It’s a delightful drum. It’s dark and throaty with immense body and “thickness”. It’s a pleasant sounding drum and not a crackwhip. What I really like about it, is that it’s almost two drums in one; lively and singing played off center w/rimshots but struck dead center the pitch drops and you get this super fat backbeat sound. A pleasant bonus is how sensitive it is. I have a few Starphonics and this one is the most sensitive of the bunch.Hum... do I spot a Tama Copper Starphonic in there? What do you think about it? Looking for some user reviews for sure.
