Today's video features a Mapex Saturn III kit in bop sizes!

This kit has been outfitted with Evans Strata heads on the batters and Evans Clear G1s on the resos.

Configuration:
18 x 14 Bass Drum
12 x 8 Rack Tom
14 x 14 Floor Tom
5.5 x 14 Snare Drum

Cymbals: 22" Ottaviano Ride (2385g), 21" Istanbul Mehmet Nostalgia 50s Sizzle Ride (2081g), 14" Zildjian 60s Avedis Hi Hats (844g top/1112g bottom)

Mics: We used two AKG C214 microphones as overheads, a Shure SM57 on the snare, and an AKG d112 on the bass drum.

Hope you enjoy!

Don't hear much bass drum.

That's the important metric to me. Toms are toms as is the snare.
