    Default Improving the Sound on the Practice Set

    At the house where my band has all practice sessions, the guitarist-owner has a set of cheapy entry-level Yamaha shells and a few cymbals.
    I'm glad to have them there so I don't need to lug my drums around all the time -- I usually just supplement with a couple of my cymbals.

    I decided to tame the beast a little and improve the sound by switching the (old) clear Emps to coated Super 2s and the resos to Aquarian Classic Clears.
    The result is I got less attack and lower volume, which is a good improvement considering the room we work in.
    But I still have the weak/thin tone of the shells -- not what I had hoped for, but also not a complete surprise either.

    You should clearly ask him to purchase an upgrade!
    Six piece Mapex Armory, Black Panther Blade snare drum, Sabian XSR cymbals, and Vater Drumsticks.

    Play the song, not the drums.
