Here are some pics...

Safely arrived...

I'm not really liking the buff brown finish, & the yellow banding detail looks a bit cheap too. Unusual sizes :) :) :)

You are now forgiven!

Looks amazing - that finish is subtle but striking all at once!

Have you started breaking them in yet?

*EDIT* - Also - sizes/specs please!

Congrats man! Love the color too. I have the same kit but in Cobalt Burst and recently replaced the heads to Evans G2 coated and it has made an amazing difference in sound, IMO. You are going to love this kit! I also had my local drum shop (Drums2Go) improve the snare bed on the snare and it made a drastic improvement! If your in the Orlando, FL area, they will do this for free.
