It seems you like a damped Tom sound, considering you have two moongel pads on every tom. You could just as well get Evans EC2 heads, I use these with my Tour Customs and don't need to use any moongel, except on the snare. The EC2s are also very durable and only need changing maybe once a year or even more seldom.

Thank you! It is very nice to play must say :) I'm playing almost everything.. trying different styles so I can find the style which is best for me. But now I play mosty prog, metal, rock, funk and fusion.

All the shells are 100% maple. It's not North American maple though but it is still good. The kick is 17'' deep, I measured it. I was suprised aswell that it is 17'' deep because they are usually 16'', 18'' or 20''!

Yeah I like damped sound. But if I had better heads I would not do that. As I told in the specs I am going to buy new heads as soon as possible. Those heads are just too resonant for my taste. I think I'm going to buy Aquarian Response 2 coated heads for tom toms and floor tom. Kiitos kumminkin! :)

Just turned the kit into a bassdrum, floortom and tom tom kit and tightened all the lugs from those three drums.. They were so loose. Now they sound very nice!

Ha they do :) Sounds good, i've done recording with them and live and all sounds good on the playback and when live! I know what you mean though, i'll be able to tune easily one day meaning i won't have to 'gaffer' up! ;)

Looks very nice! ;) In my opinion I would use less dampening, but it's your set!
