    Dale,

    My kid's summer swim team is now canceled here in Ohio. No practices; no meets. Fall season: TBD.

    Community pool doesn't expect it will open until July. If then.

    If you bury the beater when you play bass drum, you'll want it ported, most likely. Even if you never mic it.

    It also changes the sound which you may find more to your liking.

    I'd buy a set (not at that price) just for the unique look and the history. I can't imagine I'd play it much. Kinda like one of those Trixon kits with teardrop bass drum.

    Like JY, I don't use gloves. So what follows is of questionable value:

    I have consistently heard that the Zildjian gloves don't last.

    My problem with the whole 10,000 hours thing, is the quality of the instruction and effort during those 10,000 hours.

    I do think we all hear the same thing differently. No doubt. As to the reason for that and can it be manipulated/corrected for? I am absolutely clueless.
