Awesome drum set. I've got a '51 BDP kit. These drums are the best!

Beautiful drums! How about some snare pictures please? Would love to see it. Classic in WMP too. Your right these drums sound SO good. I play mine every day and just love them. Enjoy.

Very nice. I've got something very similar (wmp, nickel streamline lugs and clipped tom hoops) in 26/13/16 and I agree with you, the tone is amazing. Such a fun kit to play.

Really nice! Gotta ask, how do end up with a date from these drums? Been trying to get an age on mine.....

Crash - I have the identical set of drums to yours sitting in my basement as a project kit. I'd be interested to know when these were made as well. My kit is composed of the same drums, same color, same badges as yours. Identical in every detail. Hope you get a response...
