    Yes welcome and congrats on a great purchase. Matte Walnut is a classy finish, and combined with the Masters recipe you will not be disappointed!

    Hi all, sorry about the long absence. I received the kit in August 2017 and set it up promptly. Unfortunately, work and life interfered and I've had less than a tenth of the amount of time with it than what I expected. I am currently the kit percussionist for 2 concert bands plus a frequent sub for a small dixie/jazz combo, so those shows coupled with crazy work schedule meant I didn't have much time to really get to know the kit until June of this year.

    I played the stock heads for a while then replaced them with coated Ambassadors over clear Ambassadors. In any configuration, with any tuning choice, they sing. These quality of these drums is undeniable and I'm extremely happy with the kit.

    I have just returned from a holiday in New Brunswick, which included a stop at the Sabian factory. Naturally I left with a couple goodies as a late birthday present to myself. I'll do my very best to get some pictures tonight and get them posted ASAP

    Default Pictures!

    Sorry for the extreme delay, but here they are in their dimly-lit glory!

    One note: I ordered a 20x16 BD but the factory sent 22x18 instead. Rather than wait 4+ months for the correct sized BD and in the meantime have a kit without a BD, I accepted the slightly larger dimensions and moved on. Otherwise, everything is as previously specified:

    22 x 18 BD
    10 x 7 RT
    12 x 8 RT
    14 x 14 FT
    16 x 14 FT
    Snare: Pearl Limited Edition 14 x 6.5 Kapur

    Cymbals (L to R in driver's perspective)
    14" Sabian Artisan hats
    16" Sabian AAX Dark Crash
    17" Sabian HH Extra-Thin Crash
    8" Sabian AA Splash
    21" Sabian HH Vintage Ride
    7" Sabian HHX Evolution Splash
    16" Sabian AA Thin Crash

    That is one of Pearl's nicest stock finishes I've ever seen. Nice choice! Sorry about the kick, I would've loved the 20x16. But the kit looks like it's set up very comfy for you. Congratulations!

    Great looking kit medium! Maybe you can work out a deal and keep the 22 " kick until they send you a 20"? After all, it was there screw up and you are the customer! Regardless, nice kit and love that finish!

    I was offered a similar accommodation when a mistake was made.

    Nice kit, I have a 20" and would be interested in your experiences with the 22"...do you actually prefer it? Would you rather have the 20", if so why?

    Thanks D4L. I absolutely love the finish. Completely timeless. And it is definitely a comfy setup. I like having cymbals spaced out a little, but I've been contemplating moving things around a bit to fit in another crash (likely my HHX X-treme).
