I recently bought this set to play in a Jimi Hendrix tribute band www.axisexperience.com. I did not realize how well they are made. For playability this set can't be matched. The drums are very thin African Mohogany with die cast rims. The rims are almost level with the heads(1/8"),so you can be very articulate without worrying about rim shots. What a fantastic instrument!
Very cool! i have a premier jazz kit that I use a lot as well. They sound and perform consistently at a super high level. I love them and will post pics of them soon. (Have been using my slingerlands for the past 2 months of gigs)
