Thanks to another member that was nice enough to post a Detroit Craigslist ad, I grabbed the drum.
The seller was very surprised to hear from New Yorker re his local ad.
The DFO brotherhood system really worked in my favor.
I usually overpay for everything, but in this case it was an excellent value.
Hard case, WFL stand, WFL drum pad, and the snare.
I really like 60's Pioneers !!!!!

Very cool snag and that duco lacquer is in amazing shape compared to so many you see.

LOL .. also from NYC and I had just placed an ad in the wanted section here for a pioneer ... dammmmmmmm .. happy you found it but now I realize that I'll have to expand my search to include other sites aside from e-bay, reverb etc .. I just lost on a purchase of a mid 60's bluse sparkle pioneer that the e-bay seller was willing to drop by $25 and I hesitated and it was sold at the asking price the next day and I've been kicking myself ever since ..

That certainly can be frustrating. I'm sure we've all experienced it.
Good luck in your search. At least I won't be competing on Pioneers for a while.

Nice! Has it been re-painted?
I don't know how to tell?
There's a1967'stamp in a perfectly painted white interior?
The badge grommet seems not messed with.
Tree red paint or lacquer is very thick and prerfe work was done as well
The hardware is pristine, the rims are flawless, the throw works
Thr snare is mint
Would a drum drum person do this much work on a lower level sdrym?

That looks like original paint (DuPont Duco industrial Lacquer) to me.

Congrats, she's a beauty !!! ;-)

I have a July 59 WFL with my birthdate scored for $60. Took a lot of work to strip the poorly done repaint and green nickel hardware, one of my faves for blues gigs. IMHO
