speaking of OCDP i heard their split snares are loud as fuck. and i saw a guy use a a vented snare last week that was really loud too. prolly not for me though

I dont know, it might not sound that bad ... Impact Drums makes fiberglass drums with port holes in the front of them, and I dont think they sound that bad. I remember seeing a live concert of Weird Al Yankovic on TV (I know, I know ... but it was years and years ago) and his drummer's kit didn't sound bad at all. But, as far as money is concerned I wouldnt go drilling holes into my toms.
