        Stick with it... no point upgrading to somehting a lil better than what you have.. might as well wait and make a bigger jump in the future to say masters etc...

          I agree. Mine's not really "what should I do?", it's more "I hate my life"

              I wouldn't feel too bad about it guys. What gets you so convinced the all-birch solution would be better for you, hm? The fact their list price is higher? I'm almost certain the birch/basswood hybrid shells your kits have will sound boomier and deeper because of the so-called-cheaper wood, AND you have them in the now discontinued lacquer version. They're VINTAGE man!

                    Sell them to me for CHEAP then put that money towards an MCX.

                    Really tho, I'm sure yours sounds great! A nearly brand new kit...it should last you awhile. If you are happy with what you have, then envy wont be the downfall of your bank account.

                    I am trying to rid from my life all that I can do without, including drum gear.
                    I am selling:
                    Sabian 17" AA Metal-X Crash
                    Sabian 18" AA Heavy Ride

                      Keep your VLX's with pride.

                      IMHO the birch basswood combo sounds sensational. Just because the new Visions can be straight birch or straight maple doesn't mean they are necessarily going to sound better.

                      Since I first heard the Visions at NAMM last year I have been really impressed with the sound.

                      If and when you get the chance, have a listen to VLX, VBX and VMX side by side and let your own ears tell you whether your should be depressed or not. I own Masters and would not be unhappy with VLX.

                      cheers

                            I for one am happy with mine I knew what I was buying and the only thing that I would have gotten upset over is if the new ones would have had better hoops/optis for the same price point as the 07's that would have felt like we were ripped but we liked the dual wood sound so we bought them right.. If I were to do it now I would choose a different color the black sparkle with the graphics.....hmm do you think a 16 tom in that color would look good with the blue strata fusion set.
