It was just a creative title dude - I don't normally call it a "tom-tom", when "tom" gets the point across, but you should know - it's not amateur or craigslisty, rather that is the official name of that particular drum - oh since it was created! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom-tom_drumPlease don't call it a "tom-tom." That's what people on Craigslist call it. It's called a "tom."
Thanks to everyone who replied - I wasnt keen on the color at first and it's something that is still growing on me - but I got great deal on the kit, so saving $1300 makes me somewhat color-blind
