    The new 360 Evans heads don't work on my drums at all. I went to Remo with Clear Emperors on the batters an Clear Ambassadors on the resos amd they sound tremendous.

    Well, I am still using Remo Emperors for the batter heads and Ambassadors for the resos on my Forum 10" and 12" toms. The heads themselves sound great on this kit but after playing for a short while, 15 or 20 minutes, they are out of tune and have strange annoying overtones. I just got the drums back from Precision Drum Company and got the bearing edges redone, thinking at least now I would know that is not the problem. I really have to get extremely picky about how I tune the drums and they sound fine with earplugs in, but when I play, like I stated, for a short while the toms sound bad. Now, I know that a lower end kit is not going to sound like a higher end kit, but I guess I have to finally realize that I will have to get a better set of drums to sound better.

    Be sure to check your lugs and tension rods and see if any have loosened.

    Yes, the lugs have just been put back on and the tension rods are probably loosening when playing. I know I'm expecting too much from this kit, but in reality, it does sound pretty respectable.

    Maybe experiment with some Teflon tape or
    blue loctite on the tension rods. Post some pictures
    of your rig.

    I did replace the Forum snare with a Pearl Black Brass Sensitone 14x5 snare as seen in the picture. I will try the Loctite.

    Sweet kit. Looks great. Remember a little loctite
    goes a long way.
