Vid below, and to say it again, a 12 x 8 RB tom. There is distortion in this vid but it is not a 12 x 10.

No it’s not. But that’s not the only set he ever used with the Winos. The 10x12 is real. Believe it. Some of us were around for that.

Thought this would be of interest. Here's Steve with the Winos actually playing the kit with, yes, the 12x10 and what does appear to be a 14x14. There's a shot of him early on from behind and the FT looks proportionally to be a 14.

Rock 'n roll.

Doesn't look like a RB to me. Looks like a SSB. The lettering on the badge is oriented horizontally, not curved. I think it's the kit with the drums from Charlie's early-'70s Black Nitron kit.

I'm going to guess that one of these kits was stored in the U.S. and one in Europe. That explains the use of the two different toms.

Man between Steve and Charlie Keith had two of the best drummers around - SLAMMING pockets.
