I concur on the 171 tom mount but it would not be expected on what the seller is claiming to be a '69 kit. Should be a Set-O-Matic.

Those beautiful denim drums. Looks great under stage lights. Also very rugged.

Damn, I forgot purple sparkle! If you ever decide to part with that purple set Mark, you know who to call first. They're awesome. But, you can keep those Slingerland stands. I have bad memories of those snare, hi-hat and cymbal stands wearing out and collapsing on gigs. Wing nuts on the bottom was just a bad idea. As was a leather strap on the bass drum pedal. That crapped out on a gig too.

As far as the Aztec finishes, we'll have to agree to disagree. LOL.

Yes, it's a rare finish, but I'm just don't think it's $3000 rare! Am I wrong?

-Mark
I've been watching that set on Ebay. I think the seller is nuts. $3000? No.

Wonderful pics and info, thanks.

The white tiger kit on Goodwill is at $701, from searching around the net regarding value that seems low.

What would be a fair price?

We'll find out in several days. Note that condition appears a bit rough. Looks like significant yellowing of wrap and plenty of missing parts. All of that will affect price. Still neat early 70's drums.
