anyone played one?
I've not played one, but I love the Premier Artist/Premier series, they are great sounding drums. I've heard the Premier Maple in person, and they are fantastic drums - I'd assume the GenX ones carry on the good sounds!
The Gen-X kits cost a fortune, theres been one in a music shop n dublin (taht SUCK at selling drums) its been there for about 3 yeasrs now. but i tapped the 10" tom when i was in there the last day and even from the tap it sounded amazing.
I'm ahead, I'm a man
I'm the first mammal to wear pants, yeah
I'm at peace with my lust
I can kill 'cause in God I trust, yeah
It's evolution, baby

I owned a full GenX kit fora while. It was was very good. The drums were dryer and had a more agressive sound than most modern maple drums, similar to Trick's aluminum entries. I really like the toms and BD, but felt the snare was lacking something, it was Ok but no spark for me. Quality was good but the BD did start to delaminate and required repair in 2 locations. The lugs/strainer were good but nothing special....
The Gen-X drums used to be their own series but are now part of the Premier series which can be ordered in 3 shell configurations (Maple, Birch or Gen-X).
Gen-X snares are also available as part of the Modern Classic snare drum line.
Ive got a Premier Modern Classic in Maple but ive tried the GEN-X and its a supurb drum!
