That's a beauty-what's the depth of the 12 in tom-looks really deep? Which is nice-more wood to drool over lol. What's with the 10 in so far away-you play it like that or is it just out of the way? No bother I think it was an optical illusion-that's works better than I'm old and can't see crap.

Thanks all. It has been fun putting this family together. And really digging the B/B punch and tone.

KamaK, Hofmobiliendepot, eh? Thanks, man. I enjoy seeing and playing them in natural light.

Grippa, it"s a 12" x 10", just right - pretty hefty growl for a little guy. No illusion, the 10" is occupying the space of my second snare. My preference is one up and two down and my quest continues for the near/match 16" FT - have not played a 10" for a while, and, as discussed on the "excite you?" thread, I'm trying something new. Kind of digging the high (high) tom, and location - been playing there today. Tried hanging both 10 and 12 over the kick, haven't been there for a while and the height wasn't working for me. Going to give this a try with my band tomorrow.

man that is a nice kit. I've always liked BBs. I'm hoping to get one some time.

Terrific drums and gorgeous finishes.
Give Dale's Drum Shop in Harrisburg, PA a call. They are a huge Tama dealer and could help with the 16.

I'm impressed that you found enough orphans in that finish to put a whole drum set together. Well done man. Beautiful drums.

Thanks guys. Toms skinned yesterday with VE clear over clear Ambassadors and oh boy, really very pleased with the tone of these drums.

JB, good call on Dale's - hoping to find one before special order. Would hate to see one after order and before delivery 4 months from now. Tough spot here, but hoping a good deal surfaces soon.
