Re: my review Super Kick 1 / Regulator combo
I tried the SKI and just couldn't get a sound I loved from it. It wasn't horrible, but not what I wanted. Cranked up fairly tight I found the sound really boxy, and tuned low there just wasn't enough resonance. (This sounds to me like the same experience the OP had.) The drum was noticeably quieter than with my prefer PS3 or EQ3, too. I never found a sweet spot that I liked, and I ended up giving that head away.
Interestingly, not long ago I played another guy's kit with an SKI on it. He was raving about the sound, but I found it completely uninspiring both out front and behind the kit. So it is clearly a matter of different strokes for different folks.
