    Here's a pre-production demo of a song we're going to record this weekend. I've ordered Aquarian Superkick II coated and Aquarian Regulator RSM and I hope they will be satisfied.

    Yes, I've been looking at the SPD-SX but I got the cheaper TM2 and a BT1 trigger instead. And I think I'll get RT30 triggers for kick and snare too.

    I am from Sweden so it took a while for me to get the joke. :-)

    Now I am thinking it would be nice to get a Reference Pure 20" bass drum to go with my MMX toms but I don't have the time to wait....

    Thank you for your suggestions. I'll get some Evans heads for my MMX and bring the 20" Yamaha stage custom birch to the studio. And I guess I should bring some moon gel too.

    Oh, that would save me a lot of money and trouble. :-) But wouldn't a 20" or bigger kick give more well needed punch? And what heads for toms? They sound very muted and punchy.

    Keep looking. :-) I've been searching for a 12x8 or 12x9 MMX in black mist since 2007. I found one 2009 but the guy wouldn't ship to Sweden. Hopefully 10" show up more often.
