I bought this set about 3 months ago and I have to agree the kick drum sounds fantastic and the hardware and finish is very nice. As far as tunining the drums, well that is a different story. the 10 inch and my 14 floor tom sound like crap. I tried several different heads and even called the Gretsch tech team, they just sound like crap. I have to use zero rings, moon gel (thinking duct tape as well). If those people who say they sound good can let the rest of us know what type heads I used evans g1 g2 coated g2 and no deal. They sound terrible in a room and when I mic them it just gets worse. Please help if you can, I tried to take them back and they want to give me concidierabley less and they wont sell on craigs list either. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate if you could even email me at dm3008@roadrunner.com. I am at my witts end. Other than taking a loss and getting a different brand, not sure what else I can do.
