- How long you use it?
I use this drumkit since 2009, mainly live but also in home studio. This is version 22 ", 10", 12 "and 14" x14 "Pole. I changed the excellent snare for another that suited me better. I did rock, pop, jazz and "variety" with.

- What is so special that you love the most, least?
I love the warm, round of this drumkit. The drums can withstand large adjustments without flinching. My bass drum set was a bit hard to find.
The drums are extremely well made: the wood is solid, varnish and fittings are solid.

I do not like the hardware a bit outdated (the Renown was uploaded in the meantime) and sometimes not very well thought out, as the boom of tom toms, or bracket to break kneecaps ... At your fingers! > <

- Did you tried many other models before buying it?
In fact, I was looking for a model around 1000 €. By nine, I had tested Pearl Vision, Tama Superstar, Yamaha Tour Custom, Gretsch Catalina. In time, Pearl Master Custom Classic and Premier Series.

- How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Aside from some annoying delays technology (I replaced a lot of hardware that I found outdated or broken), it is the sound that convinced me and with whom I enjoy more. With the upgraded hardware, the new price does not bother me more. I am thinking also to buy two floor toms 14 "and 16" in the same range.
A good product, reliable and that sounds :)
