Diamond - cool looking kit!

I have a question on the tom set up - are you able to adjust the angle of those?

Hi Dionne, thanks for the question...the toms are mounted together so cannot be adjusted individually, but as a collective they can be by moving them on the rack assembly...
These original Trixon Speedfies 0/700 are becoming very rare and sought after, and going up in price so I was very delighted to finally add one to the collection..
