Thanks for the response. I have a few Recording Customs over the years and found them to be very musical. I had a Cobalt Blue - 24, 10, 12, 13, 16 all hanging toms; Cherrywood - 22, 10,12,14; and a Piano Black 24, 13, 14, 16 with super deep rack toms. I liked all of them, but the depth of the black kit made positioning tough with the 24" kick.

I ran G2's over G1's on the Blue and Cherry kits; and Evan's single ply 10 mil heads I believe on the black kit. I am NOT a pinstripe guy as I just don't like the stick feel, but the ones I have playd with them sounded ok, but again they just weren't for me.

I have yet to own a Stage Custom, but everytime I see one it looks like it is well put together.
Did you have your RC's tuned up or down? Mine are low to mid where I tend to like everything. I think the SCs are as well built as anything. They tune from high up to way low. Impressive. The price is unbelievable for what you get. It's money well spent if you are thinking about one.

Didn't know this thread existed. I own a 1981 Tour Series concert tom kit 8/10/12/13/16/18/24 and 1980 9000D pre-recording series 5 pc. std sized kit.

Gorgeous. These might be on the horizon at some point. Is that the walnut (red-ish) finish? Looks great. Actually, that might even be the prettiest finish I’ve seen for those.
Yes. Classic Walnut.
10, 12, 14, 20, matching snare and I have a component 18 as well to bop.
The Hybrids are a terrific build, great huge open warm sound but with an aggressive attack. Highly recommend.

Today I brought home a Stage Custom Bop kit. I had it at a rehearsal space and it was used for lessons. Changed the heads to coated Amb. on both sides and BOOM! A wonderful sound for so called 'budget' drums. Highly recommended.

I had band rehearsal for the first time since getting my RCs last night and the boys saw the RCs for the first time and agreed they were eye popping.

I have to admit they sound better with a band than by themselves. I'm starting to really like them now. Ya can't have'm.
