I’ve been restoring some shells I got and just got them rewrapped and some edge damage repaired and recut (they weren’t playable)

Im looking for a 16” floor tom. Something that needs recovered so it will match. I don’t mind if it’s missing hardware, but ideally it have at least half the lugs (I have 8 spares) and the floor tom brackets.

I added some pictures to show what I started with...3 shells that had the original covering removed, painted black inside, recovered in faux wood vinyl, and used as concert toms.

Cool. I've been looking for an LA concert tom to go with my LA single sided bass drum and floor tom.

Are the toms you are working with actual concert toms? I couldn't tell from the pictures.

Thanks,
Wes

Hey Wes they weren’t actually concert toms. When the other owner recovered them, he used them as concert toms but they were drilled for bottom lugs. The wrap just covered the holes. He of course lost all the other lugs and hoops but I was able to track some down. The floor tom in the original pictures from when I got them was a MIJ tom.

I found a Tuxedo 14x14 in white marine pearl randomly while visiting my parents that’s a pretty close match but I’d much prefer a 16” floor tom because of the sizes of the other drums.

A 16x16 WMP just got listed on Reverb.
