    Default New drum kit ordered im so excited

    Just ordered my brand new Mapex Meridian Birch - in transparent walnut

    im so excited, it was 675 what a bargain,

    sizes are 20x22, 10x7, 12x9, 14x14, 16x16, 14x5.5

    the bass is a freakin cannon haha, and those shallow toms are so sweet, been pondering over what kit to get for over a year now and it came to a choice between the maple and birch of this kit, maple was my first choice but they only had one colour left (midnight steel) really not for me haha, so i tried out the birch they had in the store and i was amazed by how sweet is sounded, most birch kits i say most cos not all, are just all attack and no musicality but this one is so nice, a little more explosive than the maple but it still holds the nice musical tones that i want t hear from a kit, if anyone is in the market for a kit, then this is the way to go im i cant wait o pick it up

    Totally understand the excitement of getting a new kit, you will love the shorter toms as those are the same size of my new kit along with 13X10 and I had the floor tom built as 16X14.
    Enjoy to the max!

    A really great choice you made, I think you're really going to wind up liking it. Transparent walnut sounds quite tasty, can't wait to see some setup pics.

    i've had one of them before along with the m-birch and pro m, current kit is a Saturn, you can't go wrong with Mapex in my opinion.

    This is one of the reason we want to see pics cause anyone can say they got this or will get that but pics shows it. What is also confusing is that Tyger posted at 2: 09 that he ordered it and then at 2:20 he is ranting that he just got it now what is the truth here just wondering.

    Maybe he meant "got it" like he ordered it or put money on it.

    I mean, I ordered a DW but I say i GOT a dw... even though I dont have it yet.

    Don't hassle him, he has no malicious intent. Probably thought he would have the kit and posted in advance not knowing he wouldn't able to pick it up until later. Simple misunderstanding, nothing to give someone a hard time for, I think. I'd be excited to post about a new kit too.

    That said, I look forward to seeing that finish. Sounds sweet.
