- Big G Series V Neck Drumkit-
"Pristinely cut maple-shell drums with one- of -a-kind finishes are a hallmark of Gaai's Big G drums. Sonically, the V Neck kit put out a super-clean, warm, pure sound with a pleasing combination of high-end snap and low-end punch."
"The drums sounded larger than they are and excelled in more modern playing styles like electronica, funk, fusion and contemporary R&B. Top 40 club drummers could also take advance of the kit's huge sound and smaller size for more compact setups…."
