Ah, but therein lies the crux of the biscuit. You have to be hip to see why Slingerlands are hip. What did them in was mismanagement and poor fiiscal controls. They'll be coming back under DW. Lots of people are anxiously waiting to see what they come up with. Even the old student level drums were made of the same materials as the regular drums, but with different hardware, and sound incredible today. I know because I have a Stage Band kit that many a sound engineer has praised for how sweet they sound. You gotta know what hipness is. And sometimes hipness is what it ain't...Slingerland were never hip with their spurs. That's what did em in ya know? ; )
I tried to get same pitch.
Love this set!
Hey Tom - before doing the comparison, make sure you get a NASA-endorsed head tension/pitch device, a precision caliper to measure shell thickness, a precision scale to measure the weight of all shells and hardware, a thermometer, a barometer, and a bucket of Xanex for anyone who listens, or else we won't be able to tell which set we like better.
Tom,Quick little sound check before I make longer video.
EVans J1 etched/ambassador clear on toms

I only spent 3 minutes tuning but....I just love the vibe and feel of these drums
I am going to make a round badge vs Slingerland comparison video one of these days
