    Default Masters Premium MRP in Ocean Sparkle

    Finally got my rack mods done, my white reso head, and my s-hoops on and my set-up tweaked, so this is long-overdue.....not the best pics, but until I can get them outside for some good pics these will do

    Thanks Al! As you know, the finish is so hard to capture in its true beauty in photos. It is really one of the best looking finishes ever! Glad I got a great deal on it. Thanks for all the help and info

    You have 1 beautiful drum kit LD! The Chrome is soooooooooooooo much more complimentary to Ocean Sparkle to my eyes than the Satin.

    Also like your starter kit! Tell the children to "Stay off of my Masters!"

    Thanks Lonny! I personally like the chrome better on this finish better as well. The satin is nice, but my taste is the chrome!

    Right next to the starter kit is my old (1986) exports that is the kids kit as well They are also the reason I got the s-hoops. I like the mastercast hoops, but with a 10 and 4 year old that do play this kit from time to time, the s-hoops will protect the bearing edges until they are more skilled. Plus, the s-hoops are very rigid and tune up similar to the mastercast. Not to worry, I put the mastercast back in the box those came in and am keeping them safe until their return!

    And the sound.....pure beauty. Can't believe how much better the masters sound than my old drums!

    Eric and I felt that sound difference at almost the same time and were in disbelief most of the time! 6 ply 7.5 mm Masters Rule! Love your snare too!

    What a great kit! Always adored that finish. Love S-hoops but they make clipping on mics a challenge.
