Here is my favorite out of all my US made Kent sets in my collection . My champagne sparkle set with the harder to find 8 lug snare . Sizes are 14x20 BD , 8x12 tom , 14x14 FT, 5x14 snare . It has very nice original bearing edges , original wrap , and badges This set sounds amazing and is great fun to play .

Here are some other of my US made Kent sets .

1968 Diamond Lug set in champagne sparkle . These were made on year only and are hard to come by in general but a complete set is VERY hard to come by . 14x20 BD ,8x12 tom , 16X16 FT and matching 8 lug 5x14 snare .. This is the day I got em and had not even cleaned them yet . They have now have been cleaned and the rubber feet on the spurs and FT legs replaced . They are mint !

My 1966 red sparkle set the day it showed up .14x22 BD with 6 lugs , 9x13 tom , 14x14 FT ,16x16 FT . 5x14 6 lug snare ...http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...psuigvdgui.jpg

1950s white badge BDP set . 14x22 BD with 8 lugs per side ,8x12 tom ,16x16 , 5x14 8 lug snare ...I really prefer small bass drums but this is a really nice sounding 22 .

Blue sparkle 60s blue badge 14x20 6 lug BD, 8x12 tom ,15x15 FT , 5x14 8 lug snare ... http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...psrfjwwqeh.jpg

1966 Blue badge set that the BD and 12" tom were champagne sparkle but were faded and gingered so bad that they are a light yellow ish gold . The FT was silver sparkle that gingered to a gold ish color and matches pretty close . Now I just need to find a 8 lug snare that matches ... 14x20 BD with 8 lugs per side , 8x12 tom ,14x14 FT ...Pretty bruised up and old but then again so is the owner ...http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...psjg66unu9.jpg

I also have a pretty decent size US made Kent snare collection including both the nicer 8 lug and the cheaper 6 lug models .

Here is my 68' "Coffin Lug" Kents. They were featured in the July issue of Modern Drummer as the "Kit of the Month"

Hey man, doing good, how about yourself. Got some beautiful kits there! How many other coffin lugs kits you suppose are out there, I'll bet not too many. Did you see this ad/catalog Mark Cooper added to his site? Pretty cool!

I am doing great . Sadly I have been so busy I have not had a lot of time on the drum throne as I have been going back and forth to AZ helping my parents because they are at the age they need my help more and more but that is OK with me .

Yeah probably not many complete sets with those lugs around at all . I would love to find a 14x14 in champagne sparkle for my set but that may take a while ...

Yeah I saw that catalog . A member on my Kent Facebook page posted some catalogs and that was one . GREAT stuff !
