    Yeah, I put an Evans HDDry and Hazy on the bottom (wanted to try the same heads as my brass to do a fair comparison) and Puresound Customs! I am liking the sound so far! :)

    When I had my DR1 it was so big and heavy it just went into the car sans arms. I'm using an SKB keyboard case for the ICON now... memory locks are your friends!
