"I have a Yamaha Absolute Maple kit with a mirror wrap. It looks awesome! We were worried the finish would change the sound, but it doesn't--it sounds fantastic. We're very, very happy. I was going to get a birch kit so it would be more like rockets when you hit the drum, but I wanted the mirror finish, which works better on the maple. I love the liveness of the birch, though, and I'll definitely be using a set of those at some point. Both birch and maple sound great for what I'm doing."more
