    Gorgeous drum Matt, and well kept by the looks of it. Try tuning the rods closest to the snare wires a bit tighter than the rest. Takes advantage of the crimped snare beds.

    Pay no attention to the knucklehead who wrote that review. On one hand he lauds their small size (can fit between toms) before calling out their size as not being the smallest. Which is it, an...

    Thanks. I'm pretty sure that this is a real veneer. Surprisingly many Sq2s have Alpi finishes, like their Santos rosewood finish.
