Have been playing my Renown Maple for about 18 months and gigging regularly 2-3 times a week.

The Blue Burst finish is fantastic. It generally gets commented on along with the drum sound.

Sizes; 22x18, 10x8, 12x10, 14x14, 14x5 snare.

As we play classic rock covers, including a some by The Who and Deep Purple, it takes a pounding. I have yet to have any of the drums go out of tune while playing and that can be up to three hours some nights.

The only change I have made is to use pinstripes on the toms and a heavy reverse dot on the snare which, by the way, has one hell of a crack to it even though I don't generally use rimshots. It's still sensitive enough to cut ghost notes through.

Bought my kit at Sound Attak in Colchester, UK.

Cost £1,350

I got it a a reduced price as it was ex-display.

Why did I buy this kit? Easy, the sound!

The sound! The sound! The sound!

Oh yes, and the build quality.

N/A

Solid as a rock.

I'd recommend this kit to anyone no matter what style of music played.

I don't think it can be betterd for the money or, for that matter, a gret deal more.
