I have a set that came without the YESS mounts, and later I added a 16" tom that did have the YESS mounts. The 16" certainly had sustain and/or resonance for days, but I didn't have a non-YESS tom to A/B compare it with. Later I took the YESS mount off and put legs on it.

I have never had any complaints about my drum sound for not having YESS; they are great drums that, when properly tuned, sound thousands of dollars better. I don't think you will be disappointed as long as the kit is structurally sound, in round, and the edges are still okay.
