I have had the best sucses with the Yamaha DTXM12.
They have the perfect, multi layered orchestral/ethnic/oriental sound set and presure sensitive pads for hand and mallet use.
They are used in pits a lot...
I use 15x14 and 18x14 floors.
They have a quicker response, and due to the mahogany deeper sounds over-all.
My rack toms are all 7” deep.
I want the same response from the rack toms so they have the same depth, this goes for the floors too.

I have shared the list on the FB groups.
