How do you like that ozone? It seems to me like its the perfect amount of trashiness from the youtube videos I've heard.

Also how do you like the BoB? Can you get a good sound out of it?

I love the ozone! It sounds much better in person than on the youtube vids though. In regards to the BoB, I love it too! It's been my workhorse snare for a while now. I run an Evans Hazy 300 reso with an Evans HD Dry batter, and 20 strand Puresound Custom Pro snare wires. In my honest opinion, the BoB is one of the most underrated snares on the market today. It truly is AWESOME and I'd recommend it to anyone!

d.d.d...DAMN ! Very nice. i especially like the "Timbre Note = E". the snare has a badge / note as well ? this is a HUGE selling point for me to actually see the shell's resonant note. too sweet.

That is wild, drop dead gorgeous kit. Was that one huge group purchase, as in you bought the whole enchilada at the same time? All I can can say is, got any extra money you can give me? lol

Thanks bro! It was one huge purchase. I sold off my old PDP LX drum set, drum rack and cymbals to buy these. Here's a pic of what I sold just for reference....In regards to sharing the funds, unfortunately I'm tapped. ;)

Thanks! To be honest, I liked my old kit, but the DWs completely surpass them in every aspect from sound, to build quality, the list goes on and on. Plus, I need to downsize a bit so quality over quantity came into play. ;)

Those are really pretty! Congrats! It's funny how DW now puts this big certificate of authenticity inside the shell to denote the note it'll ring best at! Really - they should make it BIGGER ;) When I had mine it was just a rubber stamp of a letter back in the day.

I wonder if the customer told them what pitches he wanted, how much extra they would charge to make a kit in a customers' key....

Thanks! From what I can tell, that's where the SSC shells come into play. I was also told by a DW rep that an there wasn't any additional charges involved for SSC shell requests.

I bet the red does look awesome but something about the blue just does it for me. Definitely one of my alltime favorite finishes. And you're right, it does look better in person! ;)

Lookin' good, I am guessing you grew up with two toms mounted on the kick, glad the kick is virgin though. Enjoy those babies.
