  1. I've heard mostly positive things, but would like to poll the opinions of
    "the gang" @ R.M.M.P.

  2. Great drums.......I own a kit, but Kevin Pinson has a LONG way to go at
    business practices.
    A close friend of mine has been waiting over a year and a half for a kit, he
    finally got a kit but it's so messed up and Kevin had the balls to send it
    thinking no big deal. Evan, another fellow RMMP drummer got a kit from Kevin
    as well and had a horrible experience too.

    got a snare from bearing edge that was supposedly brand new (in "mint"
    condition)...it was not even CLOSE. it also had a veneer "patch" on oneof
    the hoops with very obvious extra seams. the drum did sound good though. i
    think you have to SEE what your getting from Bearing Edge. once you've
    inspected it, then you're safe.

    My take: beautiful aesthetically. Really visually stunning. But, I would
    never want to take them out of the house for fear of gig dings. I haven't
    played them, but aren't they a Keller maple shell plus a veneer? Impractical
    to me, but maybe in 15 or 20 years when I'm old like the rest of the geezers
    here. ;-)

    I have also heard numerous stories of bad business practice, slow/no ship
    time, incorrect orders, etc. That means I'm never ordering a new kit from
    Kevin. I would only buy from store stock or used. That's something to
    consider as a DSG (drum shop guy).
    Good luck,
    -DR
  5. what does Keller shell with veneer have to do with it? Spaun is a Keller
    with a veneer or lacquer. So are allot of other specialty companies.

    he said something like "I haven't played them but aren't they a Keller
    shell plus veneer?"; which, paraphrased, means: "I haven't played them,
    but I know what to expect, since I've played similar kits before"

    and Spaun doesn't use veneers (unless a plastic wrap is a veneer :),
    they just finish with satin/lacquer coatings or wraps.

    I'm just saying that they're not exotic shells, which was my first
    impression.
