I was quite surprised that this drum didn't sound the greatest with OEM gear out of the box. With all the hype and marketing around the S.L.P. drums. I got this drum to sound amazing but it still required the usual tricks, gimmicks and customizing like any other drum. 1. Trust me, if you buy this drum your gonna need to replace the factory heads with heads to shorten it's sustain. This drum is CRAZY loud. You hear everything! Clear as crystal, it's perfections and imperfections. 2. Swap out the OEM snare wires for the pure sound equalizer. Everything else I had to do, is a question of taste and subjective. But if you're serious about owning this drum. Those above two items are a must in my opinion.

Thisis a very warm drum real presence. It's very loud. It carries a very rich and fat tonal attack. Because of this be aware that you may need to change up the factory heads and snare wires immediately after purchase depending on what sizeof room you are in. I have a very small practice room and I was unable to eliminate a horrible after buzz withthe OEM starclassic snare wires. Also seriously consider immediatly upgrading to a 2 ply batter head and a 5mil reso head, this cut down the sustain on the tone and made the fore mentioned after buzz almost instantly dissapear inthe same small quarter. With some patience and a bit of aftermarket peices this drum is absolutely fantastic and I am really diggin it!
