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.
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.
