Hey guys new poster here. I haven't got pictures yet but will have Monday but I'm super stoked to announce after 2 years of scrimping, I've finally joined the Saturn club (I've heard you're a friendly bunch haha) and I'm utterly thrilled to have brought home my new babies today!

 

Got a Mapex Saturn IV, Deep Water Ash Burl finish (I've attached the stock photos below)...

 

Honestly can't wait to test these out! The sexiest looking kit I've EVER seen!

 

For those interested, my set up is...

 

10" x 9"

12" x 10"

14" x 14"

22" x 20"

 

and I've got a Black Panther in the limited edition Aztec finish they were doing a while back...

 

The worst part is that now I have to wait until Monday (due to noise complaints......  :angrily: ) to play them!!  :runaway:

Cheers guys! As soon as I've got my full set up with all the cymbals and so forth added I'll take a few pics and get them up here. The guys in my local store were purring like kittens. I was purring like a lion in mating season haha.
