    Got a question, gang. If the silver set is a 12/14/20 and the blue set is a 13/16/22, what size do you think the champagne set is?

    OP cares, because he's looking at buying them. He posted on Drummerworld too, saying that the seller is insisting the drums are 13/16/22". But OP thinks they're 13/18/24.

    The champagne kit looks like it has a 24" or 26" kick, but I believe that it is lens distortion making it look that way. When you get out towards the edges of a photo, things can really start to look out of proportion.

    That was pointed out on another forum. The Supra on the other end of the photo looks huge, but it also looks like it's a good bit closer to the camera than the kits. The champagne kick also looks like it's slightly behind the blue kit. Maybe that would counteract the lens distorting the edge of the image?

    Out of curiosity, would a cell phone camera create the same distortion along the edges as a real camera with a larger lens? I'm wondering if one or the other could possibly rule out a distorted image.
