Looks can be deceiving! It's definitely a "player's" kit and snare. I call this my "looks pretty until you get close" kit. Well actually, I haven't ever called it that before right now, but it's fitting.

Thats in great shape for a 70's too. We ve touched on this before, but does the "rims" mount make a *huge* or *minor* difference in the resonance of that tom?
The couch is VERY comfy. I've never come across a more comfortable couch! Many of my friends say the same about it. My wife doesn't like the look of it, so it stays in the basement...

Yes, the RIMS-imitation mount makes a HUGE difference in this particular case. Having the tom mount on the shell significantly cut down on the resonance, so I took it off. Now, there's a spot on the tom (above the snare, in the picture) where there's a couple of holes and a nice section of finish (from being under the mount all these years). I keep that part facing me.

Classy looking and the Rims mount on the tom is a sweet touch.
The silver and gold doesn't really thrill me together, but the people I gig with don't seem to mind. They just see a bunch of sparkles, and it's all good! Once they hear the kit, though, that's when the bricks start dropping...

Thanks for the compliments, guys.
