I always like an interval of at least 2 inches between my toms too. There seems to be so little difference between a 12" and a 13". It is much more pronounced in larger intervals.

True, mine are also 12" and 13" ... but I can tune the 13" deep enough to go with my floortom.

Great snare man.. I like it... but do you always need a moongel?.. I suppose a snare like that doesnt need it.. why dont you try another head?.. just an opinion.
And amazing ride too.. congrats...

yeah true, try out a high energy head they tend to damp things down slightly without totally killing your tone.

As for the kit, looks good. Looks very old-school with those CS tom heads.

okay well i'd say probably the remo equivalent is actually the CS snare. Personally i'm a preferer of just having 1 ply standard vanilla sort of reso heads, people did used to use them though but it will damp down the sound a bit.

+1 don't listen to your guitar player. You don't tell him to use a fender amp because you don't like the sound of his marshall or whatever. I mean i suggest what amps my guitar player should get but that's only because he asked me. Otherwise get what you want.

they are really great heads. My mate paid 70 for a set of EMAD heads.

Also i remember i saw one of those 50th anniversary snares in bad dog. They still haven't sold it yet, but it looks good anyway.

well i'm sure you should know what a power dot would sound like by now? I think it would be fine, little less "open" than the head like you've got now.
