Yes, it's stunning! Getting the Imperial Star back in 1983 taught me the important life lesson that having the same gear as your idols doesn't make you play like them : ) I sort of fancy the Benny Greb snare though...I was listening to Regatta de Blanc last night...still blows me away every time I hear it.
Good choice, every single armory or Saturn kit I have sat down and played at the gc have sounded incredible. I have owned everything from gretch to sonor designers to the Japanese TAMA star classic maple and Ludwig super classic and I can honestly say that the mapex more than hold their own.Thanks friends! I purchased Mapex Armory 6-piece . Unfortunately, it turned out there is no free shipping (I bought there Roadshow and had free shipping). I would have one more question. What hardware would you buy? Mapex HP8005 or HP6005? I decided to choose Paiste Pst7 cymbals.
