Yep. Nothing too great. I like it tho.
If anyone can get me tips on how to tune it with coated heads and what kind of coated heads to get please help? I have the evans hydraulic heads on right now. And I feel like im cheating the sound haha. Anyway enjoy!

Wow, nice setup, I like the color too. Interesting resonant on the kick. Is that painted on or some sort of sticker? Love the flat setup it looks very cool...

awesome setup, how does that ZBT china sound? ive heard from a few people that there the worst of the ZBT range, what do you think of it?

if you want some coated heads i would go with some Remo Coated Ambassadors or Coated Emperors because they sound good on anything, and will sound AWESOME on your MXR

Is there a reason your cymbals are all parallel to the floor? I KNOW it's not because you're a Travis Barker wannabe right?

I agree. Very cool kit. I'm really digging that front kick reso. painted or vinyl? If that positioning works for you and makes it comfy to play, that's all you need.

Thats one hell of a welcome isn't? Set ups like like can be pretty comfy, plus I can guarantee that Travis Barker could out play you with one arm behind his back...

Love the bass drum resonate head. I think it really compliments your kit.

Curious where you got it? I don't think that particular head would go with my kit, but I would really like to purchase a custom head.

Perhaps someone can recommend a good outfit? Preferably one thats set up online.

Best,

Ryan

Hey, a fellow pacific owner! I have a MX, not an MXR, though. What snare is that?

Oh, and this should help with tuning and head choices.

Your kit looks great. Very clean set up. So much talk about tom angles. Plppbt. Not all of us could play Keith Carlock's set up or the venerable Neil Peart's toms that he likes to put in the stratosphere. So, be cool people. Of course, don't tell us you just did it like that for the picture...; )

I'm currently working with them on my first order and the early results of my experience are fantastic.

Ok now back on topic for me

On my pacific MX i currently use Remo coated Ambassadors over clear ambassadors. Perfect sound I'm looking for. The warm attack and resonance is near perfection. The only problem is that it takes a good time to sit and tune your drums.
Before that I had remo emperors. they were a bit to hard rock for my sound but they could fit you.
Sorry I have not had any experience with Evans tom heads. Really i think all heads will give you a decent sound but you just have to find what sound your looking for.

Agreed. this is a nice set. Low and flat is the way to go.

I recently converted my six-piece completely flat - cymbals and toms. Now there is no drop-off between the rack and floor toms, which I have always found awkward. The bass art is great. I also used Drumart.com for mine - they are great to work with and I recommend them highly.

I've always loved the 3 down set up. It just feels right; having everything level with the snare.
