Agreed!, the 12 is a pain, and has been for many of my kits, I can never get the tone I want from it.
I know Benny Greb isn't playing 3007s by any means, but he mentions using the Coated Emperors over Coated Ambassadors. I haven't seen this combo mentioned yet, and while I do have a CE on my 8", and love it, I don't have the bottom of it coated yet. I think this will be my next combo. right now I mainly use G2 coated, and think they're too dead. They might be good for studio work, but not so much live.
