I played on Tama, DW, Yamaha, Ludwig, Sonor ... and Pearl!
I have an "all maple shell" of high quality but has a lower projection than the standard session!
I intended more to jazz, funk, world music, soul ... it is certainly warmer, BUT:
My Session Elite is equipped with a double bass drums and five mounted Aquarians Performance II.
A treat, a brilliant and beautiful projection ... This is an excellent drumkit for rock!
Perfect for concerts and rehearsals, this is a drumkit power and precision. The ingestion of kif sounds good in general With two "over-head" for a 58 CC and a beta 52 in the GC is already good!
Some have even told me the favor to my DW (but uh ... shall we say, then do not push yourself qd!)
BRIEF: This is just below the PRO and far (far) before the first price today.
I would say just above the Pearl Vision.
A good buy!

This drumkit is amazing for the price. I use it in the studio for 6 years and it sounds really powerful. SM 58 with the kick drum you get to have depth!
The Snare is magical (the wood deep) and it provides opportunities for its pretty amazing.
I tried many batteries before you buy and its price range I found nothing like that at that time (2000). I tried the Sonor Force 2000, Force 2001 and the Mapex, Yamaha and Tama diffrence but my ear was pretty obvious for a 2000 budget cymbals included.
Even if it is intended to cardboard music (rock, hard, etc. ...), it is trs home in funk, fusion, etc ...
