Which drums to choose?

You can find great deals on Ludwig Keystone X kits for that price.

Oak brings out this incredibly modern tone from USA made kits.

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...
Yes, that does look a top piece of kit!! (y) :)

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.
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.

From the synopsis of another DW thread it doesn’t really matter of your choices - or any other drum kit you could add. “ It’s all in the head”. Boy they got that right LOL.
