thank you...yes, i'm a "nit-picker" when it comes to having clean equipment! i used to get harassed by my band members all the time saying that i keep a level and a feather duster in my stick bag! HA!
before i bought these ludwigs, i owned (no longer *tears*) a tama starclassic kit that had 9x10, 10x12, and 11x13" rack toms. i could never get them really low without them hitting the bass drum, so i would sit up higher which really bothered me. i sent the toms out to get cut down an inch or so, which i was happy with once i got them back. when i ordered this kit, i went with the conventional sizes on the toms. i love having my ride cymbal where it is...i don't think i will ever change that as far as in my setup.
