    +1. That finish is much nicer than I would expect to see on a kit at this price point!

    Looks real nice.


    Its unfortunate that the kick mount plates are so huge and ugly. I wonder how easy it would be to take a pic of the finish somewhere else on the drum and then create a laminate sticker to go over it...

    Its odd that its a satin finish aluminum(?) and not shiny chrome like the hardware on the kit.

    Red kits sound nicer from what I hear, right Nova?

    I agree, I've actually removed it and I'm just using the normal tom arm.

    Really good, very impressed, I think they're a really nice sounding drum. I can't differentiate between my old MCX and these. Although I do want to change the heads to something, perhaps coated... recommendations???

    That's awesome, I really hope my wife lets me order a set of dmp's soon.

    I really dig the sound I get from my Remo suede emperors over clear ambassadors.
