Damn, that’s really nice, and all for a very nice price (and your time and elbow grease). Definitely worth the time and patience.

I got a good set for free, but that was just luck. It’s amazing that you’re finding great parts of all the same brand, I think that’s going to be a really great kit when you’re done.

so, update. i've now had a chance to play this. just jamming with a friend. the snare can cut through her very heavy mid/treble guitar. the hihats sound pretty trashy but in a kinda good way. the floor tom is very lively and ive stuck some moon gel on them. i'm still not sure if i like the sound of the head on the bottom or not. the kick is very aggressive when you play hard but can really calm down when you play with a softer beater or play lighter. the crash is pretty good. if you've ever heard the cough - the black eyes. it's kinda that sound.
