    In fact, since that kit needs some TLC anyway, why not nip down to the local carpenter's store and pick up some exotic veneer? I'd bet if you wrap that kit in some fance wood and clear lacquer it nicely, you could trick most people (barring the drum nerds here that can spot an Export by year just by looking at lugs, spurs and brackets) into believing it's a high-end custom kit. And they'd probably swear up and down that it sounds its purported high price's worth, too.
    I actually detuned all the toms last night after watching Rob "Beatdown" Brown's video on "flat tuning" on youtube, it's the most basic simplest approach and I'll be damned if they don't sound much better to me than they did before, still have a little boom to them but they are much more responsive now and have faster attack which I like. You basically hand tighten all the lugs, then press your hand in the center of the head and go around and tighten the lugs until the skin is just flat in front of the lugs, do this on beater and resonant and then you are done. It works! LOL

            Haha, I get it I get it.........the funny thing is most topics on most subjects have been discussed on the intraweb in one form or another so you could drop those funnies on most threads if you wanted to..........

              That is no surprise at all!
              The best, IMO, tuning for pinstripes is tighten the head to JAW or just above wrinkle, ie, when you're done, there is no wrinkles. A couple of tweaks to make batter and reso the same pitch, and you're good...
