Here's my two submissions, both purchased from DFO members.

Big Black was Chris Jensen's resto project
Slingerland c. 1976
26, 18, 16" 14",I added the 16" tom and a 14x10 COW snare.

it's for sale if anyone is seriously interested.

Big Red was Steady Eddie's kit - now sold
I'm pretty sure that the guy who bought it parted it out.

Ludwig - c. 1979
24, 24, 13, 14, 15, 18, 6x14 snare

Fibes 26 14 18
Luds 24 13 16 18
Love those copper Slingees!!!! Was this the original arrangement of drums, or did you "build" this over

time to get them to this present quantity?? I had a chance to buy a 4-pc copper set at a local auction 2 yrs ago

for $350.00. Wished I would have got them when I had the chance. Again, congrats!!!

Here's my Rogers 9/72 Koa kit I have for sale looking all pretty.
A clip on bass drum muffler equals instant class. :icon_smile:

Well you don't see a big set of Gretsch drums that often (26, 18, 16, 14) and even rarer with the White Oyster Pearl Finish. BTW, I believe back in the seventies, Gretsch would get their bass drum shells from Rogers if they were 26" or bigger. This is set is from 1974. The 16" floor tom is from 1999.
My Old 1963 Gretsch Round badge,has a 26,13,18 w/ matching 8 lugger!!!
Recording w/ Early Mankey in Thousand Oaks(1990's),he loved it too!!!
