    22" K Con model characteristics?

    There is a huge variation in each model, so every question here is impossible to answer besides the profile question. High and low refers to the profile shape.

    Zildjian K Custom Hybrids or K Sweet Hi Hats

    Completely depends on if it’s a mediocre, good, or special pair of either. The specific pair is much more important to me than the model.

    Aaaaw man! I'm feelin' GAS-y again...

    The new ones don’t chop sticks the same as the old ones. They are thicker. The old ones were thinner and sharper at the edge.

    Is the ride cymbal dying in modern rock music?

    All you have to do to know this isn’t true is pay attention. Sure there’s a lot of amateurs who cover up sloppiness with a lot of noise. This is not the case in any professional band that I’ve ever heard. It’s a style. It’s a sound. It is what it is. But sloppy it is not, at least in any...

    New Recording Customs - 20" or 22" bass drum?

    This represents the sound of the 20 well. It would sound even bigger and more resonant with an offset port.

    New Recording Customs - 20" or 22" bass drum?

    I had the 20 and with the riser and the 16” depth, it sounds a lot like a 22. I truly loved that drum and it was different from my other 20s. I think it would be different enough in sound and feel from your gretsch USA and occupy the space in your arsenal that you’re looking for in the 22. The...

    I know I’m not supposed to like this but I do

    I used to play at a jazz jam session where the setup was a 20” old k and a pair of b8 hats lol

    Sound of Bass Drum with Tom Mounts Vs Virgin

    Depending on the drum, I actually notice it sounds better with toms mounted on it. I think it has to do with more weight being on the drum, similar to putting a weighted pillow in the drum. More depth and focus. The toms might resonate with the bass drum more too, which could be a good or bad...

    Tama Club-Jam Suitcase?

    I just think it’s cool that a major manufacturer is finally offering a nesting kit (excluding the discontinued Yamahas). There’s so many kits out there to suit your needs if this isn’t your bag.

    "Unsteel" or "Woody" drumhead

    Not my thing but this one does pretty good at dulling and thickening the sound of any drum. I remember playing it on a backline kit at gig, metal snare and thinking it sounded pretty “woody”...

    Aquarian heads vs Remo and Evans?

    He means they lack character, which I agree with. They create an idealized, sort of eq’d sound that’s nice but one dimensional. Remos got more funk/harmonics going on that can cut through music better and sound more interesting.

    Aquarian heads vs Remo and Evans?

    It’s just the feeling they give me man. Maybe I mean Remos have a broad, open, lively frequency spectrum and Aquarian’s are darker and emphasize mids and lows more, does that make more sense?

    Aquarian heads vs Remo and Evans?

    Aquarian’s tend to be a little fatter and darker sounding to my ears. Remo are more open and rich across the frequency spectrum. Evans are my least favorite, not as rich as Remos and not as full as Aquarian.
