GOOD GOSH I do love that kit!!!! Nice my man, you did good on this project. Looking forward to the 13" to finish it out!
Thanks, me too! I've ordered an 8 track recorder and some mics as well. I'm gonna try my hand at recording my drums which I've never done. So I'll have some sound files in the future to be able to post here.

Just got an email from Soundpure that my 13" tom is on the way. Perfect timing along with the INDE rail tom mount that has shipped today as well. That 13" was the last piece missing. 1 month turnaround time from Ludwig which is excellent. Initial quoted turnaround time was 2 months! For those that have never bought from Soundpure, they are excellent and Barry is a great guy. Super helpful and all questions answered immediately. Highly recommended!

Yep, last month! I bought the 4 piece classic maple kit from Ludwig which they had in stock. And then I added the 8" tom & 14" floor tom which Sweetwater had in stock. And ordered the 13" tom from Ludwig through Soundpure which they had to build. All brand new!

That's exciting. The 13x9 CM I just received sounds incredible.
Awesome! I love 13's! I had one on my last kit and it was my favorite and most versatile tom. I can only imagine that the classic maple 13" will sound thunderous!

I'm sure the Sonor kit is a fine set, but at that price point I take it they are made at the Mapex factory? I would go with the Pearls.

I ended up buying Ludwig classic maples last month. I started this thread at the beginning of May. Thanks anyways!

That's funny!
I think first I have to learn to record before I get to making videos! And that part, I haven't even been able to start because of time restraints. I've got boxes sitting everywhere waiting to be put together. Look:

13" tom finally arrived today along with the INDE double rail mount. Luck has it that they both arrived together. Now all the pieces are here! Can't wait to play that tom. I tapped it a few times and it's resonance is never ending.
I'll be taking my time and setting the mount and toms this weekend since I'll be off from work.

Hmm, I answered this question on Friday assuming it was a genuine question since I never saw you post anything on this thread before. Now I'm not so sure after just reading the joke reactions from others.
