I think that was featured in a thread here before. Great concept, but I bet that thing weighs a ton. Also - I wouldn't want to have to buy a hoop for that thing someday. I bet it ain't cheep.
You can't beat the quickness of changing a batter head, though.
I wonder if it tensions the snare side head the same as the top head. If it does, then I know a lot of drummers who won't like that aspect.
I really appreciate the innovative ideas and pushing the boundary for drum design we have seen in the past few years from several builders (this drum included). But I am SO not the target audience for these new designs! While I dont what to be "that guy", I mean come on... no reason to see our instruments stuck back in the past... but I am. I always feel like it's just reinventing something that did not need reinventing! I wound never want a drum I could not tune heads at different pitches on. It's just because, I am apparently "that guy"!
