    I went rack a while back, got a decent sized kit - 3 up 2 down plus 18" floor tom on the left, quite a few cymbals.

    Thought long and hard about the right kind of rack so I have what I want where I...

    My SRX is a Fusion kit with not only 14" being mounted but the 16" too! I've since put legs on the 16" but the 14" remains mounted (to a Gibraltar stealth rack) using Optimounts.

    Got to play my new UV1s over clear G1s in anger last weekend, really nice open and warm sound. Had a bit of trouble tuning the 14". The 16" and especially the 18" are thunderous!

    Yes they'll be a slight upgrade, superhoops are a bit thicker (2.3mm vs 1.6mm IIRC) so should allow for more consistent tuning. Give them a go and see how they sound!

    Those numbers look over the top to me. When I'm road cycling I'm burning 500-600 calories per hour, now way is drumming anywhere near the same effort as cycling.

    Put the G1 coated on the batter side and get some G1 clears for the reso, Evans G1 = Remo Ambassador, so like TMD says above. That's the setup I have on my Arcadia birch bop kit for big band jazz.

    That listing is wrong, is my opinion. Looking at the Pearl web site there is a configuration RS525WFC/C which comprises:
    22x16
    12x9
    14x14
    16x16
    14x6.5
    Cymbal Stand
    Hi-Hat Stand
    Snare Stand x 2

    Can you post a link to it? Seems mighty odd. Never heard of a 16FT 18" deep. And a 14x5.5 snare is obvs 5.5" deep.

    If you want tone I'd suggest coated heads. A "go to" combination would be G2 coated over G1 clear, but I've heard that G1 coated on the Reso can produce good results. I'll be trying out UV1s on the...
