Had to face up to the fact that I have to work on my feet. Stripped away all the distractions (I guess toms are distracting). Hopefully one step back for two steps forward.

That said, this diminutive set up is a lot of fun.

Lovely two piece!

Over the years I’ve spent more time at the “beach” with a bikini than any other configuration.

Really all I need.

Yours is pure class.

Although it's the same cymbal setup I've had for the past 30+ years (except for the second ride), I've spent the past five or so years completely overhauling the specific cymbals in it, and I'm finally finished (I think ;)). All Zildjian:

I bought these heads in the mid 80's when they were a new idea and guys were using them in the studio. Call me a hoarded but I remember thinking "these damn things are indestructible maybe I should keep em, ya never know. Well today I found em, Cleaned em up and baddabing. Thud, thud and thud. I guess they're still made but why buy new ones when you have a 40 year old set?
I'll no doubt be tired of them in a few days but still. For jptrickster. LOL!

Oh man. I always thought the same stuff that was in blue Evans Hydraulics was this stuff (at least they sort of sounded the same):
