They didn't have a set of matching tom arms, so I have 3 different brands. Great stock heads, amazing finish that is a subtle burst, and great quality hardware.

My old export 16"x16" floor tom weighed much much less than my new Renown 14x14 floor tom, just to give you an idea.
I got lucky. The guy wanted 900.00. I was patient, waited 2 weeks, he went down to 700.00. When I went to meet him he was an hour late, so he took another 50.00 off. The drums went new from Guitar Center to his house, sat on the floor, never played, to my car. So in essence I got them new at a steal.
