Thanks. It had Remo Ambassadors on top/bottom and some were tight. Recently switched to Evans 360 G2's on the top and Evans 360 Clear Resonant on the bottom. They fit a little better. Good sounding head combination too.

Here's a couple pictures of my son using the kit during a local talent competition two weeks ago. The Blue Glass was brilliant under the stage lights.

Yes, there's still a use for roto-toms. He only used brushes to get a timbale type sound effect. If you look close, you can see a piece of the brushes flying off. After the performance, they went back to the dark corner of the basement.
