    Thank you very much, everyone. I absolutely love my kit and it's an absolute blast to play. I can't wait to get some better resonant heads on it to really bring out their proper sound.

    Thanks! I sit angled away from the kick as opposed to facing straight forward and twisting my foot, so the toms being offset like that are how they're most comfortable and natural for me to play.

    I've got the five piece kit with 20", 14", 12" and 10", and I can carry the kick and all three toms at once with no problem. They're quite light, and I would even say that the 14" x 14" floor tom is...

    1. Did you get support from a parent or guardian?
    So very much. They got mad when I *didn't* practice and were taking me to open-mic nights when I was eleven.

    My first set was a cheap CB with the included "hardware" package, complete with the bloody atrocity they had the audacity to call a kick pedal. It was flimsy, wobbly, had absolutely no action in it...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like that version. The drastic changes in tempo are just painfully jarring.

    I have my kick facing the audience square on, but that doesn't mean that I do, too. I physically cannot play like that, so I'm facing a little more towards stage right. As a result, I have my toms...

    Thanks for the input, guys. Funny you all should mention the Sessions since that was the other kit I was looking at when I was shopping around, but the Decade's were the more affordable route for me....

    I would love to have those, but $200 for a pair is unfortunately a bit steep for me. This is going to be something I'll have to save for regardless of price.
