I am transitioning from electronic to acoustic drums. This is my first real snare. It is LOUD. But the tone is fantastic. The tuning range, construction, appearance, and hardware are all top notch. For those of you worried about the P85/P85AC throw-offs, it looks more like a P88 upon inspection. The throw-off is smooth, doesn't loosen up, has detents on the adjustment knob, and looks appropriate for the drum.

Musical Background:

Drum amateur and student, just play at home, for now

Musical Style:

I listen to everything. I like playing rock and blues.
