Default Flea market find (Zim-Gar)

So on Saturday I came across this set at a local flea market (Milton, Wv).
I almost didn't stop and look when I noticed it sitting over behind some kids toys and ride-ons but am I ever glad I did. I offered the guy $75 and he later chased me down to sell it to me for that.

-12-16-20 and 14" snare all with round ZimGar badges and die cast hoops
There's also a second 12 that I believe to be a very close matching Slingerland.
-Speed king kick and hihat stand, hihat is WFL
-14" Paiste Stanople hats
-16" zildjian A (I think)
-20" zildjian A ( I think)
-70s Ludwig bass muffler

All for $75 ��. I never find stuff like this!

You scored big, my friend! That second 12" rack tom appears to be an actual Slingerland. The tom holder is the Slingerland No. 171 from the 60's. Enjoy your kit!
