The Mahogany drums sound amazing with the band, the other musicians were surprised at the full sound coming out of this small drum set. The toms are tuned high but still sound full and rich. The 18″ bass drum is tuned low and boomy, the snare is tuned high but still very responsive with a fat crack when you lay into it. Overall the drums have a very warm, woody sound. I feel I can get a jazz and rock sound out of this small kit by simply changing my touch.
