James, would love to see your vistalite kit, listen, parden me my eyes might be going bad, but it appears from the pic that set is a black/silver badge, or is it gold? anyway, did you purchase your snare at the same time? The wrap is a shade off, I have the same issues, I aquired some pieces at various times, and although they are same era, the MWP can vary some amoung the set, I think it gives it character anyway.

Hey Gary - The Slingerlands are the black/gold badges. The bass drum is from Chicago '59-61; mounted tom is a '64 (no badge), floor tom is a '67 from Niles with "chocolate milk" interior. You're right about that snare too - its a shade more yellow than the rest of the kit. It also has a black gold Chicago badge (without the fancy S loop) and has nickel hardware, unlike the rest of the drums which have chrome. There is a nice pic of my snare in the snare gallery section too if you're interested in a closer look. I believe the snare is a '57. All of the drums were purchased separately over the last year, except for the bass drum which I had sitting in a closet at my parents home for the last 15 yrs. Oh - Ill pm you tomorrow and send you pic of the vistalite kit. Thanks for looking!
