Re: Todd Sucherman here!
Todd, that's great info about the kit's shell composition and sound. I love the depth and punch of my Mapex Saturn (6-ply) but hate the lingering overtones sometimes. I could definitely see the problem when mic'ing live.
I guess for my next drum set, I'll experiment a litle thicker! And definitely with Bubinga. Awesome material.
I've been drumming for 35 years. I'm 34 years old.
