    Default Joining the reference family!

    Bought this kit from another member here, and i feel blessed to be able to call it mine! I have a masters kit, and it is an incredible drumset.. but this is truly a master piece instrument. The fit and finish is incredible, sound is sublime and it is STUNNING!

    Once i find a matching 8" tom, i will be set! Can not wait to get her set up tomorrow and start playing!

    enough yapping, here are the pics!

    By far my favorite pearl series .

    The volume that comes out of these shells is unrivaled. I also like the shift in tone and depth as the layering order of the wood mix change from the 12 '' down to the larger drums ; i like the saturated roar of the larger drums made of incredible mids and lows . A very distinct caracter.
