Thanks. To answer your questions: yes it does sound as good as it looks (much like your own Neil Peart tribute).
I usually only use one snare b/c of space (however it's the Pacific b/c I have it tuned very sensitive with a crisp pop); I can recommend having an aux snare just to widen the sonic pallette a bit. Plus no one has bought his last
Despite the fusion sizes, I play mostly hard rock, a little funk, and I take stabs at some jazz.
And lastly no, I don't sit in w/ wife's band cuz i'm just not good enough to gig yet. Plenty of missteps and restarts in my drumming, but I love to practice and get better.
