I know Craviotto has introduced their line of single head toms, but check out the Canopus link!

As long as Evans can keep up with the demand for hydraulic heads - we'll be ok.

Canopus had CT's back at NAMM 2005 - love their stuff, small lugs, well made and pure quality. Their snares wires are great too.

I've been telling everyone for a while, concert toms are cool again! Crush Drums has also introduced them on a few kits. I'd been petitioning Ludwig for a while to get on board with Legacy concert toms - like their classics from the '70s - but Craviotto, Crush and now Canopus have beat 'em to it.

Long live concert toms!

I think I'll reserve my opinion until Dan buys a set and reviews it here. Badapboom!

But seriously, folks... The worst insult you can throw at a winemaker is that his product is "interesting", but I found the sound clip interesting in a nice way. I can see that sound in certain places, but not all the time. This means I am fiscally unable to indulge in this fad. I'm gonna wait until putting duct tape all over the heads comes back.
I hear there's a sale at the hardware store...

Concert toms actually can sound quite good if you use single ply heads without muffling.It seems everyones major complaint was that they were dead sounding.Hydraulic heads covered in tape and tissue paper would kill the tone on ANY drum,single head or not.

growing up i played a 9pc slingerland set with concert toms on the 6,8,10,12,13,14... 16,18 were double headed.. my toms were the extra deep ones they had a cool sound but never really what i wanted.. after buying my first double headed toms in 1990 i could never go back to concert toms unless they were octobons or something special.

"I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord..." :rolleyes:

How much cheaper are they? Or is there no differnce in price point.

This has been kicked around on the DFO for over a year. Somebody listened. :blink:

JR are you gonna start building them too?

"Broad frequency response." Sounds like the opposite of the DW "note" shell? Does this mean all we need to do is angle the bottom re-ring? I need to ponder "broad frequency response." Ace

Sweet- It's time to dust off my yellow Vistalite Quadraplus...

Bermuda- your Vista set looks beautiful by the way. Have you tracked with it yet?

Thank goodness Canopus finally eliminated the "unwanted (crevice) ripping sound". :blink:
