Absolutely a work of art and the SOUND!!! Just a killer crack backbeat snare. Gary has gone off the chain with this series!

Probably depends on what kind music you play. My take? I've owned 29 kits and Star Walnuts are my favorite. Are they worth the cash?.... I bought mine just before the price increase earlier this year. They've gone up $1200 since then. That said, I still think they represent very good value in the high end. Everything else has gone up too. Value wise I'd equate them to a new 4 pc Birch SQ2 kit (22-10-12-16) in a high gloss lacquer sparkle or RAL finish. Keep your eye out for pre-owned set maybe?Wow!

And….I’m also kinda drooling over those beautiful Star Walnuts in that red chestnut finish, looks amazing. Worth the cash? I’m still thinking about eventually getting a set.
