Thank you for putting that together. It's extremely well done with pretty equal tunings, levels, and playing.

The video leaves me wondering. I hear a distinct difference between all three snares, and I don't think I should considering the nearly identical compositions of the three drums. The Ludwig sounds just like my Ludwig but the Perl and Risen both have these longer-lasting overtones which struck me as unpleasant... Like the aftertaste you perceive when drinking an unfamiliar brand of beer for the first time.

It's strange how bias works. I should have minimized the video the first time through and simply listened so I couldn't see which was which.
