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 cha age, 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...
I hear you - I have three kits of my six for sale now . Trying to get down to three only now . My Gretsch USA Custom (recently arrived ) , Ludwig Classic Maple Birdseye (surprisingly a 6 piece kit ) and my on order N&C Bop kit
