Is it stable when fully loaded?
quite stable actually. I was highly impressed by the entire thing. Well constructed, strong hardware, it comes with 2 tom arms to accommodate different holders. The u bar can be moved fore and aft along the legs to meet anyone's needs.
If you don't have a lot of space and are looking to reclaim some floor area, I highly recommend this. You can kind of see it here in my POV pic. It's holding the 12" tom, the ride and the 16"crash.

Arrived today! NIB, NOS , 6.5x14 Tama Starclassic bb. Unboxed ( decently packed), and checked finish and hardware and inside of shell by peering though the reso head. Everything looks perfect , but I’ll pop the heads and check bearing edges and tune and tap on Monday .
Some work to do and preparing and getting ready for a new puppy in the house Sunday, so it’ll have to wait . These quick cell phone shots don’t do it justice ( I need forum member @cbphoto to take pics ).
The molten brown burst lacquer literally glows in the sunlight like molten lava !

That is one GORGEOUS snare drum!!! I have serious snare envy! (Fortunately it will pass)
Very nice indeed.

Thanks man , I really do love this finish . Can’t wait to dig into it ! Then set the kit back up
( been packed away for a few months) , as I was doing some remodeling. Never really got a chance to Dig into the kit fully either . Need to grab a HH stand, a new throne , a ride, and a crash or two . Eventually a double pedal also . Never really learned.

I, also, have wanted some Roto Toms since the first time I saw them in a store, many years ago...which is why I just bought some. :) :D
They were priced so I could flip 'em and not lose anything, I think. For now, I'm enjoying them lots. :)




Remo also has a 6,8,10 set w/stand, for sale for 250 at the EVIL Guitar Center, and their EVIL TWIN SISTER Musician's (probably frolicking with yer best) Friend.
Amazon has 'em too, but WAY MORE $
Man I tell ya, I've been wanting Rotos since I was a teen 35 years ago. I started searching, ALWAYS SO PRICEY. I love them, but I was not willing to pay the price for used Remo rotos. I just saw a 12" Remo roto with no stand going for $300. Nutbags, who's gonna pay that?

I don't think they sell out quickly. I could have purchased them multiple times this year, just didn't.

You should get you that nice computer for recording first! (y) :cool: And then the next day buy the rotos 👀:LOL:

I bought this little Qn2 4k Zoom camera. Frankly I am having a lot of fun with it so far, it's capable of recording drums, the microphone on it is impressive. I think it was a suggestion from @cbphoto originally as a low price solution for recording.

-->I think this is it.



PROS:
Controls are fun to use, surprisingly good microphone, works with super inexpensive NIMH AA 1.2 batteries, it has a recording volume and a couple of interesting fields of view, decent and useful 30 frame per second @ 1080p or 720p, ok video quality in bright rooms or outside.

CONS:
Files are literally HUGE 2m30 sec of recording at 4k and 60FPS = 1.7 gb, a real joke, 1080p @ 60 FPS files are way too large also. You need a computer with a good processor and cooling system to encode the videos in H264, H.256 etc (Fortunately I have that). Obsolete USB 2.0 file transfer, surprisingly low quality camera, it can't handle low light without adding an overwhelming amount of noise, the camera is a bit too expensive.

It has more CONS then PROS but the pros are winning, I love it. especially for the microphone capable of handling high amount of decibels.

(;
Zooms are so cool. I've always wanted one.
60 fps might be overkill. If you can shoot in 30p the files will be much more manageable.

I'm glad you picked one up. As mentioned, the video quality isn't great but the audio is surprisingly good. Were you able to find it at L&M?

I made a mistake first 60FPS is at 1080, not 4k but It's useful. For instance If you want to take snapshots of a slow motion video in VLC player for, the video at 60 FPS is more suited then the one at 30fps to do that, that's the only reason why I would use 60 Fps, otherwise yes 1080 30fps is more then enough. (;

I am very happy with the little camera.

Nice Crash cymbal you have there, I like the color too.

In good light condition, it's still beating my old Sony HDD camcorder which must be +-8 years old and probably around HD 720p, for me it's a major improvement nevertheless. I bought the cam on Amazon.ca simply, they had plenty in stock 1 week before Christmas.

They still have it in stock today.
