Thanks. My wife painted it. There is nothing like some Ice Age hottie pin up action. Pilots used to paint pin-up girls on planes. I go for the french cave paintings and statues for my drums. Take that Neil Peart.

The cymbals are a 60's Zildjian 20" ride as a crash, a 24" Paiste Giant Beat crash/ride, a 20" Paiste Wild Crash, a 27" Wuhan china, and a set of 15" 70's A Zildjian hats with four rivets in the bottom.

These are ,by far, my favorite vintage drums that I have owned. I wouldn't say I am a collector. Though, I do appreciate vintage drums, and have since I started playing. These are definitely a players set. They have the normal wear and scratches that come with a SS set. The rack tom was a conversion from a concert tom. That doesn't bother me in the slightest. The tom mount put an extra hole in the shell and is closer to the top than a "REAL" tom would have. They sound AMAZING, and that is all I care about. Enjoy the pictures!!!
Thread is a little old but thought I'd stop in...
Im a guitarist learning drums, picked this players set up a couple of years ago and still haven't got it all together. Now looking for period stands, love the stainless
