I have owned Meinl Marathons, Toca Pro Lines, and now these Tycoons.
The Tycoons have a very classic high pitched timbale sound, but were tuned a bit too high for my taste right out of the box. I dropped them a step and they started sounding just fine.
Compared to my Toca Pro Lines the Tycoons do not have a very deep tone, but have a much more classic cascara sound.
I prefer the fuller mid tone sound from my Meinl Marathons, but the lugs are better designed not to catch the sticks on cascara strikes with the Tycoons and the cascara sound is just as good on the Tycoons if not better than the Meinl's.
The cowbell is disappointing because it is not really a cha cha or salsa sound and in no way a mambo or rock cowbell. It is very ringy and in no way pleasing. I can only compare it to an even worse version of a LP aspire timbale cowbell.
No problems in the quality except you do not get any lug thread oil with it, and the tripod has a slight wobble due to nylons washers used on the tripod attachments.
Shell quality and heads are just fine, and for the price they work for my needs with gigging locally.
BTW, this is my 2nd Amazon prime order that has been delivered over 3 days late on a guaranteed 2 day.
In all, if you want a very typical sounding set of affordable timbales. These will do the job once you replace the cowbell.
