Great drums. Double bass is big on the smile factor. Enjoy!

Will you play the shows 4-piece or the whole double-deal?
Thanks, I thought the same thing about the paint on the hoops, it would be less authentic if it were repainted even a bit IMO.

I'll be playing it as a 4 pc, and won't bother with the rail mounts. It's a disaster trying to position both rack toms correctly with them! Just impossible, they don't have enough flexibility.

Those look great. I would have taken those heads and scrubbed them with some Barkeepers friend and a stiff brush. They will look brand new.

You didn't buy those off eBay a few weeks ago did you? I just sold my 20" and 12"!

I find a given rail mount has one combination of all the variables that will work for me. If you can get it close but tilting a bit too much to the left [player POV] you can cut a .25" or so strip of sheet brass or similar and wrap it tight around the bottom of the 'spade' - raises/tilts the tom, and seems to lessen choking.

That said, at a live show, someone could fall backwards into the tom and crack the kick shell...so yeah. Snare stand.

Hi, what size are those hoops? I might be able to help out on some inlays.

I bought them off CL about 2 months ago. I think I saw your listings though, I was just looking at sold stuff yesterday

I can make a single rail mount work no problem (though I'd want a longer spade). It's trying to get both rack toms into a position that makes sense with two opposing rails on separate kick drums that has proved impossible.
