Sorry to hear the kit was a quack.I will hence-forth be referring to that as the "Turducken Kit". Hell, maybe they should just put a duck in the bass drum. Would probably sound better.Gotta say, the Liberty drums looked nice, but didn't sound very good.
But worst in show sound-wise was that goofy SJC kit. I asked if the kick inside the kick, the woofer on the floor tom, and the tube through the rack tom were just for the show. The guy hit all three drums and said "the sound speaks for itself." Indeed it did. Just atrocious. In no genre could those lifeless, flappy sounds possibly work. He would have been smarter and more correct to say "this kit is just to attract attention to the booth" and not let anyone play them. Their tenacity is admirable, but I am very embarrassed for them.
