Saw an ad for some timpani for sale and ive always wanted one because why not? Walked in and found these.
Trying to decide what to do. I've always wanted a red-white-blue as well as an oyster black kit (that is black, right?) So I'm off to a very slow start.
The Rogers- steel grey ripple?
And that's a Ludwig piccolo with a keystone badge.

It's a 16". Thanks for the replies. Haven't seen many oysters in the flesh so I all appreciate it.
Just gotta figure whether to build kiss around these or sell. Probably build a kit around the oyster if it's not cost prohibitive and sell the others.

That oyster blue would make a nice set. You can usually find a 22 inch bass and 13 inch tom; however, like oyster black, finding the other drums with a compatible/ uniform wrap match can be a challenge. What year is that blue oyster floor tom?

Yep, saw a beater 22 on eBay that went cheap right before I got it unfortunately!
