So, I've decided on some changes, from when I first posted this thread. There are:

- I'm not going to convert the 14x8 'pancake' tom into a snare. There are some nasty holes that need to be patched up, so I'm looking at have Ray Ayotte do the work, I've been in touch with him. He actually owned 'Drums Only' back in the day (well known Drum Shop here in Vancouver, been closed for a while though), and sold this kit to the original owner, Paul Grant, who Ray knew personally. This set is coming full circle. I'm very grateful to have such insight into the history of this kit.

- I only have one of the original bass drum hoops. So, my plan is to get a pair of maple ones, and add aged WMP inlays from Jammin Sams. I'm also going to use the same wrap to cover the 14x8 and 16x18 FT. I'll be leaving the 22x14, 13x9 and 16x15 with their natural finish.

Finally, I purchased several Lokfast stands from Blair (thanks to him, and thanks to Gunnellett for delivering them), to go with this kit, they include: hi hat stand, snare stand, and two straight cymbal stands. VERY excited to have these pieces with the the look and feel of them. Works of art, imo.

Note: I'm still looking for another matching Lokfast snare stand, and the top section for a straight Lokfast cymbal stand. PM me with any leads.

You are welcome Ryan and thanks for the Sonor stand!

I almost couldn't bring myself to delivering them. That Lokfast stuff is the coolest hardware! I hope to score some some time.
