I like the focus that the die cast rims provide. Very warm and resonant sounding with not much decay with the Fiberskyn batters I just put on. Fiberskyn reso on the bass drum too, forggeddaboudit. Sounds great. Looks great. More pics coming later....
Actually, I asked DW to put some triple flanged hoops on the toms simply because I wanted a more open sound with added resonance. Result? A sound that kicks your butt without the annoying ring, just good natural resonance. I get a little bit of the focus back when I select a thicker head. I did some stage and recording with it and engineers just love it. They walk around it and go: mmmmmm, nice! I love it.
