How long have you owned the set?

Cheers
I'll give it a try when the rubber band dries up.

I've now owned the set for exactly 24 hours!

Hey Joe!

Pretty stoked about this one. Had some unused gear on consignment up at Bentley's and traded it in for this set.

Great find
I believe you will find they will tune up to whatever sound you might be looking for.
Enjoy

Thanks y'all!

I'm really looking forward to getting this set into some live music, even though I know it'll be awhile before that happens. The tones are so sweet on these drums. I get the hype, and the hype is no joke. Amazing build quality and sound. Happy camper here!

Congrats! My Camco blue sparkle kit is my favorite to gig with. They sound so good that they almost play themselves!
