Very nice, but do you have new heads in mind?

Or you could try some moongels.


I like that china, what style of music do you play?

i'm planning on getting new reso heads but i like the emporers on the toms. i play all types of rock ranging from metal to funk and psychedelic

i love my china too, it's perfect for accenting even throught the loudest music.

by the way, what are moongels?

I'll be the first to say.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :( You don't know what moongels are? You haven't LIVED.
Nah, don't worry, it's alright :) just teasing. Moongels are a muffling device, as seen here.

They do to your drums what duct tape does, except they're VERY reusable and look stylish.
So when you get your head change, spend a few dollars, get one or two packs of MoonGel and do away with tape :)
Cel.

PS. Nice kit :D

Sweet set love the finish.

I think Clear Ambassadors would do the trick as a reso head.

If you lose the Remo batters, and switch to Evans G2 (clear or coated), you won't have to worry about Moongels, or any other type of external muffler. Proper tuning (via a DrumDial or something similar), will make all the difference in sound

Personally i wouldve chosen a different color tape to use on my drum heads lol.

The set looks pretty great. Im a huge fan of having 3 rack toms and 2 floor toms. You may want to upgrade your B8's btw.

i tend to change the colour depending on my mood, i think i'm going to go black next time tho, and i am looking to upgrade my B8's. the crashes i can live with for now. i think i'm going to get a 21" hand hammered raw bell dry ride to replace my existing one i'm pretty undicided on what hats to get tho. any suggestions?

Possibly a 20" A custom Projection ride, or Ping ride. Both extremley versitle and quite nice sounding. If you like a little darker you could always get a 22" instead.
