skip the pinstrips I had them on my export and I hated them go with emporers or g2's trust me on this. If you want an even deader sound try the EC2's but I found them hard to keep in tune.

For snare I personally hate my export snare but 1 plys tunned high is a good choice.

Bass- drum I've tried a lot of different heads and the ones that stand out are the Emad 2 and the superkicks, they have an ass load of low end.

The snare's got a really nice sound if you tune the batter and reso head very tight. But this only works with Ahead sticks, because they have more attack. Wood sticks dont produce a nice sound on it when its tightened up like that. I'd like to have a 12"7" snare as main snare, kinda like Chris Adler, I like the popping sound. I also love to have a second bassdrum, but since they dont produce exports anymore, I'm kinda screwed...

I found that all the coating on my Pearl coated snare batter wore off in a week. Replace!
