Re: Show off your TAMA !
I've had a QSnare for a while and have played with it more extensively than the C02. I've always gotten a somewhat compressed sound from it, you can hear it on a lot of Youtube clips. The second I plugged in the C02, I got the crack/pop/bright snare sound I wanted. It's a win/win as well because the C02 is tiny and takes up no room where the is none. I've got the QSnare that came with the kit mounted to the bottom rim of the main snare as a batter mic.
The C02 is easily my favorite mic on the kit. As a whole, the Samson kit is phenomenal.
