Do you still have that kit you made yourself?
I think that was a bop kit, too....right?

I did make a Keller shell setup. More for portable than bop. 6x14 tom, 6x12 tom, 10x22 bass, and cymbal mounts, all flying off the bass drum.
Moved on down the road.

Yep, that's it (although I don't remember it being black).
Thanks for the update.

You saw them with a blue (sign) material. I put black speckled with gold, silver and white pieces.

My little Gretsch BOP kit on top of a house boat used as a stage for a private shore party. It was a fun gig! It was a challenge getting minimal equipment out to the lake and transported by boat to the house boat docked on an island in the middle of the lake.
