Edit: Finally found some time this afternoon to bang on the kit. This is after about 30 minutes of banging through half a dozen songs. The black has turned into a kinda ugly grey, but that doesn't bother me much. What I'm more impressed with is the sound. It's exactly what I wanted, minimal ringing, a wee bit of overtone, and still lots of bark. I like the dark side, but I think I'm gonna go back to the light after this one wears out...
I'm the same way. I liked the Black Suedes for like 2 weeks, then I was like meh...give me plain old clears or whatever. :-)
