What did you end up purchasing?

I hope your knee injury has healed and you are back at your kit!

Mapex? Tama? Yamaha? DW? Pearl? Sonor? etc.

People can tell you what THEY like, but no one can tell you what you like. That's because only YOU know what flat ass rocks your world.

Play whatever inspires you to perform your best.

In my opinion, you shouldn't get to concerned with the "brand name"...

Both companies have great selections of the drum kits, hardware and parts, and if you are NOT looking for something particular (like custom tom sizes or a special color/finish), you will not make a mistake getting either one of them...

My best advise is to figure out the set configuration you want. - How many toms do you want, what kind of snare do you want, kicks, hardware, etc... - Than when you know exactly what do you want, get to your local drum store and look around for the best deal you can get! And assuming you are purchasing a kit from 1 of the top 5 manufacturers in the world (like tama or mapex) you will get a great kit no matter which company you will finally end up with.

Hope that helps.
