yours?
too bad about the fade.
It looks like the snare has the W/A unique throw off. I love it.

If that's a good price I'm feeling really good about the W/A kit I have.

Yes, mine. I do nt know where the price lands but I know what I have into finding and buying all the right hardware for it. It is too bad about the faded wrap but it’s in otherwise great condition and all set up the kit presents nicely and sounds killer.

This is the same kit we talked about last September for sale in Richmond VA. This gent bought them and is now trying to resell. Had a long conversation, and I have more pics. Two extra holes on the bass where the rail has been moved.

that looks a little more than 14X14 ; is it?
Those drums never have edges; do they? remember reading that step was skipped; on purpose)cost)
Or am I thinking of US Kent..

Yes, at least 16 deep, those wood hoops suggest even deeper? Here are some more shots that I rec'd. Note the holes. So basic but so elegant. Re edges, you may be thinking of Kent, as their shells are so thin I imagine it's hard to even put a profile on.

Seems most W and A sets had floor toms that were 14" x 16" deep.
That marching drum type set seems off.
Doesn't seem like something that would have been done in the '60s.

I agree, first thing I thought when I saw it, but I'm no expertt. I have a '67 W & A kit and my brother played a '66 W & A kit back then and they both looked more like that 70's W & A kit I posted here for sale.

Also, may I note the asking price is $1400 with no hi-hat stand, cymbal stand, snare stand, kick pedal (a
W & A at that), cymbals and one less rack tom and I am asking $1999 (open to offers) with all period and brand correct hardware down to every hex headed t-rod, bass drum claw and die cast rim. I think that snare alone is well over $400 all by itself and to have it matched to it's siblings has to mean even a little more. Pricing vintage drums is such a moving target. I'm not denigrating that other W & A kit, I'd love to hear it.
