8-12-16 and a 10" snare. Second kit for my son when he was 7 he is now 17.
Hopefully he will pass it down his little drummer.

I'll have to say my W&A all matching 12-67 set is the little Bad Kit Porn to add. Rare and beautiful. Equipted with Gretsch lugs 20,12 16x14 and matching 5x14 snare. This little set roars, but I'm still not into small bass drums. The set will be put away next month as my new dream set is delivered, but I'll sure look at em once in a while. What a sweet little set, and a piece of history as well!

Here are a couple. I have a few other vintage sets with 20" bass drums, and one more with an 18" bass drum.

The Slingerland set is from the late 60s with drums of 14x20, 14x14, 8x12. I have snare drums of Red Glass Glitter, Blue Glass Glitter, and White Marine Pearl that all go with the set. The Blue Sparkle Ludwig canister throne is a close enough color match.


The Rogers set consists of a 14x18 bass drum conversion from a cut down Fullerton floor tom, 14x14 Cleveland, 8x12 Cleveland, and a Jasper shell 8x10 custom made matching tom, and an Eagle Badge Spotlight snare. The same Ludwig Canister throne is pictured.

I'm liking more & more all W&A drums I've been seeing...........Very nice!
Do you have a large file photo of these drums you could email me? I've started a collection of some drum photos a year or so ago and I'd love to add yours but need a large file. Or you might have posted some elsewhere on the Forum in the past........a link? Ya.....very cool drums there.

Lots of cool drums being posted on the thread........ :occasion5:
