Hey there,
there's a pickup only offering in Ohio/Michigan. Looks like a mongrel kit but it has the bathroom fixture bass tensioners. Take a look, maybe you vintage gurus might see something. Old Slinger 3 piece shell kit maybe? I know one tom is Pearl xport and pearl hardware on the bass. Old hardware too.

Any of you drum sharpies have an opinion of what the primer painted kit is for this listing?

My guess is these are old 60's Asian drums (except for that strap lug tom) in bad cosmetic condition. Stencil clones of Slingy drums. The sweet Gretsch hi-hat stand is very cool but not worth my time or gas to drive north to Tiffin, OH.

Not ebay, but if anyone is in Tampa Bay, it sounds like this Rogers kit is 24/13/16/18 with cymbals and stands for $350!

Gosh, I think this is one cool set of drums:

1944 Radio King 3-Piece: http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item231051592e

A little worn, not minty, and maybe not bargain-basement... but if I had $3550 hanging around to goof off with, I know what I would spend it on. :-D

Not strictly vintage but a great drum at a good price. I predict these will be more sought after in the future...
Premier Genista snare $250

BIG Rogers kit in Cincinatti should go cheap
