Got mine, my initial impressions are very good. I played them side by side with some MV heads. The 56 heads have a similar tone to the MV but are better in dynamics, they play quieter and play louder than the MV. I love MV but struggled with their low dynamics, there seemed to be a threshold below which or above which they lost their tone, the 56 extend the range a whole lot. It will take some time to dial these in, and I have not tried a snare yet, but I'm a fan.
