    Here's the catch - with 20" BD + 12" Tom. Floor tom doesn't matter (14" would be sublime, 16" is fine).

    Wrap/finish - Anything but blue slate/blue onyx.

    The 12" tom is the issue - all the ones I've seen lately are part of a 22/12/13/16 set up. Need the smaller bass drum.

    Player's condition is totally fine as long as edges are OK

    Thanks.

    Most Drops came as 13 16 20

    The 13 can be tuned higher and cover the range of the 12 no problem

    It is not the size of the drum you want but rather the tuning

    Yeah, the 13"s are pretty versatile. It was more for a gigging kit and getting the drums as small as possible. I've got a lead on a Teardrop bop set, so we'll see how it goes.

    Bops are rare no matter the finish. That would be a fine kit. 2 just listed last week. One still up over on the museum for 5k

    A buddy has a 20-12-16 late 60's early 70's 6 ply teardrop kit for $800. I think it is the blue onyx.

    Let me know if you want his contact info and I'll get it for you.
