Written on: 28/01/2010 by johnlezana (1 review written)

i bought my signia kit about 14 years ago 20"kick and toms are 12" 14" and 16" all hung independently on pearls hoop systems and the bass drum is undrilled , meaning no tom tom post . cherry wood . I would never sell my kit , it sounds amazing and looks amazing too . i have recorded in the studio many times with this kit and it sounds ausome . I have tried many heads on this kit and after years of experimenting i think i have finally found the heads to give me the sound that has been in my head . top heads evans G2 coated on all toms and bottom heads evans G1 coated , bass drum powerstroke 3 of course and an evans skinny pillow thing they sell just touching the batter head . If any one out there has a 10" signia tom in cherrywood in good condition that they would like to sell please contact me . Im not holding out much hope . john.lezana1@btinternet.com

Signia7's Response to johnlezana's Review

Hi John, I liked your post. I bought a 7pc. Premier Signia back in 1993 from a Chicago Guitar Center. The only stipulation I asked for was NOT to put a tom-mount hole in the bass drum (as I bought a rack to accommodate the toms). When I got the bass drum with the hole, I was LIVID. The Guitar Center dude really didn't care, and when I threatened to take it back he started he told me I was on my own. I kept it and I'm still very happy with it. Considering how heavy the drums are, I might still try to get that mount but the drums rarely leave the house, anyways. I was just curious--How were you able to get a Signia bass drum without the drilled hole? Did you fly out to the shop? What's the deal, baby!

the way i got my bass drum with out a mount hole in it was when i ordered it from music shop it had to be made at the premier factory so i just told the shop i wanted it without hole and they told the factory (simples) cause i wanted to hang all the toms off the pearl mounting systems . this was all back in the early 90's . i still get comments on my kit as to how great it looks and sounds . at 1 gig someone asked me if it was new , i laughed and said no i just strip it down every 2 years to clean everything and i look after it .

The Signia Marquis came with a virgin bass drum...the Signia series did not...they all had tom mounts.
