My last post was me in crisis mode over this drum shit. Obviously. Things are better now. I have everything done but my kick, and they look incredible, but more importantly, they tuned up fine and sound great. That laid my fears to rest instantly. I still am concerned about my kick, but I am now optimistic that it will be fine. Amazing what 24 hours or so will do for you.
I took a couple of pics, but they don't do the kit justice at all, so I'll take some more and post them then. Yesterday I was upset and 75% happy with this whole thing. Today I am optimistic and around 90% pleased. If the kick drum turns out well, then it's all good. Indeed.
