Nice playing! Nice work all around! Cymbals and drums sound great, and it's one of the first demo videos I've seen in a while that I didn't immediately think "hmmm, I wish the toms were tuned a little higher!"

It's hard to tell through headphones, but is there much involvement of the reso head in the tom sound? They sound a little closed off, and I don't think it's the pitch of the batter head. Just curious.

Short answer is yes, long answer is... not entirely sure! May sound closed off because they're just coming through the overhead mics. The resos are tuned higher than the batters. We've have a few videos on our tuning philosophies up on the YouTube channel!

Nice playing, good video. Nothing extra, just the good stuff.
I really like the shot from the ride cymbal.
