The Maple :
One of the best i have ever used. Easy to adjust and the sound is quite deep. I really like it.
Very satisfied with this kit. The sound is very versatile. So I can easily play it with different kind of musics. The sound is dry for me to play jazz and also compatible to play hiphop with this or whenever i want to plat vintage sound music, it’s suits well.
