    Thank you. Small but powerful. I am super impressed with the tone quality of this kit.

    I don't miss my TAMA Silverstar bop kit now.

    Last night the gloves came off. No more mister nice guy. The kit got done up in its new skins and placement in the basement.

    It's now the kit for rehearsal and perhaps gigging. I love this kit.

    I was gonna say, "Isn't that 12" tom supposed to be on a rail mount?" But MDK beat me to it sorta. But I'll be first to say... "Where's the Speed King and accompanying Hat?"
    My first kit was a 60's Ludwig Downbeat (I think...middle lugs?) in silver sparkle and it's nice to see that Keystone Badge looking up from the bass drum!

    I like my virgin BD with nothing attached but a foot pedal. Plus, it's only an 18" so that would force the 12" to possibly sit too low.

    As far as the speedking, etc......BACK ORDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRR a )#$(%*$)#$%(*$#)%(*$#_)#@($*%$#

    Next question, please. lol

    The Ludwig Club date kit had the middle lugs.
