Very cool. Curious about mounting options. Is that the old blues drummer?

Thanks for the kind words. The set was sold on feebay a few years back. Sold through a local music store where Mark was retired. He didn't want to be contacted. To the left of the HH stand I see bongos. The set has wear and I never detailed it to keep original mojo. 20/12/13/16/18 all had the original heads played a...lot. The snare that came with was a Sling COB model that I gave to a local Slingerland collector friend. He helped me pull in the fruitwood 4 digit 6.5 snare that stays with the set now. Mark is shown on the front cover of the album playing a set of Slingy Capri pearl and on the back recording with this set. I have his A Zild too. All drums and cymbals have his intitials scratched into them. I kept the rusty hardware and mallets that came with his set too. I did find it odd that a large set in these sizes were ordered around 1964/5. I don't usually see that either. I appreciate all the comments on this one. It was nice to wake up to that. Here's some more eye candy on Mark. Back cover reads he was staff drummer for Universal Records. Anyone know of this cat? and my mind....did he keep or loose Rogers sparkling red bongos!?! I hope he kept em. Fine taste in instruments and cymbals. Peace, Gary

Hey, cool provenance. However, and I'm ashamed to say this, but I started belly-laughing at the middle pic. It's like, he was playing and then someone called his name out loud. Anyway, great background on your awesome kit!
