OptikDrums said:The kit is a 1961 downbeat anniversary sparkle. The 1936 silver anniversary snare was not a part of the sale, however the brass supra was.
Long story short, the seller dropped the drums off at a 3rd party packing company. I received half of the drums (missing the floor tom) with no explanation or communication. Finally, the floor tom showed up over a week later with a completely different tracking number which was never provided to me. The shipper also refused to tell me if there was a second package on the way, so I had actually lost all hope late last week.
Anyway, the seller was extremely helpful in putting pressure on the shipper to insure I received the floor tom. I have sent the seller more funds for the kit because 1. how helpful they were and 2. clearly this was highly under valued. The seller did tell me that they were looking to unload the kit (due to plans to move) and they were aware it was worth more prior to listing it.
Anyway, the shells look very nice, however the hardware is trashed. It will be a long but fun restoration process. And No, the kit will not be for sale anytime in the near future.
