Nice, make sure the fist thing you do (even before you play) is to post pictures. The first thing after you play would be posting a video!

Btw, why "batera" as your nick? Are you brazilian?

I agree with Tom Sawyer, pics first, then play maybe 10 minutes and then post a video. You have to make pictures of every angle, with a good camera ofcourse ;-).

Have fun!

Hey Batera, I lashed out and bought the starclassic b/b GCS. They are amazing drums , the more I play them the better they sound. The snare is also fantastic. I'm so glad I got these drums . Believe me you will not be disappointed. Welcome to the Tama family. Have fun dude.

Be sure to inspect all the bearing edges thoroughly. I had one of those kits, and the bass drum edges were awful. I'm sure it was just a one-time thing, but you never know.

Pics??? As they say, without pics, you don't own the drums. : ) But seriously, I think you will be very happy with this kit. I've heard nothing but good things about them.

What a BEAUTIFUL kit.

I actually played on one at GC in that color. Man, it looks so great in person. This kit sounds amazing as well.

Congratulations!!!!

Wow! What a finish. It's lava glass glitter isn't it? What do you think of how they sound? The interiors are just gorgeous. Replace those stock heads ASAP!!!

yes its the lava glass.. and im in love with the sound. Speacially the 16" floor tom and bass drum... In the future i'll see if i can get a 14" FT. I wont change the heads right away.. since the heads on it are the evans G2 and G1. Which are not that bad. I'll put some evans ec2 coated like i have on my pdps later.

And thanks, I'll put up a vid as soon as possible.

What a nice sparkle!
Good choice on the kit, those B/B kits have got a very nice sound and are well built!

How do you like the sound of that Bass drum, must be very boomy. =)

I love it.. its the sound i was looking for. The only thing i need for this kit is to order a 14" bass drum... The 16" one sounds amazing.. but i want to have two up two down... 10 12 16 is kind of weird for me.

Yeah but then you have to use hex keys and it takes a little time... When I switch the heads i'll move the hoops so that the 12" tom will look good set up on the right... I miss a 14" though.. should be getting one asap
