Value For Money : Excellent
I have a maple renown since December 2009.
version 10 +12 +14 (tb) 16 22 + cc14x5 burst in autumn
I love this drumkit is safe! I hesitated a peral pcs and possibly Mapex but I opted for a drumkit that should have character with its faults and qualities rather than its happening everywhere ...
I like:
following skins can all play with, I tried the G2, G2 coated, coated Evans G1 (G2 less strained than the G1) and finally I kept the G1 because they do reveal the character of this kit in his round . the kick sending good bass, toms sing!
weak point is the snare that could have been more successful (see bof very trigger too light), once properly adjusted (Evans G1 above) changed the timbre (pearl) I set so sharp and funky as I have another bronze 14x6.5 Gretsch powerful.
I had few kits (jazzette, export, Tama Starclassic) and tried the yam custom absolute, oak, first apkludwig Vistalite ...
the price I got was very good, I ordered a 16-tom "in addition to the basic kit merge all for 1600 euro.
I do not regret that choice, there mùieux I realize this but my drumkit Paut make everything a drummer expects his next instrument settings, so for me it represents the best compromise investment / quality / sonic possibilities. more Gretsch brand represents just one alternative in the current stuff ... and that's not bad!
I recommend this drumkit to any drummer demanding an end to the settings looking for a unique sound, a fingerprint, without falling into the drumkit too typed and assigned to one task ...
Very good level for this kit, the quality without breaking the bank ...
