Sorry for not posting in the "ebay heads up for vintage drums" sticky, but I felt these were nice enough to warrant their own thread.

I can't tell if they're the early, thin shell, killer sounding, reinforcement-ringed Superstars, but the finish and condition of this kit is beyond gorgeous, to me. Early shells or not, the kit probably sounds damn good, too. I have a 1983 set of Supes that sound great. If they're the aformentioned shells, I'm going to try and score this kit.

Pics, for a lifetime of enjoyment after the listing is gone.

the bass drum spurs and floor tom feet probably make them a late 70s kit

I bought that kit in May of 2012 in the UK, and recently sold it to the Ebay seller

It's a 6ply 9mm kit from late '79/early 1980

The '83 cherry wine Supes I've got are marred by previous owner gigging and lack of care in general. I'd love to replace them with a clean kit, but for what I paid for mine, it 's unlikely to happen without an attic clearance and someone not knowing their value.

Are you sure the shells are 9mm? I know the above kit isn't the thin shell version, but the later 6 ply don't look that thick.
