Thanks for posting pics buddy. You can't go wrong with the Tobacco Burst Fade... they are so pretty. Just one question. Why the random hi hat stand in the 1st pic.. lol?

Nice kit, nice top (rugby union is the best sport in the world) and nice tag at the end (few of us Christian drummers around).

Just a question, you have moved ur toms to the left and i really the look of it to play but how much does it push your hi-hat way off to the left as well?
I personally want my toms where yours are but also a nice tight hi-hat at a 10 o'clock to a 11 o'clock position.

What do you mean by tight, really close to the snare? to be honest i haven't moved the hi-hat stand at all to where i usually have it but the 10" tom is quite close to the hi hats. If you wanted it real close in the "10/11 O clock position" then i'd suggest moving the toms back further away from you or move the toms to the right so they are more over the bass drum. I would strongly suggest moving your toms over it only costs a little for the clamp and it makes my playing so much more solid in my licks.

Btw the random hi-hat stand is what the toms are mounted on, i know it sounds weird but it frees up the position of my crash.

Yer, really close to the snare. I've got the clamp as all my toms are clamped with 1 up and 2 down at the mo but i sometimes 'forget' about the second floor tom. But when i do gig, its always 1 up and 1 down so doesn't really matter.

Nice kit, those cymbals don't do it justice.
