    Goofy or not, when it works it works.

    I loved my 18" ReMix series Breakbeat ride so much I bought another!

    Thanks man. Yeah, I'm looking forward to both uses. I really like the placement on the kit.

    Just picked this up for a gigging kit Last of the World Series kits in Natural Matt Lacquer. 22x16, 12x10, 13x11, 14x12, 16x16. Will strip it down & give it a deep clean but everything is there & working as it should. New heads & good to go

    Pay no attention to the knucklehead who wrote that review. On one hand he lauds their small size (can fit between toms) before calling out their size as not being the smallest. Which is it, an attribute or shortfall? Their mounting system is unbelievably simple and quick to mount on a hoop. What does he mean by ďinstallation?Ē Iíve never used an easier clip on mic mount system, though they wonít clip onto S-hoops because of their unique design. These little mics can take an errant blow from a stick as well. Iíve used these mics for years and adore them.

    I’m glad you are happy with your purchase, but I never understood why someone would choose to play a lower quality instrument than they already have for playing out. Playing shows is showcasing your ability on your instrument. Why would you not want to sound your best?

    Because sometimes we have to kit share & this is for that very purpose If anyone dinged or scratched my Masters when playing then I would not be best pleased. On gigs where I don't have to share then the Masters will always be used

    Because any number of factors in most of the venues we play at will sap the fidelity out of the sound by the time it reaches your audience, not to mention a number of audience members may not notice the difference, either due to 'lack of knowing better' or maybe 'chemical enhancements'. Sure, you can quote the garbage-in/garbage-out concept, but still, why put your quality instrument in a potentially high-risk-of-damage scenario (see Kevaruka above)? Save it for the studio, with the fancy mics that will pick up the difference.

    Now we know why they make cases in those tom sizes that you don't seem much of these days.

    13x11 and 14x12 are floor toms on my kits.

    I double bag them both so I can fit the legs. For example, I put the 13x11 floor tom in a 13x11 case and then put that inside of a 15x13 case so that I can put the floor toms in between (without scratching anything).
