Re: Wh do you think of this kit


That's one of the prettiest kits I've seen. I agree with the others, it looks so inviting and ready for grooving. You've done a great job tainojim making it so interesting and complete and the arrangement of drums and cymbals looks very ergonomic.

Forget the 10" splash -- that was a suggestion for someone who didn't have any splashes. I'd try one of those blue coated cymbals or the stacked cymbals or ones with holes in them. It's nice to see you have a sizzle ride.

Re: Wh do you think of this kit


Hey Tainojim I saw your set and it is knockout beautiful, I'm thinking of buying another set in the future I thought of Gretsch, DW, Sonor what you could do is let me know if there are other models of Gretsch or the names of Gretsch models that are made in America other than the model that you have. I would like to look them up on line so far I think Sonor is at the top of my list, any help would be appreciated. PS I SURE MISS BROOKLYN

Re: Wh do you think of this kit


SLINGWERLAND I posted a reply to your question in the thread you started-- The USA Customs and the Renown series are both made in the USA.

Check the thread you started where you asked about the US made Gretsch drums- there is a video link in my reply that shows the North Carolina factory and they show some of the processes Gretsch uses and the people who do them...

Re: Wh do you think of this kit


Do'ns got right. Personally, anything custom would be my preference as you can see. I just can't afford the really nice hand crafted cymbals that I really wanted.

Improvisation would be the word, Ladies & Gentlemen.
