    Picked up these off Craig's List yesterday for a great deal (including new Humes and Berg soft cases), and played them at a gig last night. Extremely happy with the sound, not to mention the looks,...

    To those asking about the sizes, they're 20x18, 12x9, 14x14 and 14x5.5.

    I'm not crazy about the floor tom size aesthetically, but it does sound good.

    I might try to find a matching 16x18.

    It took me 6 months to find a matching Masters Custom Extra bass drum to go with my orphan toms.

    I have finally finished assembling my Masters Custom Maple kit. About 6 months ago I picked
    up 12" and 16" orphan toms real cheap ($100). Since then I've been patiently cruising CL, eBay,

    Thanks for the snark, guys (excepting 'empire'). Real helpful.

    I was only wondering thinking maybe the seller didn't realize what he had.

    Use soundcloud.com to upload sound files then post a link to them here. That's the way it was suggested to me to do this.

    BTW, nice color!

    After trying Coated Ambassadors and Clear Emperors as my tom batters, I now prefer Coated Emperors. I use a Powerstroke 3 on the bass batter, and the stock Protones on all the resos.

    But, YMMV.

    It's too bad that we can't attach sound files on this forum. I made an interesting recording of a Masters Custom Extra Maple and a Vision Birch floor tom I'd like you folks to hear.

    Thanks, nova. I'm in New Hampshire, USA.

    I haven't decided on how I'm going to refinish them. They really don't look bad with the Champagne Sparkle. Here' a pic of them cleaned up and in use:

    I picked them up last night. Even though they need cleaning and tuning they sound great. They came with pretty decent Coated Emperors on top and Clear Ambassadors on the bottom.

    I'm not looking to flip them. For now I want to use them with my Vision Birch kit, and later pick up a matching bass (model-wise, not finish). I would also refinish them.
