Here's the Gold '74 Slingerlands I got recently. I also have a 14" rack tom that's not pictured. I'm taking them out Saturday on their first gig.

Yes, 24/13/18. I also have a 14" rack tom that was not pictured. My four year old grandson likes this set. I have video of him banging away on them.

Right. The bass drum is a cannon. I'm anxious to hear how it sounds tomorrow night on the gig.

Really nice kit!! Have you tried using the 14RT instead of the 13RT yet?

Cheers

Yes, and I think it will take some getting used to. I've played 12" and 13" rack toms all my life, so a 14" is a bit large. The room I'm playing Saturday night is infamous for management busting balls about volume, so I'm playing it safe and using the 13."

Can you post a photo of your peacock pearl set, please? I'd love to see it.
