I was wanting to aim for a new kit, i have a Pearl Forum now, and im ready to upgrade. Something like a Mapex Saturn is out of my reach. I was looking at Mapex Meridian Maple, and then i saw Tama Silverstar. Those are the new tama drums, and they are a great price. The shells are birch, and they look great. I just bought a Mapex Black Panther Sledgehammer snare and it sounds really good. Its handhammered brass and im wondering if birch would sound good with brass. Has anyone played the Silverstars?
