<br><br>oh yeah and it would be pointless to limit it from '94 to '06, as there's barely 10 drum set lines that came out in this period<br>

I would have to disagree with the worst from Artstar.&nbsp; I would not put Imperialstar or Superstar (originals) on the worst list with out putting the rockstar on there first!!!

it's pointless to compare pro sets to entry-level etc. it's obvious that swingstar is worse than superstar and that supe is worse than a starclassic. i would rather ask questions like.. what's the worst starclassic in history? or what's the worst swingstar.. for me the ugliest one is the swingstar by tama 1995 model.

<P>My way of looking at it is what kits would I actually own or consider purchasing:</P>
<P>1: Granstar (obvious)</P>
<P>2: Artstar 2 or custom</P>
<P>3: New Superstar</P>
<P>4: Starclassic Mirage</P>
<P>5: Starclassic Performers </P>
<P>6: Rockstars of any age</P>
<P>&nbsp;</P>
<P>6&nbsp;I wouldn't spend my money on:</P>
<P>1: Stagestars<BR>2: Swingstars<BR>3: Royalstars<BR>4: Imperialstars<BR>5: Starclassic maples or Bubingas (the hype has totally turned me off these things, plus they all look the same)<BR>6: techstar</P>
<P>Of course, that is all just my opinion which shouldn't matter, and nobody should get mad if their kit is on my "wouldn't buy" list. It is all opinion, people.</P><edited><editID>granstar26</editID><editDate>2006-9-9 9:33:15</editDate></edited>

<br><br>were these made of basswood and had accu-tune hoops? basswood starclassics.. were these sc's any good? cause basswood is comparable to ph mahogany or poplar, as we all should know.<br>
