Looking forward to sharing the complete kit once I get my 16" floor tom back from being refinished. This kit will probably end of being the 'Pride of the Fleet'. Here is the 8-lug snare. All original except heads and wires.

Beautiful kits and snares guys. Really dig the duco finish on the red and black snare Dan.

Hey Steve, can you share some information on that hoop mounted tom mount? Does it have a spade for the tom? Is it a W&A mount or did Geo. Way make their own bass drum hoop mount for tom toms?

My 22" Geo. Way is completely virgin. I have the hoop mount bass drum spurs but don't have one for the 13" tom. Not that I would ever use it, but it would be nice to locate the correct piece.

What is it about the aesthetics of GW drums? They just look so "right."
