On the left, a Tama Stagestar (I took the 8x10 rack tom off). Sizes are 14x18 bass drum (standard bop size), 8x12 rack tom and 12x14 floor tom. I have a Gretsch round badge snare drum on the kit in the photo.

On the right: DW Buddy Rich tribute kit.

Beautiful kits. Can you give us a close-up shot of the lugs used on the BR Tribute kits?

My only WMPs. The Radio King is a mid-late 1940s 3-ply, which I recently cleaned and set up. It has a couple of replacement throw parts and the snares are replacements (I have the original snares), but everything else is original. The W&A is an RGB 1968 single tension with jasper shell. You can see the sparkle in the WMP in the closeup. I still have all the original hardware for it, minus the bottom hoop - it now has all replacement hardware to make it tuneable and useable.

Gretsch (called it in the 40s-50s) Oriental Pearl. I don't that's ever been revived; maybe somebody here knows .

JDA, check out this video just posted over on the Matt Chamberlain thread. Isn't this that same finish on his 1948 Broadkasters? I'd love to see this finish revived.
