From your first post:
"I’ve done everything I can think of doing. I’ve arranged the drums differently … ran through a huge assortment of heads … different tensions … different sticks … different rooms … … …"
I agree.To be honest, if they still don’t sound and feel right after all the head combinations you tried I would say it’s time to move on. It shouldn’t be that difficult to dial in a quality kit to your taste. No doubt N&C Horizons are a quality kit but just not your thing. Sorry to hear as I am sure it is disappointing to finally receive your new kit and it just ain’t right...good luck in whatever you decide the next step is.
It’s the first of two kits I’m picking up for a film. It was built with my specific requirements. The shade of the finish, the hardware, the badge placement, the sizes, the brass nameplate on the bass, etc etc.I may have missed it but what was the custom elements?

it’s not an off the shelf kit. There are subtle items I needed specific for this film.
HAHA !! Ok.. what prize are you going to send me !! ?? LOL… well … this is uncomfortable.
For those of you keeping score at home ... The “ROOM” variable was the culprit.
Thank you. Sincerely … thank you.
I don't get how mirrors livened the sound, Dan? I am doing a drum studio in my house and bought a bunch of foam squares/corners for insulation....now you got me re-thinkin'......I did the same thing with my studio. Too dead. I put in some mirrors and viola! Problem solved. Also, I would've gigged with the kit. Real glad you figured it out. Beautiful kit there.
