    Option 1. I have had a Maple, a B/B, a Birch Performer and played the Bubinga Starclassic and they were all up to par and worth it. The Birch and the B/B kits sound really similar to be honest, with the B/B having a tad more low end.

    Okay last question, I promise:

    What's a fair price range for used 6 piece starclassic maple in excellent condition? 22 bass, 14 snare, 10, 12, 14, and 16 toms. Just got access to it today.

    I'm not looking to get a "steal" or lowest price ever. Just a fair deal. If this Maple set doesn't work out, I'll just buy that birch kit for $1000, or pay the $900-1000 for the B/B at the beginning of this thread.

    Thanks to all!

    Here are a few videos I recorded a while back, messing around on my Starclassic Birch kit when I had one. Excuse the goofiness LOL

    If it was birch/bubinga, with all of those drums he was right to not go below $1000. That's more than fair for that kit 10-12-14-16-22...snare, too?

    Birch/Bubinga is great, and Tama has big shoes to fill with Birch/Walnut.

    I sold a B/B kit MIJ in 2012 10-12-16-22 for $750, though I wanted $1000. The guy was hit by superstorm Sandy and his gear was trashed, and he was driving from NJ to pick up my kit, so I cut him some slack.

    At this point, SCM is great, but so is B/B.

    Cool. Yeah I'm fortunate to have access to some good deals.

    Pretty sure I'm grabbing a local maple kit tomorrow. Looking forward to finally getting some drums!
