Hi Lukey, sorry I picked up this thread so late, but here it is:
About Bubinga: I was a little sceptical at first but then I got to play (recently) on a Tama
Starclassic Bubinga kit; it sounds amazing
. My own kit, the vintage Premier is birch and I really love it but if I am coming into some serious dough I will defenitively go bubinga!
A ton of tone, quite deepish but also a good volume without having to hit real hard.
Cheers and Happy drumming,
