Tom angles!!!!

YouTube's been sending me a lot of Smiths recommendations, undoubtedly due to bassist Andy Rourke's recent passing. Which is how I found myself watching this 1984 live clip, featuring great songs, great playing and most of all, a single killer tom angle/placement.

Not strictly a tom angles post, but I just had to share something I just ran into on my local FBMP.

This poster has taken the toms off the bass drum tom mounts for the picture. But to do so, they disassembled the tom arms at the pivot rather than just loosening the tom mounting bracket.

I wonder where the wingnuts, bolts, washers and springs are... [edit: and this is just the tip of the iceberg, there's plenty of other things a little off about this kit...]

flat angle I can't smank the hump
I can't push it into the ditch..
I need (utilize) that shank (flat stick) crash

as far as the holes I'm well protected
also I only have a couple heavy cymbals- a 2877g Old K 60s 22 and a 3013g K Dark Medium 22-
majority of my cymbals are light/ medium light..
so angle won't (hasn't) hurt em in a mil years
Bronze is tuff

"It's small so perfect for a child. Some things need to be fixed but I've only used it 3 times as I never fully picked up the art of drumming. And my neighbors didn't exactly want me practicing.... So it's been sitting here for a few years. I originally paid 400$ for it. But the replacement part (which are just pieces to add. Not to screw on or anything) is probably like 30$. So 200$ off isn't bad. I want it out asap. Need this room for my office space"
