I love it. Didn't think any "vintage-style" items were being manufactured anymore, particularly something as lightweight as the bass mount cymbal arm looks. I gather it's pretty solid?

The drums were called Vistalite Combos. The badge is much like the Standard badge but says Combo on the badge itself. They were single headed toms. Same shells as the regular line of Vistas. Some of the later ones even came from the factory with the regular classics lugs much like Ludwig did with the Standards in the late 60's.

Very solid. I have a shimmed up disappearing spur/cymbal arm mount that goes in the double tom mount on the bass drum. The arm itself is solid metal. I do have a vintage arm like that too. Use it one another kit.

Thanks Mike. I never would have guessed the combo series had the plastic lugs. That's why I love it here I always learn something new! You sure have some nice drums.... and take excellent pictures!
