Hey there,
there's a pickup only offering in Ohio/Michigan. Looks like a mongrel kit but it has the bathroom fixture bass tensioners. Take a look, maybe you vintage gurus might see something. Old Slinger 3 piece shell kit maybe? I know one tom is Pearl xport and pearl hardware on the bass. Old hardware too.

Hey, I thought you were our friend. Looks like a 60's or 70's import set. Not Slingerland, just a copy. Re: the cracked camber cymbals, etc... Now they're sexy!!! The set is worth the price of the gray Export tom; maybe $50-$75 max. The rest just needs to be recycled or burned with the ashes being sprinkled up and down along Interstate I-75. Have a good one!

^Saw that, and not too far away from me (2 hours?). Looks like a resto project I don't have time for though.

And what's this? An unchromed 6 1/2 Supra, a ten lug Acro if you will?
Judging from the bidding it's the real deal
