I just got back from...
 
...My school's open day! Usually it's boring, but I got to go on the drums for an hour or so. The shool kit is a blue Yamaha DP series with Weatherking Coated Emperors on the toms and bass drum. The snare sounds really great...But it's the only thing that did. Despite the heads, the toms were tuned too high and not muffled enough. The bass drum had no muffling and sounded like a very low and boomy tom. As for the cymbals...SOLAR! 'nuff said. Anyway, I enjoyed myself. It's the first time I've been on an acoustic kit for more than half an hour, having played only an electronic kit. Plus there were some Timpani!

You say it like it's a bad thing?

Well i'm sure one day you'll grow to appreciate the wonders of letting your drums sing.
