When all is said and done, the way a drum is struck is just as important as the head choice.
You're actually right, I think I should change the angle of my rack tom
For some reason it has a really flat/thin sound that I don't like, and I assume this is why
The tune/tone is good, but it just sounds very thin and the thing is that it's probably the best tuned things on my kit next to my snare.
So I'll get to that ASAP
