I wish I had know about VLTs when I bought my kit. I got standard shells with re-rings all around. I guess the floors and the bass have the built in bottom though, which is like a 1/2 VLT.
Woa, you love some VLT snares. I have a 13x6 vlt snare. Dig it, but the 14" does allow for more tuning options and playing on the rim sounds awesome and musical for some reason. If I had a chance to do again, I would have gone 14x6vlt.
I understand the vlt tom option. A few years back I got a finish ply vlt kit. The 20" bass was lower than the 22" bass on my standard collectors. So I had to liquidate my exotic kit to replace it with a new exotic vlt/x/vlx kit :p
