    thanks to everyone who has congratulated me on my set (and the things I went through to get it) it was worth it, and again, as soon as I get my camera back, you'll be seeing this beauty
    My kit:
    Pearl Vision VSX (Gun metal sparkle)
    5-1/2" x 14.5" SensiTone snare
    22" x 18" bass drum
    10" x 8" tom drum
    12" x 9" tom drum
    14" x 11" tom drum
    16-1/2'' x 17'' floor tom drum
    2 crashes, 2 rides, 1 splash

      Glad things worked out for you,bro.That is an awesome finish. Especially it's no longer available.I wish the color is available with VMX. But...too bad

        Why is it that musicians make such bad salesmen?
        Hey, not always!

        Truth be told, its a tough balance sometimes!

            Chimera...I thought in Florida it was spelled "color". Are you a UK or Canada transplant?

            Congrats on the new kit. Sorry about the GC screw up. Hopefully the free hardware won't scare you away for good.
            I own or have owned drums and cymbals made by every major manufacturer. My go-to kit is a DW Collectors series set.

              Congrats on the free hardware for your trouble. And look at the bright side - at least you had a DRUMMER looking over the drum department (even if he was an ***hole)!

              Most times when I enter my local GC's, the drum room is 'supervised' by guitar players that have ZERO knowledge about the gear they're offering advise on and trying to sell.

                  My mom is mainly british and my dad is mainly german, so I grew up with most words with the ending of "or" having added a "u" in the middle

                      it shouldn't be "the things I'd do for a Pearl set"
                      it should be this: "what WOULDN'T I do for a Pearl set!"
                      haha I took away money that was supposed to go to my first car to buy a new vision vbx. should be comming in sometime this week, I'm really excited!
