Adire has a new line of stuff coming out. The Brahma is being cut back on in some areas but they say it willl still sound the same as previous models. I don't know what is different about the Shivas or even if they are changing them. I was gonna get a Brahma until I found this out. I am getting an RE X.X.X now. The Brahmas are still good but you can't get ahold of them yet because the new series is still being phased in so it could be a while.
