Weiss Roto's

Comments:

I replaced the OEM batter heads, with Evans Black Chrome double ply. With minor adjustments you can tune the bad boy's in a second! I've have had the Remo roto's before, and I notice a bit of a difference in mounting and tuning that Weiss has figured out in design.It's a welcome addition add-on for sure!

Good toms

Comments:

Awesome toms. The get a little out of tune after playing for a while, I easily retune them almost every time I play. The stand is great and the mounting system is too.

Great.

Comments:

I've had these drums for a month or two, and enjoy them a lot. Others have covered the main pros and cons, and I tend to agree. But these are great drums - they sound good in a wide range of notes, tune fairly easily and hold tune well. The stock heads aren't bad, but I will say that after putting Remo Suede Emperor Crimplocks on them, they tune twice as easily and sound twice as good to my taste. The crimplocks afford an extended upper range, letting the rotos straddle a neat textural range between typical roto-tom, frame drum, and tenor drum. These, combined with RhythmTech tension tuners (the kind that click into place for each adjustment), leave you with a set of drums capable of doing over 1.5 octaves on its own while staying in great tune and being very durable. These are 5-star drums in my book if you know what you're doing - I only docked one star for the minor gripes I mentioned and the fact that these aren't as free-rotating as others I've tried. Some powdered graphite on top of the threaded rod the inner spokes rest on might help this, though. I'll add that the stand can get VERY tall, so these can easily rise over even other drums that are set at concert height - or swap bases to make a concert snare stand like I did. Overall, a great purchase!

Great Sounding Roto-Toms

Comments:

I just got this set of roto-toms for my birthday. They sound great and they integrate nicely with my five piece drum kit. The stand is good and sturdy and the clamp on the cross piece holds the toms firmly in place. The heads are so-so and are getting dents. I'll be putting a set of Evans on there after my next gig. For the price I don't believe you can beat these roto-toms. They're well made and they sound phenomenal. I highly recommend these as a very affordable way to supplement your drum kit sound.

Weiss Roto-Tom Set

Comments:

The hardware portion is solid enough. There are no assembly instructions though it's not hard to figure out, especially if you look at the photo. The main issue is the heads that come with the drums are not functional in my opinion. They're much too thin and sound poor over any range of tuning tensions that we've tried. After replacing them with some Remo heads, they sound much better.
