More pics!

I had a finicky time with the sticker on the P-85 - it was a bit loose in a corner, so I tried supergluing it back onto the throwoff...and the superglue was painful to clean up. I got most of it off though.

Tried it out with the Vistalite kit today and did a lot of comparing between my amber Vistalite snare with the clear Vintage Emperor head and this clear Vistalite snare running a not-so-new coated Vintage Emperor batter.

Since I had both drums essentially tuned the same - medium-low - it was really apparent right away the coated head brings out much more of the snare wire tone while the clear one emphasizes the shell character. Both sound great at that range. (When I received the snare in the mail yesterday, it had a tightly-tuned coated Powerstroke 3 on top, not quite as in the sweet spot for these shells compared to my two-ply/looser tuning preferences)

Waiting for the clear Powerstroke 4 I ordered to arrive as that will be the head I'll try it out with in the sanctuary this weekend.

And now with the Powerstroke 4: short note with a lot of snare tone.
