Bought @ Drummer's Choice Brampton ON Cananda. I was in the market for a new kit and wanted to scale down in size as well as make the switch from birch to maple . Bought em mainly becasue it was such an excellent deal 3 drums standard depths 10" rack tom 14" floor tom (no legs) 20" kick $1100 cdn. I had heard the kit as used by others and was impressed with the sound for the money.
I like every thing about these drums they sound huge for such a small kit. I blame the 4 ply shells, they really sing. The comment I get most often bout these drums is how big a loud they sound. This prasie comes frm fellow drummers fellow musicians and non musicians alike. The main thing I relly like about this kit is it's ability to cut and it's dynamic capabitlities. A bass player I play with borrowed my kit for a session with a side project and his big comment was that he now knew what the difference was between my kit and a lower end model. That difference was just how sensitive these drums were - "You barely have to hit them" was his comment to me.
I really can't say anything bad about these drums. The only thing I don't like is that the finish is inconsistent because the bass drum was used and subsequently yellowed/faded. That's purely an asthetic consideration that I wasn't too concerned about because of the good deal I was getting.
I hope I get this right I beleive that are 4 plies of 1mm maple with reinforcing rings. They make use of Pearls ISS mounting system that clamps onto the rim of the drum. Works fine for what I need.
Not to turn this int oa big promo for Pearl but they are a very good drum for your dollar. All the high end DW, Pork Pie, Noble Cooley , Gretsch et al sound excellent but are VERY expensive. These Drums sound great in the studio and project live.
I use it for 4 months and I can say that the drums have a purpose in Saddle incredible projection.
Before using this drumkit, I have a tama SwingStar jou, a pearl export, and a Yamaha Stage custom.Le price mmx remains trs levmais if you want to be qualitil to pay the price.
Finally, I think the mmx has nothing to envy to dw or other orange county drum.
