    I've been seeing these kits crop up and heard they sounded good, and the
    prices were more than reasonable (600-800) for shell packs. I dig some of
    the finishes too. Has anyone had a chance to try these out? How do they
    sound? I am looking for a cool looking cheap gigging kit without using
    vintage. My main concern is sound and feel within that price range. Thanks
    in advance.

    Then get your wallet out Drumbelly! These kits come from Brazil.
    (the source of all REALLY cheapo percussion stuff... go take
    a peer at www.BrazilianPercussion.com! DIG. NO import duty on
    percussion gear from Brazil! Shipping typically starts at $30 though,
    which means it's a better bargain if you buy more stuff!!! :)

    They are KILLER drumsets! I almost bought one myself had not the
    guy who was there first been gleefully scarfing it up. They
    are made out some kind of Brazilian rainforest tropical wood
    and the shells are positively perfection! The sound is simply
    without equal in a kit of equal price. The colors are very nice
    too. Brazilian bright, but not hideous. The only downside is
    that Brazilians are masters at making "instruments" out of some
    bent pieces of tin can. So you'll find the lugs sort of chintzy
    plastic deals and the metal is a tad less than optimum. Yeah,
    shell pack is the way to go.

    Yep, CPP has 'em. Yeah, they are monster sounding drums.
    and they are also priced right! Also you'll find that
    because of the wood they sound nothing like all the standard
    kits out there which is a major plus in my book. Check 'em
    out and keep your Visa handy! I predict, you'll buy!

    bapeva wood, whatever that means.
    These kits do looks pretty nice, though.
    AJ's sells them at a killer price.

    I didn't notice them when I was there Saturday last.

    Prolly because they get a kit in and BAM it's sold!
    The last one I saw there was sitting among that
    row of drumsets to your right as you walk in the
    door. But come to think of it I don't remember
    seeing it lately. It wasn't as nice as the brightly
    colored one they got first that I almost bought.
    It really looked good. Sort of a rusty-orange fade.
    The guy who bought it and I just kept beating on the
    toms going DAMN! I think the last one they got in
    was sort of non-descript black or some dark shade.
