    Sounds like you made a good choice. I don't believe that the sessions were coming with Superhoops on them at this time. Either way, if your going to switch to mastercast hoops, it's not going to matter. The color of the tom is Artic White BTW. Also, if your changing hoops, you might want to change the tension rods to the stainless steel rods. Your masters, depending on if you have an MMX or MCX will determine which tension rods you have. Which lugs are on the tom now? The Prestige Session Elite's came with a 3 piece high tension style lug design. If the drum is the newer version, it would have split lug design and come standard with the IMS mounting system. The Session Elite's never came with Optimounts as these particular series pre-date the Optimounts. However, later series Sessions did have Optimounts.

      Ok, sorry, I had to tweak my computer to see the picture of the tom. It's the same exact series that I have in Artic White. The only thing that I don't understand is the the missing hole in the drum for the tom arm. These drums pre-date both the IMS and the Optimount systems. The drum currently has the IMS mounting system on it. The hoops look to be the standard 1.6mm hoops. Swap out to the mastercast hoops with stainless rods and add an Optimount, assuming your kit has all Optimounts on it already. If it's a killer deal price wise, then go for it. However, if you keep an eye on ebay, you can often find what you need in the same series you already have. But if it's cheap, you really can't go wrong.

          Wow, this person is misinformed. He has that 10" tom I have been looking for. I sent an email but I don't think they will split it up. His asking price is absolutely insane and he'll never see it. Anyway, thanks for the link.

                          Hey everyone,
                          It's been a while since I have been on the forum. I have been busy with life as it were. Great looking sessions have been added since I was on last. Very cool.

                            My new touring kit

                            For the last 7 years I played behind Sonor Drums. Recently, I bought a set of Session Elite Drums for a very low price, too good to pass up! They were so dirty from storage, it took me a week to remove the hardware, and polish the shells. I saw the potential that laid underneath the dirt. The sizes are 22 kick, 10, 12, 14, 16 hanging toms. I placed new Evans heads all around the kit. The first night I played them live, it sounded like a thunderstorm coming out of the P.A. I could not believe what I was hearing. It was a REAL drum kit for the first time. I fell in love again. Even my band noticed the difference. Now, my Sonors are packed up and put away. I brought this kit back to life, and now it has brought me back to life on stage. Hope you enjoy the different views. Thanks for stopping.

                              Great story man---REP for bringing that kit back to life, it looks like new to me. I absolutely love the reso with the samurai in his war helmet on it.

                                New to the Drumming World!

                                Hey everyone I'm new the the drumming world but now addicted! I found a set of Artic White session elites on craiglist for 350 and bought them but I wasn't sure of what I bought till I found this forum. So Thanks everyone for getting the Elites the respect they need! You all have very nice kits from what ive seen on here so far and would like to display my starter kit!
