Re: MY NEW M BIRCH IN MMMM GREEEN!
I cant get the amount of dampening right in the kick yet, to get right amount of punch and low end. I will put a small pillow in it soon. The toms have deep tones, however there is a lot of ring on the snare right through the tuning range, i will probably get a remo powerstroke 3 or other pre-dampened head soon. As i have only had the kit 2 days i dont have everything tuned how i like it yet but i will get sound clips up sometime.
You do need the moongel a bit because the heads are cheap and thin but only really on the larger toms.
Also, I was really close to buying a 16" floor tom to go with it but i found out it was £159 ($300) so I decided against it but i might well buy one at some time in the future as the option is always open. Hope that answers all questions and thanks for the replies!
