Condition: 7/10 – At first glance the kit looks fantastic but on closer inspection there are a fair few scratches and dents to the finish throughout, most notably on the 12in tom and bass drum. Other than that this is a wicked kit for the money. Features Remo Powerstroke 4 Clear heads on the tom batter side, Ambassador Coated on the snare, Aquarian Force I on the bass drum. Resonant heads are all the original factory heads – Powerstroke 3 Ebony on the bass drum reso side. See images.

Low-Contact Claws: Tired of your bass drum claws looking like everyone else’s? Try these. – Increase resonance by reducing weight and contact on the counterhoop. Rubber gaskets protect the hoop finish and prevent the claw from rattling during play.
SONIClear™ Tom Suspension: Hate it when you see more of the mount than you do of the shell? Us too. Increases overall resonance by preserving vibration in the shell and heads. Doesn’t touch the tension rods, helping heads stay in tune and making them easy to change.
Memory-Mark Bass Drum Spurs: Ever use a ruler to make them even? Then this is for you. Markings on the spur rods help players recall their settings and insure level set-up. Circular treads on a rounded rubber foot prevent the drum from sliding during play.
Lacquer Sparkle Finish: This lacquered sparkle finish blends fine blue and red flakes that each catch the light at different angles, giving this kit an iridescent quality. Is it red or blue…or purple? You decide.
