TAMA Rockstar Traps Revised!

I recently got a new front kick with my band's logo on it (courtesy of Evans Inked) and it inspired me to give the whole kit a major makeover. Basically I converted to a 1-up, 2-down configuration, put away my 13" tom and took out my 14" tom (which I haven't used in 10 years) and attached it to a Tama combination stand hanging low. Also bought a Tama single tom mount for more space on the kick and Voila!
