          This is a great addition to any drum set but have a some thing in mind:
          1. these are not toms. You have to be creative to be able to blend them into your style of music if you play rock or similars.
          2. They are not loud. Mic them if you can.
          3. I keep them on the stand and carry them like that. Yes, they are bulky, but if you fit them in a duffel bag (with long handles) upside down they are easy to carry.
          4. I put Remo CS dot heads on them as they were the original heads used when these came out. I believe a single ply head matches the nature of the instrument with a more focused and live sound. I find pinstripes a little dull and mostly suited for beginners that don't know how to tune yet.(I've been there)
          5. They can be hard to set in small venues but I re-arranged my cymbal set up and replaced a couple of stands with clamps and arms and now I have a decent space for the rotos. If the hi-hat rod is on the way, cut it. You don't need 20" of rod above your hats. I left only a few inches to use a trick-hat, that's all you need.
          These will not only expand your kit but they will also force you to think outside the box. Great instrument!

          I was quite disappointed for the second time ordering this item. I thought, and gave the benefit of the doubt, to the company; I originally believed that I had a mis-machined plate that caused our difficulty in attaching the drum rack to the hardware stand. I had to send back the whole kit, when I really only needed a 3 inch by 4 inch by 1/4 inch plate sent to me. Anyway, kit re-packaged and sent back. (The return label sticker did not allow for home pick up, and I had to be further inconvenienced and bring package to a UPS facility). I received the replacement Remo Roto Drums and stand - and ended up with the exact same piece of poor workmanship in regards to attaching the actual toms to the hardware.

              Mounting bracket AD10 poorly constructed where it was not machined properly, and therefore, we could not get a tight snug fit to hold the Roto Trac onto the stand. Any hit on the drum caused the bracket to loosen and shift.

              Also too bad replacement parts are not available as I have to disassemble the whole piece to replace a 3 inch by 3.5 inch metal bracket plate!

                  I really like the sound and quality of these toms, they are fun to play. I like to use them in solos best. I do believe they are right in the pocket for Latin songs. The reason I would not recommend them some drummers just do not need them and many rock, blues and other band leaders might just tell you to take them home. I mostly wanted them for fun, however they are much more then a toy.

                      Don't buy these if you think they are the thing. They are neat, sound great, and are absolutely of no use if you can't think outside of the box when playing drums.

                      I play them for a couple of years and then put them away, rinse and repeat. After 20 years of having a set, they are set up right now in my studio and I still find myself enjoying them.

                      There's nothing magical about them, and there's something magical about them at the same time. It depends on your mindset when you're playing.

                      Since I can't truly answer the next question with their yes/no I'll say that I'd tell anyone about them. But I wouldn't call it a recommendation. I'd rather invite them over to hear them and decide for themselves.

                      Proper tuning is the key, but discretion is the better part of valor in playing your kit. As for tuning, the 8" should be between your high tom and your low tom, and the 10" between your low tom and your floor tom, but that's just my perception.

                      Love the sound, mixed by my existing toms. Trying to find something to carry them in though. I might come up with idea to hold the rack more sturdy, also, rather than with the one bolt and washer.

                      I have been behind the drums now for over 38 years, and I must say that the Remo Roto Toms are a wonderful addition to my Tama drum kit. I have them set up in front of my double floor toms where I use them as an added percussion effect while performing a drum solo. Any serious drummer should obtain a set of the 6", 8", and 10" Roto Toms. They're great!

                      Great sound, and great quality. Sometimes I put these in my drum set, and they are a great addition. They are rather bulky, however, and they seem quite fragile. The stand is a bit confusing, but very sturdy nonetheless.

                      Theese toms are amazing theyve lasted me about 4 years and sound great for any type of music the only possible downside i could think of is the fact that they take up a good amount of space on my drumset and are very heavy but they are a great buy. i love to customize the pitch by easily turning the heads. If your looking for three extra toms on your set for a great price that you can basically make sound however you want theese are certainly the toms to get
