You need to look at the heads he's using Marc and not blame the kit. Why is it that so many drummer's jump to the conclusion and blame the kit (especially DW Collectors) if they hear something that doesn't suit their tastes? You don't have to answer this, it's just a rhetorical question.

I knew you could do this my brother.
I have no idea why everybody on DC knew that you could do it, except you.
Now go kick a$$.

Anyway, good luck with the project. You will do just fine. Never ever underestimate your capabilities.
Looks like pinstripes on them. I have yet to hear a bad dw kit in person so it is either A) the heads or B) how he tunes or likes em tuned.

Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.
MOST ORCHESTRA'S ARE JUST 1800'S COVER BANDS!
That's great news Rich! glad it's working out! as for the grip, yes he said you gotta tape your fingers if you use it... ouch sorry about your hand.
RED DIRT MOUNTAIN
You know, I read some of the comments on Vinny's drum sounding like crap and I say who cares cause this is about late8 and I am sure his kit won't be as big as Viiny but will sound better. Just sayin.
I was so bummed out, Carr breaking his leg right before the wild card game NOOOOO!!
Yea right..."The Las Vegas Raiders". I had a hard time saying "The L.A. Raider's when Davis moved them "south". They'll always be "The Oakland Raiders" in my eyes!
Thanks Gilles! I'll wait and see if it needs a port. If so, maybe I'll use the "O" in the word "Cross".
I really like the crown. I like it when band logos don't just say the name of the band, but they also have a symbol of the group. It's something that makes them standout. Even if for no other reason than audience members going to the show and thinking, "wow, these guys actually agree on something".
OK. So I think I'm a little out of the loop here. You've decided to join this group? A fancy bass drum head seems like a commitment to me. Congrats!
all the best...
If it has to be ported, why not go under the word cross? You wouldn't mess with the design at all, you'd get the benefit of porting for mic access, and when the room darkens no one will be able to see the hole anyways. Especially if using a black or blue pillow inside the kick - would go pretty well with the color of the resonant head's background.
Nice artwork on the kick head. Who do you use?
Rich, I picked up a set of Evans Black Chrome heads for the restoration of my old Tama Swingstars. I'm impressed with their sound on the crappy Luan shells. They're dark & deep, but don't sound "dead". You might pick up one for your 10" tom and try it.

Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!
"I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham
