    ^^I failed to mention that I play this kit most of the time and it's set up right now. I play a 1 up, 2 down with 16" & 18" floor toms. The 8 ply bass drum and floor toms has ruined me. I'll have to get a Masterworks at some point and I'll guartantee you that the bass drum and floors will be 8 ply drums!!

    Thanks ntime!

    I'm with you there. They're great for gigging, I'm not afraid of hurting them and as the recording shows I think they sound great! Not to mention I spent less than $1000 on them

    That's one big snare reverb. Sounds good. Yeah, Vision drums don't sound mid-level at all, you couldn't guess by the clip that they are.
    Hehe I was glad it was there once the guitars got laid on top

    Thanks man! YouTube definitely toned down the intensity, but hearing them on the PA after we finished that take was incredible. The bass drum just slammed into your chest

    And here's some long-awaited outdoor pictures of Black Sparkle for everybody. These are the three drums you can hear on the recording; 24x18, 13x10, & 16x16.






    More outdoor shots are posted in my kit's main thread here:

    Haha thanks!

    I think they sound amazing for what are supposed to be mid-range drums.

    started a topic The VSX under mics!

    The VSX under mics!

    Fresh off the board boys and girls (well, as of Tuesday it was, anyway).

    My band recorded another demo the other day for our song "Plunge" and here are the naked drum tracks for your enjoyment so you hear how these drums sound under the mics...even if they aren't exactly the most high quality.

    As with anything YouTube or on the Internet in general, it's probably best you use headphones or nice speakers, but in my opinion they sound great even on my MacBook's puny little noisemakers.

    More info in the video!
