26, 13, 16. Had them shipped across to Australia in ‘15.

Bass drum has both 1st and 2nds owner’s names and addresses written with the date on the inside of the shell in pencil. First one is ‘47, 2nd says ‘59.

Finally found a set of classic fit ambassadors and the toms really came to life. Just wish they’d start making a 26” version.

Cymbals are 50s A 20” thin, 60s A 22” med-thin and 16” custom hats by Craig Lauritsen.

Snare is a 14x6.5” jarrah stave with 30deg edges by Paul Warry at Metro Drum, the guy who makes the exotic George Way and Sleishman shells.

Here is a photo from 2008 of my 1975 "Blakrome" Slingerland kit. 12", 13", 16", 18" and a virgin 22" bass drum. I've owned it since 1992, but I saw this exact kit (It is sort of unique) in the window of a drum shop in 1975. It was my dream kit at the time. I still own it, but I have not played a gig with it as a six piece in a long time. The second photo is of it in a four piece configuration at a gig in 2008.
