This drum has such great tone, and the quality is outstanding. The hand hammered finish on the drum is gorgeous and the picture does not do it justice. You would pay $600 or more from other name brands in drums for a drum of this quality. This thing cuts and has amazing tone and projection. Sounds great at all tunings, and could be used with almost any style of music. You will not be disappointed, it is heavy and durable! You will want to replace the heads that come on it, like most brands its a cheap head. I used Evans Genera Dry HD and it sounds amazing. If you want to chill out the loud metal overtones just throw on some moon Gel and it sounds fantastic.
