I love them! I'm not too impressed with the snare that came with it, but I have a piccolo anyways, so it's not a big deal. I would recommend them, definately! I'm just waiting for one day when I can buy their "Deep Forest" set.. oh my.. I think that'd be the closest to heaven I am going to get here on earth.. ha!

drum setup
I have a 5 piece Gretsch maple kit. with 2 snares. This kit is SWEET. i couldn't ask for a better sound out of it.
13" piccolo snare
14" maple snare
11" tom mounted off of cymbal stand
15" floor tom
As for cymbals, I have a nice little package here too
14" Sabian fusion AAX hats
16" Zildjian A fast crash- THE SWEETEST CYMBAL EVER!!!!!!

This is my kit, it is a maple colour, I love it so much. Does anyone else have a Gretsch kit? I think they are the most amazing kits.

Insane Drummer 01-17-2003 11:54 PM

lol.. ooooh dark crashes are nice.. every played on an AAXsplosion crash.. those babys rock.. i got a 17 inch.. it sounds good in any style of music.. can cut through real well in metal and hard rock.. and has nice sound in many differnt softer styles.. its really a very high quality cymbal.. next i need to upgrade my ride.. mines a little.. um pingy.. hehe i want more of a darker sound but a bright powerful unlathed bell(the exspolsion crash has one. its great sounding).. dark but not too jazzy but an powerful yet i wonder if such a thing exists.. lol.. i know sabian HH raw bell dry rides are liek tht. but they are really exspensive..
