Roto Toms from Steve Weiss Music

Comments:

This will be my second review of this purchase. The previous review was how fast the shipping and delivery was. Really quick, like a whole week sooner. Now that I've had a chance to use them, I can say besides they arrived undamaged. They are every thing I expected. Very little assembly and durable...Great sounding as well even with the original heads. I have put different heads out of personal preference to match my kit but the pens that were shipped sounded just fine. 5 stars and thank you to S.W.M. Greg

Good option!

Comments:

The short version: I'm glad I bought them! If you seek reasonably-priced alternatives to the big 'R' company's offerings, look no further than Steve Weiss rototoms. I bought the 12" and 14". Sound: Great! They sound like rototoms should--one clear note with little/no overtones, and moderate sustain. I would challenge anyone to tell the sonic difference in a blind test between these and the big R rotos. Drum construction: Solid construction of rims upper and lower. Counter hoops *might* be a lighter gauge than the other company's, but this is no problem. Drums are easy to tune up--just make sure to start with even tension on the rods all around before turning the center tension. Carriage bolts appear to be adequate, but I might replace later with SS. That's probably me being picky. Heads: The stock single-ply clear heads can only be described as adequate, but that's not a big deal. Weiss is trying to keep costs low, which we appreciate. As soon as these are worn out I'm going with Pinstripes or Emperors or G2s, etc. Stand: I'm biased, because I've never liked the track mounting option for rototoms, regardless of brand. Who mounts their drums in a straight line?? In any case, the included stand will hold both drums securely. It couldn't be described as heavy-duty, and the black "handles" used to secure the rods to the stand are cast aluminum, rather than the steel used by the other company. Still, the stand works, and I hit fairly hard. I recommend experimenting with mounting options. After all, the carriage bolts are standard 3/8-16 threads. You can go to the HW store and dream up some more useful alternatives. The Tama MC5 clamp fits the bolt fine, so you could remove the black tension handles, attach one half of an MC5 to the 3/8" bolt and the other half to a 9-10mm tom mounting rod. This is just one option. I wonder if Weiss would consider getting a 3/8-16" L-rod made, with a resin 1.5" ball to fit nearly any tom stand? That would solve the whole mounting issue. Good drums. Buy with confidence.
