The number of 4 pieces kit you had is crazy, why changing them so often?
Yeah,ok, I understand, I'm more a keeper, especially in Synth, I still have my D50 Roland and my Yamaha TX 802 from the 80's and I'm too new in drums to have the willing to change, unless it's a Tama Star....If I would have to have a 4 pieces, it would be a Tama Star Walnut and the normal one would be a Tama Maple Star.... I also have not enough knowledge to see if it's better or not...Why not ? Tastes change , something nicer comes along . Change is good .

I love this little Yamaha Hip Gig Jr. This was its maiden voyage for me-- I was a ringer for a college jazz combo.
