    Default New to me RP owner

    I sold my kit in 1981, a couple months ago picked up a nearly new RP 3pc kit and could not be happier. Since then I added another mounted tom and a few cymbals. I am amazed with the sound of these, the subtle tunability, they are rich! I am loving the sizes too 20x16, 14x14, 12x8, 10x7

    Those smaller toms always look like they have sleigh bells attached to them.

    The STL-100 "mini" lugs look a lot nicer than the stock swivel tube lugs.

    Regardless, your Reference Pure kit is really nice! Nice sizes, right Justin?!

    I'm not sure advantages / disadvantage to the resonant kick head other then for a mic? But I've no plan to mic it. Clear mad batter . I m not a heavy hitter at all but similar to what I find with the toms it sounds great (better?) the harder its hit.

    Thanks, Honestly had a lot of trepidation. 50/50 thought I would play 'em once realize that was a long time ago... I'm living in the past... yada yada. And sell them. That's not been the case more the opposite. I play when ever I can (leave work early when I can) picked up a pad since i travel some for work. Actually took a couple lessons. Again i thought a waste but more trying to match it.

    I think buying such a good sounding kit has a lot to do with it. Even though I sound bad the kit doesn't. That makes it more fun to play.
