I happened to run across this kit with the Rocket badge. Nice wrap, too!

Oh Heck yes Jeff
that floor tom is with it's new family
they are displayed together on the very top shelf
almost out of frame to the right in the pic here

I am short a few rods and other minor things on that kit

Jay here are those Norma drums in that same wrap
The nice blue on mine is faded to a greenish grey
everywhere save for the hoops and under the lugs
in fact the color is faded so much
that the wood grain can been seen underneath the wrap

That';s right, you have the same wrap different badge. OldSchool, where did you happen across the full kit? Same finish as my snare, one of the more unique ones ( I'm not even sure what the name for it is ) Does anyone here?

So it has no rerings? I'd probably be working on that...There are companies making rerings,solid and ply for reasonable money.

Tom, I have been toying with the idea of installing rings and re-doing the edges in a 30 degree round over. The drum sounds pretty good but I think that would improve it. With it being a 8 lugger and such solid hardware it might be worth it.

I did some searching, not finding reinforcement rings for sale, just as a service. If I do find them I wonder what size to get?
