Nice! I love that finish.

I recently purchased a 63/64 John Grey Broadway kit. 22/14/12/16. The floor tom isn't original, it matches well though. However, I am on the look out for a matching one...so if anyone has any leads, please PM me Another note, you'll see in the pictures a triple flange hoop on the rack tom batter side, I have the original hoop...the previous owner had put that on, just haven't swapped it out yet. I will when a get some new pre-international heads.

I'm very impressed with the build quality. I love the die cast hoops and tension rods, very classy looking imo. I lucked out, my kit is in amazing shape, well taken care of...and for super cheap, seller was desperate to sell.

I look forward to seeing more JG drums!

Cheers.

The only John Grey drummy thing I have is a bass drum pedal. Love to have a kit though, but god knows where I'd put it. Too many drums, not enough space (sound familiar?). Both of those finishes are beautiful!

Okay, here are some pics. The strap is not original - it also seems a little too short.
