    Default TFW you get your holy grail (can't quite believe this has actually happened)

    As of yesterday, I am the proud owner of a SonorLite kit, Scandinavian birch finish, in the most perfect condition I've ever seen.
    It is spectacularly beautiful and sounds absolutely insane.
    I am an emotional wreck.

    I'll post proper pictures when I have them.
    I now own my two favourite drum kits ever made. And I'm actually going to have to deal with taking them to gigs all the time cos I don't have space for more than two kits!!

    Thank you! That SQ2 in your profile photo looks incredible, is that American Walnut finish?

    I'm pretty sure it is... I have a beech snare drum with the AW outer ply, and it's a beautiful instrument.
