kick and floor is the way to go. i honestly think if i do add more toms, i'll add both my 10 and 12 and mount them off the kick, IF i add more toms at all.

I've been gone at camp for the past week, and just spent the last half hour reading through this thread.

sorry levi, i knew i left out someone haha

Anyways about the "drum-off" my favourite tracks in order are:
Joint First:-
1.ITALOJAZZER (what a track, best track by FAR IMO, just listening to it inspired me, such fun syncopations and really great contrasting rhythms between the sections i love it)
1.Lets Play One 100 (my secret favourite haha again just listening to it inspired me, nice little brush track)

3.Denny's Track
4.Burn the Bridge

The rest are all equal, none of the others really stood out to me apart from calf killa but it stood out because i really didn't like it much.

i was tempted to get a jingle wedge for my 12" snare but got the normal wedge instead.

Barrett-- If you are looking for a sick 14x8, check out Black Panther's Big Cat snare, it's new, i don't know if you can buy it just yet, but it's got a shell quite similar if not the same as the saturn series, and i'm willing to say it probably sounds amazing.

hmm, those are nice choices too.

If you get the Ludwig, would you get it in a matching finish with the kit?

Its the same specs as a groove wedge with 8 little jingles in it.
It is the BEST purchase i have ever made for my kit, sounds killer!
It dampens the snare a wee bit and lowers the overall pitch aswell. It has made me fall back in love with the fiberskyn snare batter. The jingles only sound when the wedge is struck.
I have an E-ring on my snare aswell atm, so i have like a medium pitched tight almost sampled sounding snare.

sjman409 wrote:ah so a cross stick jingles when you use it?

Yes, but for me no, I want to keep my cross-sticks clean.
I am using it as a rimshot enhancer, sounds great, a slightly warmer fuller rimshot sound. It really makes me want to hear some wood hoops, and the tambourine nuance produces quite a sampled "pop" snare sound.
I might do what russ miller does and put both a groove wedge and the jingle wedge on my snare, the groove wedge is cheap but as i absolutely ZERO money i doubt that will happen soon.

Also after playing through the tracks my new favourite is "dennys track" followed by "italojazzer" and "lets play one 100".
Dennys tracks is just so much fun to play to, i don't really play like the wee sample beat they give you at start, i just made up my own stuff.
