    Thanks, Rob
    if anything I think the optimounts are what adds the weight. I am pondering putting Ludwig atlas mounts on mine

    I'm having a similar issue with my new W/F kit - the stock 2-ply pinstripes really deaden the sound. I'm using the drums mostly for straight ahead jazz, and what to get the toms to sing and really resonate. I had a W/F kit in the 70's and liked the tone. I would like a coated head (ambassador weight) but want to stay clear of REMO. Has any one tried Evans UV1 heads on these shells? Or, some other vendor like Aquarian?

    I've been using some White Suede Emperors on my toms and they sound great.

    For the kick, it's been pretty standard for me –*coated Powerstroke 3 on batter side with a coated Emperor Bass on the reso with a felt strip.

    Here's a video of that setup mic'ed up –*https://www.facebook.com/drumdigest/...3636086605059/

    I just got mine but Clear Emperors have them singing really well. I’m loving the tone!
