Time to let a really good one go. I've had these drums for ~5 years now and they come with some DFO provenance. They were formerly owned by mikesdrums and before that belonged in DanRH's illustrious stable. I'll hazard a guess both will speak highly of this kit.
Mid-90's 7 piece Fibes Austin-era drum set with Jasper shells in Black Onyx lacquer finish. Sizes are 8x10 TT, 9x12 TT, 14x14 FT, 16x16 FT, 16x22 BD, 6.5x14 SD and very rare 3x13 Fibale.
Heads are in good shape with the 12" being the most used of the lot. Coated Emperors on top with Clear Ambassadors on bottom. Snare has a Remo CS batter and Fibale an Attack 1-ply thin head. Super Kick II on batter with Aquarian single ply on reso for the kick drum.
Includes Gauger RIMS aluminum mounts with Yamaha brackets for the 10" and 12" toms, a Yamaha double holder, two Yamaha CL945B ball clamps, stand mount for the Fibale and six Pearl iso-feet floor tom legs. The snare drum has Puresound snares made for the Fibes SFT strainer.
Note: Bass drum pillow, high-hat and snare stand not included.
All toms and both kick drums have a few small nicks and light scratches from use. Bass drum hoops are in good shape without only light claw marks that can be covered by the claws. The worst blemish is on the 12" tom, which has a fair amount of rash on one panel between the lugs. This, I believe, was caused by a previous owner (definitely not Mike or Dan) using Yamaha tom arms that were too long. See pic below for detail. It's easy to cover with the RIMS mount.
These are some of the best built and finest sounding drums I've ever owned. They tune up beautifully and will hold their own against anything manufactured today. Please PM me if you have any questions or would like to discuss in more detail.
Drums are located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. At this time, I’d prefer local pick up. Willing to drive a few hours in any direction to meet a DFO drum brother for a hand-off.
