I thought the snares were sick too. What finish is the one you're looking at?

i bought a 13x7 ddrum as a back up a year or so ago.

i think i had it for a week before getting rid of it.

it really sounded terrible. i tried 4 or 5 different head combos and i couldn't do anything to make it sound any less than crappy.

ive heard some BAD stories about the bearing edges...but ive heard better stories about the sounds of the amx....apparently theyre way bomb for studio and live aplications. ive been looking into this series, but the 4 piece only, but have been skeptical because of the stories

I don't like the depth of the bass drums though. 20" seems a little ridiculous.

yeah... it was the ash one...

i think the bearing edges may have just been junk, though i never checked.

it wouldn't stay in tune for shit and no matter what i did tuning and head-wise, it just didn't really have a lot of "snare" sound to it.

strange.
