Default New to me Tama Swingstar

I picked this up used (my first real kit) with crappy cymbals all around. So, the first thing I did was change the heads to Evans and get the Sabian B8 Super cymbal pack (what a value for the $$$!). So, here are the first shots with it set up in the garage. Next thing I need to get is a runner or rug, then I'll be looking for a new snare with some more pop. Any criticism/suggestions appreciated since this is all new to me.

Nice - good solid kit!

Those cymbals are high, though - are they comfortable to play like that?

They're setup high because, um, well, I'm TALL!



Yes, I like them up that high.

We probably own the same kit model and color. I mean that color is either Gun Metal Metallic or Vintage Silver, if it's the latter, then it's like mine.

Good kit...
