XP8 Info Please..


I have a XP8 kit that is confusing me a bit. I started to disassemble the set the other day and found that all the badges, no matter how the kit is set up are facing to the back. There are ( 5 ) toms and a floor tom. the seams on the wrap is facing the front as are the mounts. Is this normal for the XP8's to come the factory like this ? thanks for any input .

Thanks Jack. I don't understand tho why they would do that. looks like it was built for a left hander. most of my kits have a least one badge facing front. but at least now I know. Thanks a bunch.

The earlier Big R (pre-XP8) were criticized for having that quite unattractive badge facing front. For the XP8's, they shifted the badge to be directly opposite of the tom arms, which essentially hid them from view.
