    Did the coated G2's take time to break in or something?

    I tried the Emperor X on my snare briefly but it was a bit *too* heavy. For those of you who hit hard and want a "thud" it might work, but the typical coated emperor is better IMHO.

    Gotdam, Neko's Shimmer of Oz thread is a heck of a trip down nostalgia lane.
