I've replaced the floor tom leg mounts with the new repro Gretsch mounts so I don't have any problems with stripping out the threads of my vintage mounts. They work great and actually have same hole spacing. In the future I will do the same with any of my vintage sets that I use out on the road.

Besides that, the set is holding up just fine. This is the second time I've had this one out. The first run was 6 weeks and this one is a short 3 week run.

Its funny how many people have never heard of Camco. They all think round lugs= DW set!

Oh, and the snare is a Ludwig 1970's 6.5" Black Beauty.

SC... does your L.A. Camco kit have any serial numbers written in the shells?
