    Surprised the badges aren't more centered. Looking good though. The satin finish certainly looks nice.

    What Gord said. I've never worked with this kind of rack before. It's not the same as Gibraltar or Pearl. Hopefully it will work out well.

    Do you mean that they're so close to the vent/batter side of the shell?

    Yeah, mine are centered although I have the metal badges and I thought when the Bubinga Elites were still a thing, their badges were centered as well (they were the decal ones). Not a knock on the drums at all, just seems odd with the placement.

    I notice that the badges are consistently favoring the batter edges. When I have a moment, I will take a pic of all the concert toms to show you what I mean.

    Only with my finger. It has a nice tone and resonance. My sticks are still packed in a box somewhere. I just moved. I make a little progress each day.

    Totally understand. I managed to do mine completely sight unseen, but it was not anywhere near as large or complex as something like this...
