At 4:40 of this video clip provided by Gear Gods and from their "RIGGED" series, Nick Pierce, 2016 Drummer of Unearth shows off his Tama Starclassic Performer Bubinga/Birch 4 pc Shell Pack Transparent PS42S. "Tom sizes are 10, 12, 16, and 22x20 kick." "Great sounding drums. The mix of the bubinga and birch gives it a great pop. The initial attack right off of the drums is incredible. They're perfect for metal. However they engineered these things, they did it for just what I do.It's an incredible sounding kit. They are really big sounding. They have a real quick sustain. They get into the mix and get out right when you want them." "So, for heads on the drums I'm using Evans EC2's for batters all across the top and then on bottoms I'm using Evans G1's. For the Snare drum, that's a Tama SLP 13x7 G Maple Snare. I've got an Evans Hybrid on top.more

The Evans ECS2 are 2ply heads with an internal dampening ring which gives a controlled focused attack, but still allowing the fundamental tone to shine with just enough sustain without too many of the unwanted overtones. These heads are roughly the equivalent of the Remo Pinstripes, however, I've found the Pinstripes to be too dull and dead sounding. I like to tune my drums towards the lower end but to still have resonance and sustain and not sound too thuddy. These ECS2's offer a wider tuning range than the pinstripes and are my favorite heads I've played with to date. On top of that all, they're also easy to tune!
