they look fine to me. besides, you have to be comfortable with your toms, and the comfortable position is diffeent for everyone. You can play like keith carlock whose toms are flat and low, or like nicko, who almost has to jump to reach his toms.

they look good, as a matter of fact. tho, ur pics might be a little tilted. To quote Billy Ward, make everything 'easy to reach'within your style of playing.That has a lot to do with it.How ur arms and body move naturally.

I agree. This is your kit and it has to feel good to you. As long as your playing doesn't suffer from the drum's positioning-have fun!!

Yes, those are fine and look easily playable, as others have said it should really only matter to you what you think of your drums, not others.

Is that a Ludwig Accent? The lugs look like it.

Looks good, I usually have them angled like that or maybe slightly less. Is that a Tama Swingstar?

Well I find it harder to play with a big tilt in your toms.

I think the person really should determine the tom angles. For my kits, I try to get my toms as flat as possible, but a lot of times that is really hard with deeper toms, and such. So I would say whatever fits that person.

I sit kina low to work with foot pedals, but I like my toms lower and flat to fit in with my kits.

That's my take.
