    Sorry, didn't mean to suggest harming the drum. Perhaps experiment and maybe tune a little higher than what you normally do, and see how that sounds.

    snare sound is close, but I still hear a crisp snare response. In my opinion, AVH didn't have that; the snare almost sounded like a cranked up tom sometimes. Cool that you are going to try the...

    I believe the key is the bottom head. Instead of a "snare side ambassador" try a clear ambassador that you would use on the bottom of a tom. I've done this, and it works. The thicker bottom head...

    yes it works. No special trigger is required, and any module will suffice. I power mine with a lightweight Behringer iNuke amp in bridge mono mode.

    do you have any video samples of the kit? Do the toms have a "snap" to them? I'm considering an SSC kit for gigging purposes to replace vintage Tama Superstars which have thick birch shells.

    My vintage Tama Superstar 16x16 sounded great, but resonated like crazy. Someone here suggested putting a few "flattened" cotton balls in the drum. Made a big difference.

    If it makes you happy! Does sound good in the video, and you have cool chops. Not sure I would have painted the bearing edges though. Also was surprised to see you painting so close to your truck!

    In the meantime, maybe convert your 18" floor to a bass drum. Get a pair of natural hoops and maybe a lift kit if needed. It's a nice size option to have around, and fun to play for a change.
