Wondering if anyone has a set of 60’s John Grey & Sons Broadway drums. I think they were close to Premier drum quality, maybe Olympic drums level.

I'm told the set in this 1960 picture with Paul is a John Grey set:
Looks like it, older model though, probably from 50’s. I wanted to know if anyone has a 60’s model where the lugs looks like Premier but smaller/thinner.

John Grey drums were comparable to Olympic, though it is likely that Premier was their OEM supplier. Also, like Premier, older John Grey drums are in "pre-international" sizes, so beware!

Thanks for the info. Yes, I saw a couple of ads for John Grey drums with pre-international toms.
