BTW...The kit came with the SpeedKing, The SpurLok "Big Beat" hi-hat pedal, the flat base snare stand and also the flat base cymbal stand! The SpeedKing was completely "frozen" with dessicated grease. I literally took everything apart, extreme-cleaned and then re-built every piece. Every single spring, screw thread and washer was detailed!
The only problem was that one of the bass drum hoops was cracked and it needed to be re-glued and clamped...which I did. Other than that, cleaning and lubricating was all that was needed.

oh, yeah...the P-83 was bent and I had to completely dis-assemble it and put it in a vice and ever-so-carefully bend it back into shape. It works great, now...with just a slight wobble in the tension screw...but I didn't want to be torquing on it too much because the dang things to replace sell for nearly $100.00 on Ebay now!

some rust...some scratches...a few chrome flakes and a little missing paint from the SpeedKing...bass drum hoops display the all-too-typical chew marks from the pedal's clamp...but completely original and definitely a factory-issued set according to date stamps and badge numbers all in the 67.... series. I'm also positive the pedals and stands were sold together as well. The only way it would be "more" complete is if I had the second cymbal stand and a red sparkle cannister throne!

OOOoh, yeah...one other interesting note:

When I went to put them back together and tune them up, I noticed that the lug screws were bottoming out against the lug inserts of the 8 X 12 tom tom!...in other words, I couldn't screw them in any further because the collars on the lug screws would meet the lug insert before the head could achieve enough tension...and yet, those MUST have been the original lug screws that were sold with the drum because everything else was completely original (I suspect it was one of Ludwig's flubs) I couldn't figure out a solution until I compared the lug screws on my early 70's Supra...which had shorter collars. So, I replaced the original lug screws with the shorter-collared lug screws and now everything works as intended. phew!

Yes, the yard sale set...I remember....the tears are still not dry. Beautiful resto. Gorgeous pics. A set to be proud of.

Absolutely, positively, drop dead gorgeous. Very, very nice work. I can almost hear them...can't wait to hear the comparison!

Thanks, fellows! -especially brett013 (and his wife!) and also to this wonderful forum (David)!

It was a labor of love to put this kit back into proper shape, but it now lives again!

Someone asked me if that was it now -if I was done buying drum kits. I said that I was....unless another Jazzette was to come along!

Very nice set indeed. I just picked up my first jazzette this past weekend. It is an early 70's silver sparkle 18,12,14 and I got it with a 1966 jazzfest. The 70's drums have the granite paint interior and the set is in pretty decent shape. I just reheaded mine and am looking foward to playing them now. I probobly should do as you did and totally clean mine but I think I may just play them for now. I will post pics soon.
