    I was thinking about that, but Iím really liking the coated reso heads at the moment. But that may change in the future.

    So that red burst kit in the background is the old maple Sessions?
    Yea, the cranberry fade is the old sessions. Served me well for the past 15 years.

    Damn, thatís a sick finish!!

    I like your toms disposition in front of the snare.
    Thanks man, itís quite comfortable for my tastes.

    Can you tell us some about those floor toms and system?

    Thanks!
    Itís basically a band with springs that attaches to the tension screws at four spots. Nothing touches the drums themselves and it really allows the drums to resonate. I personally love it as I prefer my floor toms with kegs instead of racked.

    Enjoy playing your new kit! You have a great setup. I have been impressed with the wide tuning range of the 8x7 Reference tom.

    Playing around with the new snares, really loving the Reference Brass and DW. Changed the heads to the regular clear emperors, and I like the sound better than the purple versions. Didn't think it would make much difference, but the sound change is clear to my ear.

    It’d get my vote, that’s for sure. I haven’t seen anything as impressive since Matt’s Masterworks with matching pedal inlays (I still want an explanation on how that was done).

    I never really realized how HUGE the DW Direct drive pedals were. There isnít any room for anything else down there. Awesome kit though. Gorgeous!
