I bought a flats lite kit 5 years ago, and it's still going strong! I don't use the original snare, and use a 13x4 Pearl which fits the Flats carry bag no problem. I have two kits, the second being Remo Acousticon which has a BIG sound, but almost invariably I use the flats because of its portability and GREAT small group sound. But I can also use it with a big band too, and along with my priceless Paiste Formula 602 cymbals, (collected over many years), the kit sounds sweet. In any case MOST drummers are too damn loud anyway, but the flats perform incredibly well.
Don't hesitate, GET SOME. (I can even do gigs in my wife's Cayman!)
