One last thing: the throwoff is a little inadequate. I don't like that you have to tie the wires with string, and once done you can't adjust it without re-tieing. So I replaced the throwoff and butt with an INDE combo. It's adjustable and will fit the mounting holes perfectly. It's also a really cool, lightweight design that perfectly complements the drum. So factor in that extra $60 into your purchase price.
very helpful thanks!
