Stunning kit!   :thumbup:   :thumbup:   :thumbup: It's the first time I see an Orion in this finish (looks like transparent walnut to me).

Please remove that towel and let the bass drum breathe!

Those look great! Did you sell your Saturns, or add to the stable?

Thank you! The color is like transparent walnut. The photos don't show it but the color has more red. I play in a musical so without the towel the bass drum was way too loud for that kind of music.

Best wishes
