I've Had 26 Kits Since 2005

by William

I could die tomorrow so why not buy drums today. I've had most brands, Gretsch USA Maple, Yamaha Phoenix, Pearl Reference, many others.

I have 2 Tama Bubinga Elite kits in quilted mocha burst. Best sounding overall. The Phoenix is good but the 2 piece lugs can produce a metallic buzz (did for me) that I could not get rid of for 2 years.

When I did, I sold them as fast as I could. The colors are atrocious in my opinion as well.

I like the Gretsch but the Tama Bubinga Elite has better tone. Keep on Drummin!!
