    Default New Export kit

    Got my new Export kit in yesterday. I have to say im very impressed with it. For the price it cant be beat, especially coming w the hardware it does. Ordered some Evans G2 coated heads for em, can't wait to see how they sound then. Also, ordering a white Pearl reso bass head. I love the look of the coated head on a black kit! Going from a Vision kit to this, but I dont feel like it was a downgrade. Heres a couple of pics. Probly gonna put the 10" tom away, I'm so use to 1 up 1 down! haha...

    Exports were wonderful drums IMO. They had some minor drawbacks, mainly the poplar snare they sold with the later versions, but overall they looked great, they sounded great, and they were easy on the budget.

    That's a fine looking kit you've got there!

    Thx man, and yeah I agree with you. This is the 2nd Export kit I've had, really liking it. I change the setup around yesterday, went back to what I'm use too, so much better....for me, anyway.

    That's just a classic, ergonomic setup. When I'm rocking a 4-piece I have mine set up pretty much the same, and when I play my kit as a 5-piece I tend to leave the right where it is - I just have it up where it's just clearing the 12" rack tom.

    Looks fantastic. Black, chrome, bit of wood grain on the hoop.. how can you go wrong?
    More pics when the heads are changed out! But I think they look sensational either way.

    Awesome kit. I've had a black export for 18years now and it still sounds awesome. Congrats! Have fun with it!
