yeah, i need a real tom mount, if you notice in the pictures the tom is mounted off a boom arm :P. in the past i have done weird mounts like that, one time i put a drum stick in one of my claps and put my old splash mounted on the stick because i didnt have enough hardware to properly mount it.

Identical to the one he was selling recently, white evans reso and all.
If so, I'm jealous!

I was going to ask you about that tom mount, I actually used a cymbal boom arm to make my 13" tom level with my floor tom on my right hand side. Kind of shaky, but it worked.

That kit is pretty hot, just what I'm looking for in my next kit, even to the Silver Sparkle finish. Could we get a 'drivers seat' picture?

Great deal on the Renoun Mod! My local shop has one sitting on a shelf that is just calling my name! Any more kits and I will be couch bound!
