I use it for 2 years. I also have a Pearl BRX, I also had a Pearl MLX, a Yamaha Manu Katche, and Ludwig.
It is lightweight Birdseye Maple (maple) 10 "x8", 12 "x9", 14 "x14" and 20 "x20" all drums vintage. My snare is a Sonor Designer 14 "x6, 5" Maple.
That fund is what convinced me to buy the drum kit that goes with it. I liked it the first hit.
The complete set for his part, appealed to me at the opening of the cartons. Wood is a sleek, sophisticated and glazing protects the fût.Le tray to attach the arms of toms is very solid and practical, feet wedged easily. The suspension system toms let them "sing" at will (a small knob adjusts the sustain). In short, the hardware is really at the top.
The bass drum provides a warm sound with the matter if necessary, the particular depth gives a bit of sustain and a heavy sound at will (as before powerstroke3 remo skins behind).
The toms are fitted with ambassadors, giving them a function that more jazzy groovy with slamming into rimshot. In the studio, the drums sound really terrible with accuracy and character.
A friend bought a DW almost at the same time as me, and he regrets his purchase, because the SQ2 is nearly two times less expensive and that the level of sound quality, he prefers mine.
A flat or even still 2; plastic parts, I do not know yet how they will grow old in time (they usually dry up and eventually break) hope it will not happen. The second is that there is no need to give the keys to bass drum, so that sometimes storing it in the flys, she goes out of tune.
Warning, if you take a bass drum in 20 "par20" complete well you first on the availability of flys in this size!
Very good value in my opinion and I would do the same choice without hesitation.
Advises, do not be discouraged by the nicknames sellers in Sonor (JB if you hear me) who do not know their stuff and who are not worthy of selling such wonders of Manufactures. There in Germany for small hands that work wonders.
