Yes. They sound very good, they're supposed to replace the B/B's, but that tone is not quite there. That doesn't mean you wouldn't like them better.Not sure if anyone started a thread...but has anyone played them? What do you think? I always liked the Starclassic maple stuff, but wondering how these sound.
They have a fairly wide range, depending on tuning, but they never rang out much on me. They may not have the warm B/B tone, but I thought they were real versatile, with a nice attack. Most GC's have 1 set up. Of corse you'd want to check them out for yourself, but I really liked them. I believe the bass drum was 16x22, and pack some punch. I can see the combo becoming very popular. Esthetically, they're very nice looking (inside, and out). A solid kitDo the toms sound really short? Not sure where I was getting that impression. I know they have die cast hoops, which is going to be more of a Gretsch vibe. Curious to see how they stack up to the plain ol’ maple version. I know that Tama puts very high quality into all of their lines, including the less expensive stuff.
