    So, if I’ve played my cards right, I might actually be getting 2 kits, a B/B with a full set of hardware as well as a SC maple. Stay tuned.

    I've played other 16x14 toms that I felt sounded fatter, but 16x16 definitely is the winning size for me. I briefly looked for a MCX or BCX but couldn't find one that did it for me.

    Good to know, I appreciate the heads up! These are tuned super low and I don’t think they’ll ever get away from that.
