Default New pics...Gretsch Catalina Birch w/new floor tom!

Hey guys! I just got around to taking new pics of my set since I have acquired a matching 16x13 tom. The tom originally had a GTS suspension mount on it, but I removed the mount and used the bracket off the mount as well as the brackets off the 8" and 10" toms that I dont use, to add floor tom legs on it. I also mounted the suspension mount for the 14" tom on the bottom...this helps with rim clamping mic mounts. It also helps keep the drum in tune because the weight of the drum is exerting pressure on the lugs and not the hoops as in traditionally mounted suspension mounts. I play mostly rock and blues (big Bonham fan) Here are the specs:

P.S. I know my cymbals are dusty...I clean my drums religiously but I do not clean my cymbals at all

Yeah...I have the mount and backing plate at a metal fabricators shop....they are making a plate for it similar to the yamaha plates I saw on the forum. It i just going to be plain metal...no engraving or anything.
