Good video. But not using the same heads on all drums really is moot !!

There really wasn't much difference in the tone of all those drums.

In a live gig situation, I doubt anybody in the audience would have heard a difference in any of these kits.

And not for anything, but that MIJ sounded as good as any of those other kits and it looked a lot cooler in that wrap than the others. So much for MIJs being firewood...

Ha! Most numb brained, tone deaf audiences wouldn't notice a difference if the drummer was using pots and pans.Eye Ball

that's where individuality comes in.
These drums are all tuned to that "one sound". That One sound" is flat. Make em flat. If you flatten 18 brands of tire; take the air all out; you have 18 flat tires.

Pump em full of Air (TENSION the Drums) THEN you'd get the differences.

The above is in, the Wayne and Garth style , (way? no way) school of drumming.
There's so much commonality among you tube in nearly every video demo.

Like stuck in Rock 1972.

wait. is the same snare being used for every one of those? double triple insanity

Gretsch, Ludwig, Slingerland, Rogers, Premier, Sonor.
are the six brands of vintage should have been used. A set each from 1967-1972 time Frame.
Tension the Heads. Play better. Make the toms ring. And you'd hear differences.

The whole Internet youtube Drum world is 80% Waynes World; Spinal Tap.
That hasn't moved past 1971 Atomic Rooster..and is determined to stay stuck in one spot.
Total disservice. Afraid to Tension drums. believe there's but one sound. Sad.

Then they'll cut a hole in the front head and muffle it on top of that. Sad.
I think it's a fear of jazz that holds them from ever getting better.

And I don't mean Joe Morello. I mean Ornette Coleman. A deep dive into jazz. These drum demos (80% on youtube) (mycymbal, dcnh and the like) are all the the 2ft.- 4ft. wading pool of drumming.
