How did you tune your Signet set? Also, what heads are you using? I just got my Signet kit today and thought I would see what worked for you before I made my decision on heads for it.

Btw, impressive picture angles you had there

Thanks. I put coated ambassadors on the tops and clear ambassadors on the bottom. The bass drum has a PowerStroke3 and the Ludwig head on front. I initially went with a tight jazz tuning, then after getting the heads to settle, I tuned them down to a medium feel. It not only does the high jazz tuning great, but I can tune it down like Henley's sound in the Eagles. That's the mark of a good kit for me - it I can tune any way I need.

Agreed. It takes the typical heads well and tunes up/down with ease (very versatile). If you want to save a bit the stock batters (Ludwig Clear Heavy) make decent reso heads (similar to clear ambassador/g1).

Hey guys, I noticed a Ludwig Signet 3 piece 12/14/20 on sale at a place called Stebal drums in Ohio. The price is $699. Just thought I'd let ya know. It looks like the dark brown color.

That would be another steal if they're new. On eBay dealers are still selling them for $949!

Here's a used kit for 450... probably close to 500ish after shipping and tax. No PICS so you don't know what you're going to get. I had GC send me pics of a 3 piece kit a while back and it was a kick and two hi-toms. I don't know why they don't do a better job of listing used kits.

Just called and it's sold so you have to call them before you order...???

Hi. Sorry to revive. About to pull the trigger on one of these. Any negative comments from people who have been using these for a few years please?

None. Just played mine the other night and still dig them!
