Another thing you'll notice: coated drumheads (at least the "modern" coated heads, where the coating all but flakes completely off after a month or two of playing) may have the coating transferred to your cymbals.
I could go on a rant about Remo Coated Ambassadors; old vs. new. I have a Coated Amb on my Delite snare, it was on it when I bought it. I've had that snare for over 6 years now, and the coating is still all there. The new Coated Amb I put on a Force 3005 snare had the coating half flaked off after only a month or two. That was back in 2008; I hope Remo solved this QC issue since then!
I don't think he's going to notice his coating coming off given that he's mentioning a TD-30...
At any rate, if you're using roland mesh or any home-made mesh on your toms/snare, DO NOT use wood tip sticks. After a short while, the wood on the tip will splinter ever-so slightly, and those splinters will catch on the mesh, ripping them up.
Use nylon tip on mesh-head kits, and also, stop being a wiener about fricken marks on your cymbals. They are a tool to make music, not an art-piece to keep "perfect".
