Are you a fan of birch over maple? I got birch because

A) I can tune them nice & open but still get that nice tight focused sound i love with no dampening

B) There 200 odd cheaper than the maple.

C) most people use maple over birch & i like doing what most people don't. That said birch is becoming more popular again i believe. Not that will make be go to maple lol
I really do love the sound of them. I like the more focused sounds. I will (hopefully) be doing some recording with this kit soon and will put them up. The price was key too. I havent' played on many maple kits, but I just love the sound of this birch kit.
