ok, I'll bite ...

'67 Luxus and '64 Telstar ... the Telstar kit is identical to the first "real" set of drums that I ever played. I found them in bad shape, but they cleaned up nicely.

Love that tapered BD. What are the head sizes? Looks like a 20" batter and 18" front?

The Telstar kit was a 4-pc. The dimensions for the '64 version were:

Kick - 16x16x20
Floor - 14x16x16
Rack - 13x8x14
Snare- 13x5.5x14

The toms look like they were cut from the same "tube" (the geometric shape is called a frustum) ... bass and snare were separate.

This kit is a Speedfire bass drum with Telstar conical toms for max Trixon weirdness.
