Very cool drums.
I have to ask though...if your grandfather's initials are CB why does the bass drum have JD in the shield on the front head? Just curious...did he buy them used with that head or have a stage name?

May have been a previous owner , or the initials of the band leader or the association or club that the band represented /was sponsored by .

Never saw those mounts on the bass drum before?

I think it has to do with the band he was in but I'd have to ask him.
