        Power toms - The glory days of drumming. Being stuck in the 70's and 80's, I love retro kits.

          Yep big toms, who said size did not matter. Back in the 70s, 80s, my toms were 13 x 8, 14 x 10 mounted and 16 x 16 floor. Roger Taylor likes um big

            Very nice kit. Nicko loves the power tom too. And me too.

              Meant to say 13 x 10, 14 x 12 even better, then 14 x 14 and 16 x 16 floor.

                cool.. with those deep toms, they usually go to 20" kick ..(or is it trick of the eye and 22 looks smaller$)
                had 24" kick in my twenties, same thing with the toms.. (it's 'getting used to', ofcourse..)

                  Nice drum set! Nothing wrong with kits from the 80s and 90s. Here’s my Premier XPK from the 90s I refurbished. These shells are thick three ply: birch, eucalyptus, birch. 22” bass, 16” floor and 12” mounted tom. The snare is a vintage Chrome over Steel from that era.

                    I had a Premier kit I bought in the 70's. I played it for 20+ years. Big toms, die cast steel chromed rims, flush feet on all the stands and loads of power. The twin tom mount on top of the kick drum had a strut that went all the way down to the kick drum shell at the bottom to make it extra stable. Good for supporting the big toms.

                      I had to sell them last year. My Tinnitus did not handle it well. Even with good plugs vibrations can still cause issues. Anyhoo I got a Strike Pro SE few months back. (volume control ect) I like the fact that set up with the 3 toms up 1 FT down replicates the same set up I had with the TAMAS.

                        I think Tama's have been very under rated over the years, I've always liked the punch you get from them.
