…and DWs are called rata toms
…and ddrums are called decabons

All the same concept with 6” heads and varied length tubes. Some are made from fibreglass and others are aluminum.
You can also DIY if you are handy. Lots of resources online for making them.
DW is also wrong, in fact they're always wrong.
Ddrum is not a real drum company, so whatever they say doesn't matter.
They're Octobans.
Your kit is setup the only way REAL drums should be set up. (y)

I ordered these two new BEATO bags to complete my set of bags--a combo bag for my toms and a snare bag. Today is three weeks from the order date and I hadn't received them yet so I emailed Fred today to inquire about their progress. He emailed back within ten minutes (as he has every time!) and said he sent them out already and the UPS tracking number he included said they were delivered to my house over a week ago! I thought, "Oh no! Porch pirates!" but no, I found the box in my dining room. One of my kids must have brought it in and forgotten to tell me. I am excited to pack my kit for my gig this weekend! They are a little wrinkled because, according to the included note, they had to pack them tight in the box to avoid more shipping costs.

A ribbon crasher!!!

So much fun and so useful in my country band (hand clapping and similar sounds).

I use those mounted on my marching bass drums for a cool effect instead of just rim click

250 bucks including cymbals and stands. Was supposed to become a beater kit for my studio/rehearsal room complex, but now we have other crazy plans for it, please be patient ^^

holy high school memories Batman!! All of my friends - and many of the backlines - had those back in the late 80's/early 90's.

We don't even get any hints? Projects fascinate me. (y)

I've got a 13x9 in the same finish from the same era. Looks to be in as good of shape, too.
Pretty sure mine is pre-Export, though.

As promised here is the pic once it would arrive. Shiny!
Sadly band practice is cancelled Friday and can't try them out in a live situation, but when I'm done with work I will whip out a hi-hat stand and annoy the neighbors (don't have a kit set up at home).
Just a few taps and you can hear the sound it will produce. And did I mention it is shiny?
There are a few blemishes on the top cymbal near the hole which I assume is some ink residue and a small scratch mark which will disappear after a good rub (that's what she said). Could be a returned model or a bit of wear and tear in the shipping process, but otherwise pristine looking! Now the wait begins for the Dry Heavy Ride to be in stock hehe.

I spent a few weeks working in New Hampshire and afterwards went to Drum Center Portsmouth (where this photo was taken). I went with the intention of browsing, maybe buying a drumhead just to support the shop. 🤷‍♂️

I tried out about 15 ride cymbals and fell in love with how the sticks sound on this model. No matter how hard I play it, it doesn't wash out. The 16" crash has been on my wish list; I've wanted a crash with a faster decay for a long time.

The die cast hoop is going on my Starphonics for trial runs.

What kind of ride is it?

Last week I got out my set of those from back in the late 90s or early 2ks. The SOUND EDGE is stamped differently. Mine are still brilliant since they haven't been played at marinas. I like them for everything except Sweet Emotions.
I've got an 18" Paiste Fast Crash too.
