Yup, big mistake. I don't like the look of the new lugs on the Pocket kit either.All that they had to do was to start offering add-ons for the Safari/Bop series.
I think that they made a mistake by going this route but what do I know?
The only thing that makes sense is packaging a 13" snare drum with a kit that has a 16" bass drum. Hell, even a 12" snare would be OK I think.
Add ons for the Pocket kit? - ugh, whatever. The thing that makes the Safari cool (and portable) is: it's a 4 piece with a 16" bass drum, 10" rack tom, and a shallow 14 x 12 floor tom. That's IT. Stop. It's like the Mini Cooper.....when you elongate it, make it wider, add 2 doors, four wheel drive, raise it up higher, add cargo space....it ain't a Mini anymore!!
Is there a single Safari owner out there that desperately wanted a 12" tom to add to the Safari kit? Anybody? I know I don't....
