    Converted this same kit myself about a year ago. It's a perfect candidate as it's a fairly decent quality kit but not expensive enough to worry about converting. The other nice thing is that you can pick up extra toms cheap if you want to add to the kit. Good luck with the conversion!

      Love those sizes for a conversion . I converted a pearl midtown. 16 kick, 10 tom, 13 floor, 13 snare . i added another 10 inch tom as well.my cymbals are triggered Zildjian L80's . Great size for my small apartment. I use a 2box module with some vst' s. I use jman stealth triggers on all my drums and cymbals. They are flawless believe me. Good luck Tivi

        Thank you. What are your triggering systems?

          My current triggers are the stealth internal single side mounts for all my drums including the kick. And for my cymbals a three zone ride for and a few dual zone crashes. With my Roland Td9 rocker and Td 30 kits, I used Stealth crossbar center cone triggers. I know J man has recently released a 6 piezo internal trigger system, 3 head and 3 rim. Definitely on my radar. I am retiring in a month and a half so I will have time to focus more on my kit and GAS, lol!

            You had me at TAMA.... My first kit was a Rockstar back in Ď91... Today Iím converting my Starclassic Performer B/B kit into a hybrid setup. As much as I respect all of the other brands out there, thereís just something near and dear to me when it comes to anything with a TAMA logo on it.

                Because the logo is part of the air vent, Iím not so sure... you could always crimp and remove the air vent rivet, then heat the logo shield with a hair dryer to soften the glue and remove with a plastic scraper... Just be careful to no damage the shell or the shield when pulling it off.

                Then wrap, re-apply the shield, and finish the air vent with a jack plug adapter. Itís definitely a more permanent approach to the conversion, but as long as you intend on keeping the kit a hybrid / eDrum setup then itís more than fine.

                    I used a countersink bit in my electric drill. Use the countersink on the inside part of the air vent until you remove the edge of the vent. Be careful not you go past the vent edge and into the wood. Once you remove that inner edge of the vent, it will slide out with the badge. You can then re-wrap the tom and re-inset the vent with the badge. Looks like new from the outside.
                    Good luck!

                      I made my own center mount triggers with parts from HD and Amazon for about $8 each. But I bought foam cones on Ebay for $22 each because it seemed to be the most difficult component. So far, they are working great. I even built my own cymbal triggers for L80s and they work nice too.
