I went to High School with a keyboard player who was amazing. He went to Berklee, taught at Berklee...opened a studio with a friend and gigs and records around town.

Last year he told me he wanted to add a mini bass drum to the DW Low Boy/hats he bought so he can accompany himself percussively. I got the 'stuff' a gifted floor tom into a bass and he was thrilled.

I thought that was the end of it....but the feedback he's gotten is so great he asked me to help him get two more bass/floor toms done.

At the time I couldn't find any good used toms so I asked Lane Kennington to make the shells and got hardware from DFD (I had some heads and the ISS mounts).

The drums look and sound great. Price was a bit more than I expected...but I don't think he could have gotten anything new (let alone FG) from any of the major manufacturers.

Both are 16x10. I deliver them tonight.

These are adorable. Obviously, they'd look sweeter with wood hoops & claws, but I love stuff like this. FG=these are fiberglass?
