I'm really beginning to love the look of a fiberskin reso head on a bass drum. How does it sound?

It really opened up the kick alot. The kick being 20" it obviously had a lot of punch, but I think the stock reso and Super Kick II had too much muffling. It sounds so much bigger now too.

Beauty! I recently picked up a Reference kit (Granite Sparkle) and I'm convinced these are the best drums on the market, today.

The bass drum just *plows* through anything and the tone of these drums is incredibly sweet.

I'm inspired to get a Fiberskyn for my kick now.

Great gear! Enjoy!

Damn son... cleeeean! She's a real beauty. I like the cymbals setup as well, looks like you don't need to reach too far. Although I'm curious about your rack toms. Does it feel odd at all when doing a steady roll from snare down all of the toms? Seems like you'd have to go left and then cut right quick. Very nice though.

I actually never got too used to that, so this weekend I was able to tighten everything up a bit and now the 12" is over the kick more.

Very beautiful set. I like how you have economized your cymbals and stands, so you have fewer stands and can show off the great finish.
