    I think thatís my favorite finish in the Starclassic B/W. I recently purchased a Starclassic B/W with an outer ply of cedar. It has a beautiful deep tone. Iím sure the kit sounds equally great.

    Thanks Gents. It looks like we got a huge break on this one. Dorian is a monster. I’ve lived in Florida since 1974 and have never seen anything pack winds of 185mph with gusts to 220.
