    Sonor SQ1 (brand new kit) problems

    Could be how the room is reacting with that shell.. that is a 10mm shell.. and also.. birch can be tricky to get the lows you want.. that you hear in your head from other recordings. When you have time.. I encourage you to put a FULL front head.. then take it around your place...

    No.. It Won't IMO....... Only If you are recording then it might really be worth it.. but I've had birch, maple and hybrid shells and the maple didn't stomp the others or anything like that.. They were warmer by a little but if you are in a band situation with moderately heavy bass...
