We'd really love to get some feedback.

I like the Remo Suede series these appear to emulate. I prefer the single ply myself. I think the choice to go with the black is a mistake. They look terrible and will be out of vogue in short order and turns the more traditional user base off which I would think is a larger group.

I think the G Plus line is more unique and fills a niche and should be receiving your marketing push. The 14 ply EQ1 is just a little thick for a single ply. It feels like hitting a practice pad. Its too stiff and the ring sucks the life out of it for my taste. The 12mil might just fit the bill nicely for a fuller sound without going 2ply
