    Re: Drilling a brand new DW bass drum - am I crazy?

    Are you looking at the 5.5 or 6.5" deep?

    I've got the Collector's Series version of this snare. It's a great instrument IMO.

    Great looking kit!

    Re: First Impressions: Evans Coated G2

    The coated G2 is a great drumhead in my experience. Warm tone, good sustain and durable coating. I've not tried the 360 version of this particular head yet.

    3) My current kit is...
