    Thanks, I can't wait to play them, I want to eventually get pics of all my drums set up, and different combos of them, maybe a whole kit of floor tom like Tommy Lee is running right now ! Or just set them all up as one big 19 piece! Lol!

    But again thanks, and drum on!

    I only run across "lesser quality" kits that peeps are asking $1200.

    Here's the wood hoops to this kit, damaged!

    Should I strip them and repaint, or leave them natural wood- or just leave them alone?

    Straighten metal kick plate or buy new?

    The rest of your kit is starting to look like new (although the shells could stand to receive another polish), so I say: strip, repaint, and replace the hoop protector plate (part number HPP-2).

    Thanks, the bottom tom in the pic hasn't been cleaned yet, or do you
    mean top one too?

    I hope not took 6 hrs to get it looking like that!

    If you have never cleaned. Polished, waxed, ect. Your drum or drums, here the way I do it. Completely remove all hardware, if you don't any wax or polish will leave residue behind & look terrible . Note the small screwdriver ! I never use power tools on my drums. Speed strip a thread anywhere, it will delay putting them back together, drum lays around in pieces...not good. Bottom head is a very handy parts/tool tray. I also leave lugs in hoops until I'm ready to clean hoops! Helps keep track of them as well!

    Is this something I can pic up at guitar center or order through Pearl? What's best?
