    Default Kirk's Masters Studio - Midnight Fade

    Hey guys!
    So, this is the kit I bought in early 2008 when I was coming out of retirement and wanted some new drums to celebrate jumping into the Minneapolis area cover band scene. These drums have been amazing in various configurations and settings and have really held up to some fairly grueling years of heavy use. I'm excitedly putting together a new kit at the moment, hence taking the time to reflect on all the good memories with these babies.

    You guys wash your hardware in the driveway like you're washing the car too, right?

    Thanks guys. MLX is classic maple warmth. I love these birch drums for gigging because they sound pretty respectable with that typical birch brightness without having to do more than some basic tuning. Sound guys are always telling me how good these drums sound.
