    I have intentionally waited to listed to this at work because there I have some great speakers on my desktop, including a sub and stereo mids & highs.

    Bottom line..............both kits sound very good and not enough difference in the quality about which to comment.
    Would still love to test-drive both for the ultimate comparison.

    I must agree with you. Although not as "flashy" as the DW, it's that Gretsch sound that makes me think so too.

    I'll bring both up to Napa next time you're in my neck of the woods

    Judging from the turnout at our last gig, my band plays for phantom audience members...

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    A pair of wooden dowels, some thin sheets of plastic stretched across hollow wooden cylinders and a few flat, round sheets of pressed cast bronze metal; when one can create this, as far as I'm concerned, drummers are musicians.
