Re: Please, help with HEADS and tunning for a Superstar Hyperdrive
Have you had someone else play them while you stood >10ft away? Drums always sound better from an audience distance than they do when you're right on top of them; without muffling anyway...
If you're playing by yourself and don't have to worry about cutting through guitars/basses/etc, or the sound from a distance then you may want to use some light muffling, just to take the plasticy edge off.
I have the same kit (no 8" though), and mine have the same plasticy/cardboard sound from the driver's seat. I just throw o-rings on my toms and they sound great. If I ever start playing out and/or with other people then I'll re-evaluate.
ohh and I'm using coated G2s over clear G1s
