But I'm a drummer that plays Stringed Instruments so drums are my main Instrument.
It's one of my hobbies along with playing music is to buy/play/sell vintage tube amps. ie; Marshall 1959, 1987, 2203's, 2204's, Majors. Sunn Sorados, 190B's, Scetpre, Model T's, Enforcer's. Laney pre Supergroups, Supergroups, Kilpps, VA100, Music City. Oh and playaround with some Mesa Rectifiers and a Heartbreaker that I like alot. My little combo is a SoniCord Toad with a 15" in which is an interesting amp... to name a few.
I bet Valco is a sweet sounding little amp!

Wow, What a nice set you got..Now onto your question on the toms.A few things to look at are the holes on the mounts are they round and the "L" arm fits tight into them? OR are the holes look out of round? If they are out of round and the "L" has some play to them then you will need to replace the mounts.You can also check the round inserts inside each mount same goes for them..Another thing to look for is were the nut is on the outside of the mount is their one washer or two? If only one washer add another washer this would tightn up the insert and the "L" arm better..Mikey

Mark that throne is all about sexy..... very nice drums

P.S. sitting in front of four of those marshalls is the reason i can hardlt hear and have tennitis but it was awesome getting there.... love those amps along with sunn, and vox,

I was shopping for my first set of drums when the Stainless Quadras came out. I wanted those sooooo bad but, I couldnt find any where near enough yards to mow to afford 'em!

Does anyone have an original price sheet on what they sold for in the day?

Do you know which models were the second and third in the price line and how did they compare (price)?
