    How crazy someone had the same inspiration as you, did it, and then traded them? You got cast hoops too. Gorgeous drum set! Congrats on your second STS kit!

    About 10 years ago I bought a 6pc EXR kit off of GC's Used Gear listings. It came with a hanging 14 and I added hanging 16 I found on Ebay. I installed leg brackets on both. Ended up loving the short...

    Totally loving the STS kit!
    I still have a soft spot though for those shells with the lacquer interiors. It's getting increasingly difficult to find that series in as good condition. Usually they...

    BLX Kit Sequoia Red- What to Do?

    I just got 2 new kits, one new one used, and I still haven't sold off the 8pc Prestige Session kit yet. It's not like I need these drums. I had an MLX kit for about 12 years and I love the lacquer...

    I'm surprised that I kind of like how the new logo looks when it's actually stamped on the cymbal as opposed to a web page. It is a constant reminder that, Dude! You got a new cymbal. I wonder how...

    I wasn't going to keep this cymbal but have decided otherwise simply because it is a cymbal I wouldn't choose. I will explore it awhile. I can always sell.

    Nice! Copper insert on that steel free floater chassis.
    From '85 I would have thought those would be DLX, especially with that finish. I'm guessing the shell interiors are lacquered. Great kit and...

    After playing it some more I have reconsidered. Perhaps the contrast of high and low is a good thang. I need to give it a chance. I can always sell it without taking a loss.
