Are they really selling for $4200 now?
Yeah. I wouldn't call it "garbage," but I've owned two different MC kick drums, both 22x16" and I could never get a great punchy sound from them for playing loud rock. Engineers at studios tried this and that with them, but we'd never land at anything awesome. Just more like "acceptable" and "we'll fix it in the mix."The kick drum on my MC kit was garbage so I think it wasn't in round because no matter what heads I tried, it sounded boxey.
True, that kick is heavy! I've had two Maple Custom kits (still have one), and I still prefer my Maple Custom Absolute. The MCA is supposedly a "lower" model in terms of price, but I dunno, I just think the MCA is the better kit in terms of tone and versatility.
2018 for me too. Maybe I'll set them up this weekend.I haven't played the MC since 2018, so maybe I'll pull it out later this year and see if it's something I'm missing.
