Does the actual rototom move up and down as well?It's a Roto-tom attached to the shell for quick pitch changes (and snare effects if you're so inclined.) They also had Vari-Pitch toms, same idea but with a deeper shell and no reso, basically concert toms.
Unfortunately, it's pretty useless as a snare, but it's a nice collector's item.

Wow! I remember going to a school concert back in 1978 and the drummer had one of these in white with one bass drum. At the ripe old age of 12 I was already familiar with Roto-Toms, so I thought these sounded a lot fatter than shell-less roto-toms. But it still wasn't as cool as a Ludwig Octa-Plus!
The spokes of the Roto-Tom are heavy, so the drum is a bit weighty, mostly top-heavy.I bet it's a heavy snare and kit with all the hardware? What does it sound like-I know a snare but you know what I mean?
Wow nice kit and gift to yourself-you get to play at work? That would be the best job ever!!!!
