very nice finish and I love those sizes...I would prefer the floor tom to have legs though but still a great set!
Edit- Yes it does have legs

I believe it does... I see a bracket in the last picture.
In any case, that is a nice finish and a nice set.

Thanks for the comments... Honestly the finish was one of the things that made that set stand out to me.
I really like the heads, they're really tough.And they have a really deep, muffled sound,
virtually no overtones, which is what I like... It all depends on taste I guess.

That's a great looking finish! Enjoy your kit!
