Need to consider cost to get them in shape unless it's a labor of love. The basics look pretty good to me.

Some of it is gone but it looks like a lot of the parts would clean up. Are those wood shells with chrome wrap? Could be a great project, just the kind I like. (Labor of love as mentioned above)

We call that "patina" and it commands a premium...

First, I would try to see how well the orig. chrome wrap cleans up. But

if it still looks bad, consider a re-wrap. (Gold Glitter) just a suggestion.

Snare shell looks MIJ. Don't know about those lugs on it though.

I live 200 miles from this lot of premier drums plus a snare thats not even worth bothering with. I have a steel over wood kit and reckon the steel wrap has had its day. All the drums stripped back would probably come out great unless warped. Still great for spares for the distance to get them would need to buy for about 50 max. A great project for someone on doorstep. The guy wont post and its a cash job. If anyone needs to chat to the guy selling it go to ebay its on there. As i say prob a spares kit.

Barnacles need love too.

Just get your tetanus shot prior to cuddling!
