Very cool kit and great save! I like the combination of the deep 12" snare with the drum sizes of a Club Date kit, it's a good match-up. And yes, the last time I worked with a band was three years ago, but I had stripped down my gigging set-up to a Club Date kit with a 12"x15" floor tom. Once I mic'ed it up, it held it's own in a Blues Band with horns, keyboards, etc. Quick and easy load-in, load-out and it played great. Club Dates are just a smart choice for any bar/club/hotel type gigs.

back...

They look great.
Were they a duco finish originally?

Thanks! The bass and 12" tom were originally a solid red lacquer. No duco. The floor tom was a blue sparkle that had some serious fade by the time I got it, so I didn't feel too badly about rewrapping them.

Hee! Funny thing about that photo: I was grinning ear to ear throughout the whole gig, and then they snapped this one pic...

Nice kit, I'm sure it sounds great!
Faust Music was a Milwaukee eccentricity, I stumbled on it while lost trying to find my way to the highway! Mr. Faust was known to be a crummudgeon and you had to make an appointment to get in, I had heard of the place and knocked on the door, I think he only let me in because of being sweet on my wife!! He had some really great gear in there and I grew to really dig this guy. He sadly passed last year. If you google it there are some great stories about that place!
