"Great expansion drums coupled with poorly designed hardware."
The sound is great, and the ability to tune the quickly (even while playing) - and at such various combinations of tunings is great. Really cool idea, and a nice expansion to any drum set.
The quick and easy tuning is great. The mounting hardware is a horrible joke. It completely lacks versatility. While Remo had a great idea with the drums themselves..... they must have used up their ingenuity designing them. The stand that comes with them is very bulky, making it difficult to integrade into a larger set. And there is no easy or affordable way to use this product with a drum rack (as to my experience). The mounting hardware is a waste. If you have the money, buy the roto toms separately and put together your own hardware.
Ease of Use:
Minus the horrible mounting hardware, the drums themselves are very easy to use and tune...... and are a blast.
Like I said above, the drums are great........ the accessories are lacking.
Haven't had to deal with them...... hope I won't have to.
For the money, they're pretty cool.
The Wow Factor:
Worth having, I have always loved the way they sound..... I'm just having trouble with fitting them into my kit. Hardware options would be nice.
Great expansion drums coupled with poorly designed hardware. However cool enough that I am not going to give up on getting them integraded into my kit the way I want them to.
