Sure don't see one of those sets very often, and it is the first I recall seeing in an oyster finish. Very nice set-up.

That my friend is a very beautiful drum set.

Can't say, I like the double spurs tho but overall the W&A kit is really cool looking.

The drums are 7-ply maple. The floor tom and snare sound great! The bass drum is a little thin sounding despite many different head variations. The 12" oversize shell does not accommodate heads very well. I had to break the collars on the drum heads so they would actually seat against the bearing edges! It has virtually no tuning range although it really sings when you finally get it dialed in

The double spurs are only on the tom mount side. I assume this is for stability.

Thanks for the compliments! One of my favorites!
