I haven't been around much lately and I missed this thread. Looks like I'll be the only response....

Click on the link at the bottom of my post to see photos of my W&A kit. I recently heard back from Jeremy, the current owner of W&A that Big Blue will be featured in his upcoming history of W&A drums. I'm proud and honored to be included in his book and through Big Blue, to become a part of W&A history. VDF history too! To date, the thread has been read, 30,700 times! Whooda thunk it?

John

Have only had one and it was a floor tom. But what a floor tom it was! 16x14 with Gretsch Rocket lugs, flange hoops with clips, Wfl legs and hardware, black interior, original calf heads.

W&A drums sound awesome. Full bodied, warm sound that projects. They were made differently from any other drums I've ever seen. Re-rings and bearing edges being among the most noticeable ones. Extra rings on some drums and custom edges on everything that left the factory. Quality with a capital Q.

It's Purdie Shuffffllleee! This forum is unquestionably my favorite..you can come back years later and see the same dudes showing off "new" amazing drum sets.

Anyways that is a very nice kit. I am a sucker for blue and that real classic look so you win Yours is the best kit on that site White pearl is 2nd.

I've added one to my stuff since I've last visited the post. It is a part of a mixed kit that I bought earlier in the year (with some great history). The bass drum is a W&A. It's a 14x22 8 lug Gretsch shell,3ply no re-rings circa '50ish. Has Slingerland lugs. The badge was removed at some point but the outline can be seen. A rail and a Gretsch cymbal mount were added. It's missing the original Slingerland style cymbal mount which I am trying to find. Found some period Gretsch Broadkaster calfskin heads for it. The tom is a 48-52 WFL and a Transition badge Super snare drum. The floor tom is one of mine as a fill in until I find a proper 16.
