these drums, no joke, are the best drums i have herd, seen, and played in my life, the finish is amaaazing, it is beautiful, the grain is amazing, the sparkle in the dark area is amazing (i have a really really good picture of that) lets talk about the plus's of every single drum!!! The rack toms have a very high pitch with a very warm sound that resonates and projects, sounds amazing, the floor tom, though 14" truely booms, it shakes the ground, so deep, the bass drum literally shakes the walls, after i hit it the door next to the drums rattled for a bit, was crazzzy!!! the snare is one of my favorite parts of it, so much pop, so much attack, great tone, and just the right amount of ring!
The only thing that was bad about these drums, not really the drums however, in order to remove the bass drum mount correctly 4 of your lugs will stick out a bit because they are different with the spacing than the others, you just switch them with 4 lugs from the bottom of the drum, not a problem, however if mapex included 4 normal ones i think that'd be a great thing!! anyway, ENOUGH OF MY RAMBLING!!! ON WITH THE PICTURES!!!!!!!
please no posting till i say im done!
EDIT: almost forgot, i would really like to thank Andy@massmusic.net and everyone at massmusic for helping me, this is an amazing kit that i got for a great deal, and man it got here fast, shipped tuesday morning, got it wednesday at noon!!!
