What a fine setup!
Makes me think of early bop sessions in smoky hidden clubs...

What a fantastic "repurposing" of a Ludwig Triumphal and Champion parade drum. I have four Champions. They have an beautiful warm, fat tone with either calfskin or Fiberskyn heads.

And good for you for not drilling FT leg mounts. Where did you come up with those great bolt-on FT legs? I want a set!

Thanks for sharing your creation.

Mike

Love the setup. What sizes are the bass and floor tom? Beautiful cymbals as well.

Very nice. I’d really like to find a 16 X 12 triumphal to go with my snare and bass drum.

I long time looking for a 18" tenor drum double tension from that era,
I realized that they are really very rare, hiper rare, those 16" are more easily to find!
