Just Buy One!

Oh Baby! You want power, depth, crispness, versatility as well as serious cojones? Of course you do! It's a beast of a drum! It's a darker-toned sound as compared to a chromed steel; more like a Black Beauty. Sounds wonderful at all tunings; like a brass-shelled drum should. I favored this over a Ludwig Black Beauty after comparing the two. The Mag throw-off is truly the finest strainer I've ever used; no loose play anywhere. The threading on the tuning lugs is crazy! Be prepared to do lots of turning when changing heads! For a fat tuning, I tune the batter head to a B just below Middle C. For higher tuning I will opt for Middle C or C#. I keep my bottom head at F above Middle C, but do experiment! I forgot to mention how heavy this drum is! Beautiful Nickel finish too! Just buy one now!
