The blankets are Audimute sound blankets. They are AWESOME! They made a HUGE difference in my old studio where I kept them. They also made a big difference in my basement. They definitely stop a lot of reflecting sound and help tone down the room. The only downfall is they are kinda gawdy and...
the Tama G-Maple is a 13x7 and it's one of THE BEST SNARES out there.
I have over 50 snare drums in my collections and I can not talk highly enough about that one.
Best bang for the buck
I know it's not metal like you're asking but you wouldn't be disappointed.

pulled down all the shelves
