Just purchased a Zickos kit on Craigslist. 18x22 kick, 18x18 floor tom, 12x14 rack tom and it also came with a late 60's Rogers (Yamaha) R-360, 5.5x14, COS snare. The kit is in great shape for the most part. However, the previous owner, who bought it in 1976, did not use resonant heads on the toms. He did however have the hoops attached. The hoops on the floor tom were heavily rusted, especially the resonant hoop. Cleaned it off the best I could with Metal Rescue bath (which is awesome stuff by the way) and then Turtle Wax chrome polish and rust remover to keep it from rusting further. I know this is only a temporary fix because "rust never sleeps", to quote Neil Young. I am going to use resonant heads for the toms. I would like to replace the floor tom hoops (with notches) and I also need a hinge and mini claw for the floor tom since one was missing when I bought it. If anyone has a connection for Zickos parts, or has a retro-fit suggestion that has worked for them, please let me know.

Zickos were one of the most popular brands in the 70s from what Ive heard. Thats what dennis wilson was playing in the mid/late 70s/ they were the king of all acrylic drums right?

Zickos,though the original acrylic drums,were definately not the "king" of acrylic drums.That crown goes to Ludwig Vistalites,for sure.

Didn't know Dennis Wilson played them. 3 DOG NIGHT's 'LIVE' album shows Floyd Sneed sitting behind a kit of Zickos as well.

Yeah check out any live footage or photos of dennis from the mid 70s when he started drumming again after his hand healed to the end of the 70s, *****in huge zickos with gold plated hardware and two very large cymbals at both sides, whether one was a crash and the other a ride or were they both crash/rides I cant fig out.
