Fantastic sounding drums with warmth and identity

21.02.2016
I've been looking at These kits for quite the time, and when i finally was in the process of getting a new kit, it was an easy choice. I had a snare drum shape The Brooklyn series before, so I knew the build quality was good.
My first reaction unpacking These drums Is that the finnish is much more beautiful than any pictures would suggest. The sound is very greatchlike; open, warm with a dry attack yet They really SING! The tuning range is huge, They go deep down a fat and punchy sound, the bass drum can (eventhough its only 18 "* 14") really go as low to accommodate any setting I've been playing with from jazz to funk, reggae and even a little rock! And of course They tune up to a great bop sound as well, but no surprises there! ;)

I've played Gretsch Catalina, renowns and New Classics before and was wondering about the difference in sound and quality related to price. But this really is a whole different level!

All in all, I am very satisfied with my purchase its a great kit, with the top of the best features!
