Fantasic drum

Comments:

I've owned this drum for about 16 months. During that time, I've played it in our community concert band with superb results. I've never been a fan thin sounding traditional spiral wire set-ups and I wanted something a bit more complex that wouldn't just 'cut' but compliment the instrumentation. I started with the stock set-up and it sounded fantastic -- dark, full, articulate but resonate. I decided to make a few modifications given the range of music we perform, from modern symphonic fanfares to Sousa and beyond. Subbing out the Skintone head for a Renaissance head in addition to swapping the synthetic gut for Majestic's four-strand spiral wire gave the drum a more traditional sound while continuing to offer a broad range of voices. I have since added the Prophonic Aluminum to my collection and have restored this drum back to it's stock configuration. As a pair they compliment each other nicely and offer an amazing range of possibilities. Highly recommended!

Great drum!

Comments:

Sounded great, right out of the box! Through various combinations of gut, cable, bead, and traditional wire snares this drum can sound crispy and dry for articulate playing, or warm and full for smooth rolls. Being able to disengage all snares at once, or one at a time is a great feature. Oh, and it looks beautiful! Great product!
