The pictures don't really do justice to the real thing, but trust me when I say they are utterly and entirely beautiful works of art!

Tom-tom 10" x 8"

Sound clips ohoy! Here's some shoddy playing after a week's break. The cymbals are the same as in the pictures, plus a Meinl Byzance 16" Thin crash and a Paiste Signature 10" splash. I used just an SM57 to record the whole kit, and added some reverb for some color.
