You as well Stu. I'll be in De. Maybe you can make it?Yeah, I'm not such a fan of Mapex kits, either, but a nice lacquer finish kit in bebop sizes is always welcome. Those are beautiful drums. I don't generally get calls for jazz gigs (wish I did), but a kit like that is quite nice for all the singer-songwriter and folk/ethnic gigs I do get.
It was great to see you at Lawton's, Bob. Good times!
Can't go wrong with Premier XPK lugs!I know that Mapex drums way too often fall into that "don't get no respect" category, but I just couldn't resist these. They are in very lightly used condition, sound great and the price was unbeatable. Free shipping too.
Meridian Manhattan Bop kits were only offered in maple. Thin shells with sharp bearing edges, great sounding drums with a wide tuning range.I thought there was something familiar about those lugs. I think you're right Elvis.
Not sure if the shells are maple or birch. I think Mapex did both.
