Good line with mediocrity and excellence. Are you sure that's still a coated ambassador on your snare? Glad to see your stuff. I really dig the 2oo2s.

I taped the logo so it's still there, so it is a coated ambassador. I'm selling it soon I think for a maple kit so i'm afraid to put a new head on it and wear that out before it's sold... lol
Besides it's only the main component of a drum set, who needs a nice head? :)

Remo heads have a problem with durability i think, my snare heads have the same problem.

Really? I hear a lot of people saying that but mine are workhorses. I'm going on 5 months w/ my current coated ambo snare batter and I feel like it's just now settling in and sounding its best. It still has all of its coating and looks fine.

I hit this thing everyday, for hours!

Anyhow, nice kit - You must be a tall dude to hit those big toms way up on that big kick drum!

MRA, those drums look alright to me and the 2oo2's are awsome!

also, i gotta stick up for Remo here too, i have played the coated Ambassador and the coated G1 - they both chipped, flaked and dented. however, i'am drummer enough to admit that this problem with heads is my own fault. period.

Remo makes good heads, so does Evans, but good technique is our own to make...

Eh the drums are pretty good and i've had the same heads on the toms and the snare for a while... The snare is old so for it to be like that still is impressive in my opinion lol...
And nah i'm only 5'10. It must be an illusion type of thing lol.. I don't really have troubles reaching for anything on my kit thankfully :)
