Correct, it just was meh to me. I fell for the dw marketing and though very good drums they don’t inspire me. Believe me, I tried different head combos and different tensions and nothing did it for me. I’ve been playing drums for the better part of 30 years with a little break in between. They just don’t do it for me.I spent months and countless dollars I could have put forth on a kit, wasting time trying to get my old set to my liking. Got my Gretsch and even my wife noticed the difference. Same heads, same tuning (Tune-Bot), different shells, bearing edges and hoops and voila! With all the ...I can make a trash can sound awesome with proper heads and tuning...posts, I was kicking myself and spending hours trying to figure out why I couldn't. You need a proper foundation, then heads and tuning. Not that OP's DW doesn't have a good foundation, but it just may be wrong for the targeted sound.
