Took a while to find NOS hardware.
The sound is amazing.

Thanks Tommyp for the help.

Great looking 70's Slingy kit! Looks like one right out of the catalog! As to the sizes, I would think they are as follows:

Rack Toms: 8x12, 9x13, 10x14, 10x15

Floor tom: 14x16? I'm not aware of this size being offered in a double lug version. Have only seen this in the concert tom series. Could this be a 16x18?

Bass drums: most likely 14x22. Again, I don't recall any 16" depth bass drums during this time period. Please, chime in with more opinions here!

Regardless, it's a really great looking kit. Rock on!

Oh Man I can't even measure right.
Your right the basses are 14x22
And good eye on the floor tom. It was a concert tom. Is 14x16. I drilled it for bottom hoops. Thing sounds like a cannon.
