Here you can find very cool sound clips of different drums.
Listen to the bass drum called "The Judge" (1930’s Ludwig & Ludwig Maple 14″ x 26″).
This is the sound I am after. I love the fooomp kind of sound and still it is not extremely boomy.
Compare it to...
I fully agree and that was exactly my point.
A lot of us use a PS3 with additional muffling but Remo actually gives us just that with the PS4.
But as I said, very few seem to use them.
The more we talk about it the more curious I get :D
Yes, a long time ago I used clear pinstripe as batter.
What actually makes me want to try the PS4 is the fact that today I am using felt strips on my PS3.....and that drum is only a 24".
Now I am going up in size to a 26" and the coated PS4 doesn't sound dead on the official Remo sound clip.

For me that means that I land on approx $5000 in total :oops:
Either Ludwig has raised the prices...
Today I finally made up my mind and ordered the set....with full round over on all drums.
Thank you all for your input, it was most appreciated.
I also got in touch with another forum member who had first hand information on how a classic maple sound with full round over (baseball bat)...
