This has been my main kit since around 2005 when playing with the tribute band Repeatles. I have played hundreds of gigs with this kit. It is a great sounding kit. I have a Shure BETA 52A microphone installed with a Kelly Shu mount inside the bass drum. The cable goes out through the Keystone Badge, so no holes have been drilled.
I always play with only one tom up. For periods I use the 12" and for others the 13".
