It's the kind of thing most of us dream of finding.

Thoughts: Gorgeous wrap that's gonna clean up real nice. Hope the reso side bearing edges are not too messed up from the days of concert tomism.
Question: What sizes are the mounted tom toms?

Starship_Krupa,....thanks,....yeah the wrap and lugs are looking pretty good,...the rims, hoops and claws are in bad shape though,....the tom bottom edges have a couple rough spots, looks like they were slapping on a bass drum lug when played but not so bad that a new edge won't clean them up,...savable for sure,....both toms are 9x13,...my first thought was it was a Hollywood until I saw the rail mount,...I'll post some more pics once I dig into them,....thanks everybody for the warm welcome!!

I would now replace those Pearl floor tom legs with some original legs, or at the very least, the Gibraltar repro legs.. Great job on the restoration..They look like the came out of the factory ! Enjoy them..
