Wow beautiful set of drums. Great cymbal selections.

but one question

Are the pinstripes the best sounding you can find on those drums?

Gaha, at the time I was kind of pressed for money, and they came in a pack, so I thought "I can get pretty good quality heads for cheap! Oh boy!"... Well, they don't sound BAD with the rings on them, but I'll probably get something like Coated Emperors for them when these heads wear out, because hey, there's no use wasting good (well, usable) heads! :)

A couple of suggestions, if I may. You want to try the kick mic inserted into the drum abdout half way. This really gets the overall sound of the whole drum. Also have you attempted to baffle the drum kit in at all ? MEaning seeting up some sort of barrier around of the kit to elimante some of the room noise, echo etc. this can get you to the point where you have a very focused sound. These are just suggestions, something you can play with. The only reason I suggest at all is that I've just spent the last two days in a crappy space but were capable to produce some really great sounds from an old PEarl Export.
It will take alot of time, but if you track some sounds then change the surroundings and record again to compare, you'll notice quite a bit of difference.

One othere thing, If you have an extra 57 laying around try using that on the underside of the snare in addition to your regular topside mic. This will give you some extra warmth and high end to the snare.

Beautiful kit. I have a Pro-M in the same color. I also have the 13 X 6 cherry/maple snare. I still have the stock head on it. It doesn't sound bad but, I have a Focus-X on my Ludwig snare and I'm wondering how do you like it on the 13 X 6? What kind of sound do you get from it?

Nice set-up; I just love my Pro-Ms; they're some of the best value-for-money drums out there with seriously bitchin' hardware. And they come in some cool finishes: mine's a Caramel Fade.
