Early 1965 Keystone Super Classic in unfaded Red Sparkle. Drums were born together. Edges and roundness are excellent. Cosmetic wear is mild to minimal. Hoops can use a polish. All other chrome is very clean. Everything functions smoothly. Mahogany shells. All original scarf joint wrap with QC initials. Updated heads. Ready to play or quick detail and polish will help maximize this beauty.

13x9 serial 140xxx. Mahogany/Poplar/Mahogany. White muffler. One hoop is not original. All other hardware, including tension rods, is original. Early 60s script logo bracket. Minor tom rash. No extra holes/modifications.

16x16 serial 104xxx. Center shell Keystone placement. Mahogany/Poplar/Mahogany. White muffler. All hardware, save two tension rods, is original. Early 60s script logo brackets and knurling on floor tom legs. No extra holes/modifications.

22x14 serial 141xxx.
Mahogany/Poplar/Not sure. 5 claws are from a later era. All other hardware, including tension rods, is original. Bottom lugs show wear from ground friction. Early 60s script logo cymbal and spur brackets. No cymbal stand wing nut. Cross-sectional knurling on tom “L” mount. 2 extra holes exist to move the rail consolette to center. Not sure why, but the shell has four 1/16” holes in the wood however only one just barely makes it through the wrap (pictured). Wrap is original and into the scarf joint. Hoops and inlays are original.

CONUS Only. No trades. PayPal. Also listed on Reverb. Thanks for looking/commenting.

$1099 + shipping

Pretty impressive shape for 50+ years old! Wraps look awesome. They don’t make em like they used to...

Thanks! We have it pretty good when a classy mahogany set like this is still around at $1099.

Thanks! Ironically, it just sold on Reverb. You get the credit for adding that extra mojo. Thank you!
