Truly a wonderful kit here. The 8×12 and 14×18 were originally custom ordered as a set in the 70′s without a floor tom (though there was a 9×13 with the kit as well – hence the double tom mount). The 14×14 floor tom sports the Black and Brass badge from the 60′s. Serial numbers are as follows: 12″- 51056. 18″ – 54179. 14″ – 156142
All 3-ply shells with maple interiors. The one cosmetic issue is some cracking of the floor tom wrap around one of the leg brackets. This, of course, is very common with agate/onyx finishes. It’s not terrible though and because of the nature of the finish is not easy to see unless you are checking it out closely.
Sound-wise these drums absolutely sing! Hard to overstate that as they really play and sound great. Not much else to add beyond that!
