Thanks! Glad you like the kit. I changed the toms around a month or so ago because I tend to use the 12 more than the 10 and I like it in that position. For fills, like triplets, that I start with my right hand I like having the 10 on the right. It took some getting use to, but I think I'll keep it this way.

very nice, I like the fact that you have really thought about it and came up with a configuration that you like. I love that about this instrument.

Thanks Aron!

I bought Pro-M leg brackets and legs and mounted them myself. The parts cost about $150. It requires some measuring and drilling, so you have to have the stomach for that. Measure twice drill once...It took me about 5 hours to complete the project. I think they turned out excellent. Everything went very well.

Thanks! Let's just say that I've spent many years trying different things. I know what I like and I think I've learned what a good value is. I'm happy with my choices.

I have the same hybrid x trash crash, oh my god, that cymbal is insane! I thought they were full of crap when I heard it was trashier than a Sabian ozone, but it is, actually it's alot thrashier.

I love the Hybrid-X for trashy accents. The 15" Mist-X Jungle Trash Crash is very cool for accents as well. It has more sustain because of the jingles on it.
