    It sounds like you did well in your deal with GC. Last summer I wanted to trade my 4 pc MRX in for a 5pc MHX. They said I would do better selling it myself compared to trading it . The MHX was $850.00 and I sold the MRX for $650.00 compared to GC’s trade price of $450.00.

    My local GC has a great staff at (Brookfield Wi) they really care about keeping customers happy. Congratulations Broken Sticks on your new Masters !

    Well to update everyone so far. It has not been a fun few days. I received my set on time last week but due to my hectic work schedule i didnt get to it until the weekend. I actually took some time off work so i could set up and play these but, i didnt get passed unboxing the bass drum and i discovered a huge crack in the hoop. After talking on the phone pretty much all morning last Friday I boxed everything back up and took the set to Guitar Center. Despite them re assuring me they would make things right (which i knew they would) i was upset I took time off work to do this and cant.

    The next day i spoke with the store at first they were just gonna have Pearl make me a new hoop, but they told me they opened everything up and found the bass drum shell was cracked too. They told me the initiated a return for full credit and shipped out another set with upgraded express shipping. Should be here tomorrow but i probably wont get to it until the weekend. I am glad Guitar Center was true to their word but this isnt the first time this happened with them and this happens often.

    Anyway ill report back with another update and hopefully some pics when I can 😊

    Sorry to hear that. I used to have a set with your Bronze Glitter as a base. I added a black fade to it with black hardware. This kit was sold to a police officer in Australia... and he loves it. I thought you might appreciate these pics while you're waiting for your replacement kit.

After my trade in the last minute i went with a Masters BCX in Gold Bronze Sparkle. I hope i made the right choice in the BCX over MCX but only time will tell. I got a heck of a deal on my trade in plus 10% off my Masters and free shipping, so i only paid 420.00 for the kit. I will use the kit mostly for recording drum covers. Anyway i joined the Masters family and cant wait for it to be delivered
    Awesome set and great buy! Just know that if you are joining the Master's Army you have to go though Lonnie a.k.a. Nova. And seeing as how you are buying a Master's set AND have owned Red Drums, well, yeah, Lonnie will be your man!

    Everything was delivered yesterday so I'm ready for round 2!

    Everything seemed to go okay I inspected and didnt notice any damage.

    I also ordered an Ambassador bass drum head and a double Falam Slam pad
