Re: Good kits for under $1000???

I have the exact same situation with my Catalina Ash. It still sounds good, but knowing that it could be better is bugging me. I can't fix it my self, so one day I will just need to pay someone to do...

Re: Who has to play to a click or backing track live?

Re: Snare Advice!

Hey you,

I have Catalina Ash as well. I struggled with the snare until I put Evans Genera Dry on it. Medium tension with high on the resonant and now I don't mind it at all. I do have other snares...

Re: 20" bass drum

I have 20x18 kick drum with Evans EQ2 batter, EQ1 resonant, kick port installed and just a tinny bit muffling, similar to what Simon Philips does. I don't have any issues with the volume from it.

I will definitely give a try on the clear G12s/G14.

Re: Urgent request for any info on Remo Drums...

I have 14" by 3" Remo snare and I love it, especially with the Evans Genera Dry head on it. How ironic :)
