Sorry, I just have one pic for now. It's really difficult to crop pictures small enough for this forum...

Another follow-up post.

After being convinced that the Calftone heads were perfect and put them on all my drums, I've run into a problem with my floor tom drumhead. The sound just went flat. Like I was hitting a flat note. No matter how or where I tried to tune it, it wouldn't sound right. I tried everything, even re-tuning and changing the res head, but to no avail. Finally, in frustration, I put the G1 back on, and it tuned right up! No issues!

I've looked over the Calftone, and I can't see any issues, no delamination or separation or anything visible. I can't figure out what happened to it, but there is something definitely wrong. It's to bad, I really was digging the sound.

I can't say I wasn't warned, drumbob did warn me...

Glad you were able to get the sound you wanted with the G1. I still feel that the Calftone is too warm for those thin luan shells and rounded edges. Also, it could have just been an issue with that particular Calftone head. Either way, glad to hear that it's all good now!
