I am curious about how you came to this choice
like what you look for in this kit
Just something to think about...
If you buy a seven piece kit... no matter what quality... you are dedicating yourself to some
high cost come drum head changing time. Then if you decide to play out and want to bring
the whole kit... etc... blah blah blah.
Is birch the type of sound you are looking for in a wood?
Are those drum sizes going to be
appropriate for the music you are playing? I don't mean to come off like a jerk if that is what I sound like. I just want to be sure that you have put some thought into it before you drop about 1k on a kit that doesn't suit your needs, or requires a lot of maintenance.
Unless you go used.. and find a good deal.. you will most likely not get a better price. Birch is
I think is less expensive than maple... so you get a deal with that. Today you get so much more for your money. Isolation mounting, color combinations, etc... the beginner/intermediate kits of today are much better than even a few years ago.
If it is just that you want options to hit you might wan to check out some of the mini-timbales or ddrum
's version of the octoban, rototoms, etc... then you can use less drum set and more effects...
Hope everything works out for you...
