They all sound great, and of course you have to love those GB's.

If I'm not mistaken it seemed the Oak Custom were tuned a little to the low side, the Fibes medium and the Reference on the high side.... in a relative way.

If I HAD to pick the best sound for my tastes, it was the Pearls. they had a nice definition and focus to my ears. Its floor tom missed a little bit of gusto on the low end but it looked like a 14, compared to 16's on the other kits.

You're lucky to have such nice gear, do you play it out much?
Thanks man. I am swapping out heads almost constantly to learn as much as possible. I can go from preferring single ply clear heads one minute to thicker dual ply coated heads the next. Its crazy.

I play in an original alt rock band and we play out a little. Not enough though. Actually, I would probably slow down with gear swapping if we played more. Lol

I alsi have a funk project starting that will hopefully take off.

Thanks for the compliments about my tuning. I mess with it ALOT!
