Steve - I notice you have the air-cushioned feet on only one of your floor toms. Why not both? And... do you notice a difference in their sound/resonance because of the feet? I know I do. Any drums I put the air-cushions on, just sounds worlds better than before.

John

PS - Try em on the bass drum too! All my bass drums -sing- because of those feet.

I use the feet for gigging but for pictures and display purposes I have a set of legs that have original style feet. Obviously I should've took the feet off when I took this pic. The kit is a 3 ply but the second floor tom is a 4ply with a different BDP pattern. I sold it to a fellow in need of a BDP GW floor tom.

I don't care for Earthtone heads. I tried them once, not my cup of tea.
