Looks sick. I thought a skull wrap would be cheesy too, but then I saw it on the drums and thought it was crazy. Those skulls are unique too. Definitely not cheesy.

thanks guys. I really went all out on this one. polished all the hardware with kick n brass and a toothbrush (worked great as you can see) , lug lubed all the lugs, replaced the floor tom feet with pearls isolation feet, mounting the toms with rims mounts, and replaced all the washers with tama black nylon washers, When i got the kit it had no resonant head on the bass drum and the claws and t-rods were missing. so I come in to work 2 days after i bought the kit and there are 2 extra packs of brand new tama bass drum claws and tension rods from a birch bubinga kit sitting there. nedless to say i was amped
I think they are a bit cheesy. but i love them. I'm spray painting the bass drum hoops right now........................ time to do another coat

I just finished the bass drum. Its almost ready to go. I'm still waiting on the rims mounts to mount the toms, and i need another cymbal stand. I picked up an axis single pedal and colored the logo in with black enamel (aka nail polish) so the black and silver would match the set. I really wanna set it up and tune it. Hopefully my mounts will be here soon.
