What may have struck you as odd about the toms is the 14 off to the left of me, rather than having it sit next to the 16. Well, the 14" tom is more or less transitory -- I'm hoping that over Christmas break I can scrounge some money to get a some auxillary percussion to replace it. I'm considering either a TomBourine, or something close to that.

The ebony heads are okay, but I'm thinking of moving them to the resonant side and going the route of coated ambassadors on the batter side. This isn't to say that they're bad heads, because they do produce rich, dark tones. But I'm starting to look for a warmer sound. Plus, without black hardware, the ebony heads throw off the look of a "black on black" kit.

Yeah it is! I got it for a steal too -- 150 USD!
It was a floor model, and had been played on the showcase kits so I was able to get it for such an amazing price.

It's okay for jazz, provided you're gentle with it. It's bright, washy, and has a lovely bell for accents. Personally, I'm a funk drummer at heart, so it's perfect for my particular application. I also play Jazz with it, but as I said.. I'm very gentle with it so it doesn't wash too too much. When I venture into heavier rock, I have a low-end Paiste ride that I use for projection and volume purposes. Plus, I wouldn't dare risk damaging my Bosphorus -- it's my baby!

How's that snare? Those things seem to be all over the place. They seem like a great value.

Yeah, they're pretty awesome, especially for the pricetag. My friend has the same one on his kit and he tunes his really tight. However, I leave mine a little more loose, especially on the wires, and it gives me the perfect 'second-line' type buzzrolls while still retaining the piccolo sound. The rimshots are absolutely cutting, regardless of wire/head tension, but there are some overtones, which as you can see I have cut out with moongels and a damping ring.

Overall, it's an excellent buy, and the only snare I'd rather play on than this would have to be a Pork Pie Little Squealer.
