I purchased this kit on a Monday. It arrived Wednesday. My show was Friday. After unboxing the drums I noticed the 12" Tom was a different color. Totally NOT Sam Ash's fault. Pearl did this in the factory. I called Sam Ash up to resolve the issue and they got Pearl on the phone and the next morning at 9am arrived the correct color 12" Tom. These guys are awesome. And I got a ton of compliments on the kit at the show. It sounds as good as my DWs. I LOVE it.
