Here's the deal. I haven't picked one up yet, but after alot of research and changing my mind, I have narrowed it down. I think? I originally settled on a 5pc. Tama
Superstar Hyperdrive lacquer kit, but now I have thrown both the Mapex
Saturn IV and the Tama
Starclassic Performer B/B into the mix. However, if I were to opt for either of the two higher-end kits, I really need to sit down and actually play them. I found a "stright up" drum store that claims to have a large selection, so this weekend I plan on paying them a visit and see what happens. If I fall back to the superstar, I won't feel too bad, as that will leave me with more cash for some nice cymbals. Either way I will let you guys know what I go with. Oh, and I will definitley post some photos when I have the new kit!
