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.

And the look isn't the best part..... The sound and feel to them.... Well forgive me if I'm still drooling!

egads, that's sweet.

I am sure they sound as amazing as they look!

 

one minor suggestion: on your tom mounts, you might want to look at switching the memory locks for the tom mount on top. That way in case the clamps loosen up, you won't have your toms falling down and marring up your gorgeous finish on the bass drum. You will kick yourself hard the day this accident happens.

Man, if I had a set that pretty I'd get nothing done.  I would just sit and stare until I fell asleep every day and then I'd get up and stare some more.  :bdown:  That snare is the perfect compliment to that kit as well!

Hey guys - thanks for your kind words! Bonzo, I almost had to kick the girlfriend out of bed when I brought it home haha ;-)

 

Yeah I'm delighted with the snare. As far as I could tell, it was a very rare release in Europe to very little chat about it - I picked it up for £200 and as far as I'm concerned it's an absolute bargain. I chucked a PureSound blaster on there and it's a beast!
