    Is this a trap?

    For now.

    Until Monsanto begins farming humans. Then the genes will be patentable.

    I like my soop set.

    Easy tuning. Easy set up. Nice and punchy.

    Ahhhh

    focus and punch
    My first pro level kit was Tama Superstar. I have since owned and performed using several Soop kits and one Imperialstar kit. In fact, at one point I had about 30 or so Superstar shells. They are excellent kits for rock/pop. But, Ive seen straight ahead players use them as well (Elvin Jones). Although, I have never been happy with Soops for jazz. Perhaps it is because they are so focused. I like more of a spread out, complex sound for jazz.
    Superstars are 100% birch with rounded edge profiles. The QC at Tama was (and is) excellent. I have never seen a shell that had ply separation, or other markes of poor worksmanship. They have a focusedpunchy sound that helped define the 80s (Neil Pert, Stewart Copland, Stan Lynch, many more). And they record very well, especially when close miced. I currently use a 24x16 BD which requires no muffling yet provides a well defined punch and a short full-bodied resonance. The toms resonate forever! But the tone has sort of a "scooped" sound...so if they are not close miced, they sound extremely punchy.

    AND Im not just saying this because I happen to have a set of Soops for sale (see ad in classifieds). I stand behind its sound 100%.

    Floor toms take up a lot of spac e for the amount of time they get hit.

    Going with "905" would've been so in-keeping with my impression of you. Color me ever-so-slightly disappointed.
