I got square sizes because I was looking for a bit more "meat" when hitting a tom. Kinda hard to decribe.....but the square sizes worked. Next time I think I will get some more traditional sizes so I can lay my toms a little more flat.


The EC2's are EXCELLENT! Maybe the best head I have used. Helps my tune my toms to a wider range, the ring around the head gives me so much control. Sound is perfect...big and meaty....Plus the help keep my triggers tame when I am at a show that cant mic my entire kit.

i play an Eames kit. made by joe mcsweeney in saugus,ma. they sound unreal live. the drums project so well that close miking them does the drums no justice. they need to be miked with an over head or two. the sweat spot seems to be about 3.5 feet above the heads and behind a little. anyway, check out Eames...their snare drume...butter...really

8x10, 10x8, 12x10, 14x14, 20x16
