Default Morris Kit

Here's one for you MIJ fans out there.
My first drum kit was a Morris that I bought from a second hand musical instruments store. 25 years later I see this one for sale and had to have it.
My intentions were to fix it up and put new heads on it, but I've put it on the back burner for now.
You don't see too many of these. Here's some photos.
Sizes are 20", 12", 14",

Nice!

Interesting tom holder mechanism. The "thumb" on the clip mount looks bigger/wider than on standard MIJ stuff. What are the sizes? Is that an 18" bass drum?

Ok, thanks. Did you just edit that post or did I just completely miss that?


Cool kit. Maybe it's just the way they are set up, but the bass drum sure looks like an 18" in those photos. Maybe the large "Morris" logo makes the bass drum seem smaller than it actually is.

It sure does look like an 18". If it were an 18 it would be going nowhere. How cool would that be?! It's definitely a 20"
