More pictures of the kit!

My HSS has been sitting for a few years with no wrap. The biggest issue was that the shells are not undersized and the “average” wrap was too thick, causing heads not to fit. I was pretty much resigned to using a Satin Flame and then discovered that these Bum Wrap coverings might be thin enough to work. At 21 mil, the wrap was the thickest that allowed heads to fit! So, I figured why not do something special. The “George” flag wrap really looks nice and I’m happy with the quality, too!

The bass drum head was obtained from Vintagelogos.com. Really nice!

All the original HSS hardware is in great condition and everything was polished…even those funky “Mickey Mouse Ear” wingnuts! Rather than use the original Sticksaver hoops, I had a nice set of Pearl FAT TONE hoops for the toms and snare drum. They look great on the drums!
I’ll be playing the kit for a 4th of July celebration at my girlfriend’s mom’s house in Pasadena. Will be fun!

Nice job Mark! I always appreciate your attention to detail, and in this case, across the entire spectrum... which includes the grass! Me being of the Polish persuasion, well... I gots to have nice grass!, and certainly feel a bond with others that do too! <smile> The drums came out mahvelous Mark! Typical SUPER job!

Great work on that kit... Looks Amazing...nice detail.. Bet that front head looks good when it's flapping (even John Adams would be proud of you).

So is the Snare metal shell or Ply ?, sure looks nice..

And to all of you Yankee Doodle's.. wishing you all a nice celebration..

Cheers
John
