Dope kitYup. That's a Slingerland 12x26 shell, probably from the 40's or earlier. It was originally single tension, but I put Ludwig classic casings on it.
The floor tom is a '67 Ludwig 3-ply 12x15 marching tenor drum that i put legs on. Later, I found a pair of 15" wood hoops. I'm pretty sure it started life with conventional triple-flange hoops.
The snare is a 6.5 Supra that most of the chrome had come off of, so I did a whimsical spray paint job. I usually use a 7x14 WFL zephyr lug snare from the 30's with single-flange hoops. It sounds like crap all by itself, but works really well with the Zydeco band for some reason. Here's a better picture.

Edit: Whoops.That's an earlier picture with a different BD. It's a '57 WFL 10x26.
