It sounds about 10 times better than that Ludwig junior kit I had!

edit - Lordy, I just perused their website! Some beautiful kits and seemingly reasonably priced!

This is ingenious!!!

It looks like it could fit in the trunk of my compact car. It could be handy sometimes.

With regular toms I'm not sure I find it different enough and having a normal kit already I find things like the Farmer stuff more intriguing,

There are several versions.

Not sure if it really fils a hole in the market, though. When going light and small most people like to customize themselves and depending on the gig. The interesting things are the BD and snare ehich are available separately.

I am always pleased to see small kit configurations, but this one suffers from the same error as many: snare and tom are too mall in diameter. Tom should be 12, snare should be at least 13. Those differences would do little to the overall footprint but would make a massive difference in tone and versatility.

I will always be perplexed by how often manufacturers do small 4 piece configs with a 10 inch tom. Makes no sense. 10 inch toms are for 5 piece configs - that's where they make sense. If it's going to be a 4 piece, a 10 is such a poor choice. A 12 can be tuned like a 10 if desired. A 10 can never be as flexible as a 12.

Spent a long time on a 22, 10, 14 kit. I like the 10" size a lot. It fits in with my concept of tones and attack on various parts of the kit. There are no hard fast rules for what is universally right.

Yes, no rules, but, I stand by my original assertion that in a 4 piece situation, a 12 is a more versatile choice than a 10. When companies do that, those decisions are coming from shaving dollars or the marketing people - "small means we can get away with a 10 here" - not drummers gigging with the result.
