Default Had a lead on some vintage gear....
https://imgur.com/a/iTNJOAz
I’d say we had a pretty good day! Drove out of state the day I got home from a business trip to meet a gentleman who is beginning to sell his collection. Incredibly unique guy, ultra eclectic, doesn’t own a computer or a cell phone so it was a challenge....I had no idea what I was getting myself into but I could’ve talked to that gentleman for hours! So cool to see how boundaries whether it’s age, background, or social status mean nothing when you’re talking it up with a new drum buddy! I got the opportunity of purchasing some of this gentleman’s collection letting him know I’d get these drums to great homes! Awesome experience! All of the drums are up for sale if you’re interested let me know! I’d love for a forum member to end up with them!
I’ve had trouble uploading photos the last several attempts. Consistently saying it’s misisng a security token and that I need to contact a admin...

Yes sir! Good eye Bob! I actually drove out there to checkout that kit. Bass and rack tom are both 70’s drums and I believe the floor was a round badge originally. Other than the rewrap drums are very clean and interiors are factory. All silver and the floor has a sticker inside.Wrap was professionally redone and looks excellent. All hardware looks to be original and I got a killer deal on them so I couldn’t pass them up! Once I saw the snares I had to go to the atm!😂

Resize the photos usually works for me when I get that message.
Have to be smaller in size.
