It's one of my goals for this year to record them properly. Live they sound better than any other brand I've played.
I used to sell drums for a living, and I've played all major brands and tons of minor brands (like Brady, Noble & Cooley,
Pork Pie, Orange County, Spaun, Craviotto and loads more) and none has matched the full-bodied warmth and punch of these.
Although I've never played a brand of drums because of any one drummer (no, not even Virg ) I do hear
some say that it reminds them of Vinnie's white Gretsch kit at first glance. That doesn't bother me.
Arguably my kit isn't the prettiest in all the land, but I just reached a point where the sound mattered more.
