Comments:

I received this drum a few days a ago to compliment a Majestic 6.5 Walnut Prophonic (also reviewed). I first heard this drum at a percussion seminar and was blown away by its range and focus. It is very sensitive but can easily roar when called upon. Since I use this drum primarily in a concert band setting, I've subbed out the medium wire strand for Majestic's spiral wire to provide the option of a slightly 'wetter' sound. I ran the drum through a variety of styles at rehearsal and was surprised at the versatility it offered. We started with a traditional march, followed by some 'pit' music, a traditional rag, and a modern symphonic piece. In each case I found a unique voice that complimented the character of music. The mechanism on the Prophonic series is also joy to use -- very straight forward, quick, responsive and solid. Because of the range and sensitivity of this model it is now my go-to drum, with the 6.5 walnut being called upon whenever we need a darker / deeper voice. These drums are just fantastic and highly recommend them.
