Just balance things a bit - a few negatives:
1. Due to the tube lugs, heavy duty spurs and tom mount, the bass drum is quite heavy. Also, the minimum depth of 16" helps to make it awkward to lift/move around.
2. I found the rims rusted easily. I replaced them with American made rims.
3. The original die cast snare drum hoop choked the drum. A triple flanged hoop much improved the drum.
