Can I play any style with this kit?
This drum kit sounds amazing and can be used for any style.  The big sound can seem like its gear towards arena rock, but that’s just not the case.  I’ve seen jazz/funk drummers make this kit sing!
I got turned on to this drum kit by the infamous Adam Deitch.  For those that don’t know Adam Deitch, he is the drummer for the funk band Lettuce and has toured with Average White Band, John Scofield, Chaka Kahn and a ton of other musicians.

The first time I saw Adam Deitch play the drums with Lettuce, the first thing I noticed was how the tone of his drumset drove the music so well.  Whether they were driving funky thick grooves or getting jazzy and out, the drums consistently stood out to me.
