I'm using EC2 over G-Plus, I like the sound very much. Especially the larger toms, they have a nice boomey sound now.I've used EC2 with EC Resonants and liked the sound, though it's pretty controlled.
With the EC1 being four mil thicker than the EC Reso I'm not really sure if that would be a good thing or not. The EC1 is a pretty stiff head.
It's the album cover from Gentle Giant's album 'Octopus'. The artwork is by Roger Dean (who did most of the Yes album covers) and is the UK version of the album. Back in the day, for us GG fans, getting an import copy of 'Octopus' with the Roger Dean cover was like hitting the lottery.what the heck is that in your avatar Bruce???
