    Thanks fellas. I've been changing heads out, but now I have to take my son to baseball practice. I'm going to set the kit up at home, tune it more, and do some testing then.

    Do you work at an organ shop? Looks like quite a collection of Leslies.

    So it's actually a wrap.
    From a distance it looks like a lacquered wood finish.

    I think it looks better with the black kick drum resonate head.

    A little test run. Nothing special by any means, but I just wanted to see how it sounded thorough my phone and earbuds.
