Wait, how did they trademark SST if Pearl already has it copyrighted for Superior Shell Technology?

It must be the Illuminati or something

I assume because one is a shell and the other is a head. They don't compete.

Honestly, I want the floor toms to resonate more and just be "bigger" in all respect than the 8" tom. Its what they are there for. Its what they do!

So tune your resos to match your batters. That's the max. Resonance your going to achieve from any drum. G2 batters tuned low with g1 resos tuned low.. Let em' sing.
