Default Re: Show Off Your DW Kit

MrCoffee, if you're looking for a controlled rock sound on those drums, have you tried the Remo clear Vintage Emperors ? I really like them on another kit I have - with 3 ply mahogany shells with maple re-rings and 30 degree edges.

Like the DW Jazz shells, they are nice a take on 'modern vintage'. Slightly darker than regular emperors but more controlled, less sustain, just as resonant. Very close . Logo is very different:)
Clear emps have been my 'rock head' for about 15 years and I would have no qualms using the clear vintage emps on anything...
