    As for the confusion about #49; you would just have to view other catalogues to check. Though I doubt one single line of drums was made in two differently named similar chrome finishes.
    Okay, thanks for clearing that up on the VB series. I know that in my online searches there were many versions (VBL,VBX, VBA, etc.), so that makes sense. On the chrome, it does seems strange that they would have two different names for it, but I'm just going to assume they're the same since they're both listed as #49. I just wish I could know for sure before ordering.

    My bet is that the reference to "mirror" chrome is simply erroneous.

    Thanks for all the responses. They've been helpful. Does anyone own a kit with the birch/basswood shells? I'm still wondering how they sound.
