    Hi,
    I have a mc set that I am selling and will be replacing it with......... yep.
    Vintage mc's, do you have the wood hoops?
    I saw that on a set of vmc's and I was knocked out.
    Really lovely to look at.
    Wish me luck.

      Wood hoops only on my Snare.
      Killer sound.
      a bit of ringing though.
      Mine is a jazz set
      and yours????

        JoJo,
        I am going to order them as soon as my turquoise set sells(3 weeks from now)
        I am really stepping down in size but I want a set that is in between the 2 sets I have been using for the past few years.

        My MC's are 8,10,12,14 &16 and a 22x16 kick.
        14x6.
        Nice killer drums, but........ heavy and loud, I haven't used the 16 in 3 years.
        The 8 is nice but....... how much do I need that many toms?

        I have been using a Remo mastertouch set with a 10, 12 and 14 floor tom, 18x14 kick.
        Nice little set and the toms sound great but the kick sucks.
        The hardware sucks, and the wrap finish is ok, but.. I love to have a stunner set. It makes me want to play.

        I am ordering a 10,12 and 14 floor, with a 20 kick. I figured I would split the difference.
        Wood hoops on all the drums, and vintage finish of course.
        I cannot wait to get them.
        How long did it take for your finish to mature?

        Thanks,
        Jeff

          Hmmmmmmmmm, I may look at the absolute vintage.........less weight, lower fundamental note and a bit less money.
          My mc's are heavy.
          Any thoughts?

                  Jojo,
                  Ordering my set wednesday.
                  I was going to keep my MC snare but the kid who bought the set found he needed a pro level snare so.....
                  Then I came acroos a 13x6.5 Spirit snare made from Ironwood and carved from a log , no seam at all. MINE.
                  So now I am ordering a 18x20 MCA in vintage finish and 7.5x10, and 8x12 and 14x14 floor.
                  Cases and then wood hoops for all.
                  I can't wait.
                  I am going to take some photos during the curing process. should be fun to document the changes.
                  Jeff/acid

                    I have some pinkish toms in my living room....hahaha.
                    Bass drum has started to turn and the floor tom is just starting.
                    The stock heads blow, and my cases are a week behind , but what the hell....just be less pink when I do take them out.

                      I spoke with Dave ksyicki, or something at Yamaha support.
                      He knows about this site !

                      Anyway, I have to return my 10" tom as it is too dark some cuts os maple respond differently than others and he was very nice and is shipping a new one this week.

                      The set sounds amazing and looks fantastic.
                      I just put the vintage hoops on all the toms and think they are the bomb.
                      Still changing color and the tone is supposed to change too in time.
                      Heads tho I am not a big Remo fan are coated emperors.

                      Killer set.
