My April '70 BO Bowling Ball Super Classics are the easiest of all my kits to get what I want out of them & are the most stable tuning-wise. I love all 3 of my Ludwig kits, but this kit cooperates with me on that extra level.
PS: the ugly pink tape is social distancing markers (and only a reflection on the kick)

Thx to Treviso1 for sending me photos and answering my questions about what I need to set up my new roto toms like he did his. The 14" is an early 80's drum that had been sitting in a box somewhere and the 16" is the same but from the late 80's.Both drums had never been played. My favorite kit at the moment. Will be adding Roland pads to the mix for a band I joined before Covid for a gig in August. Here's to many more after!

Just got a new set, haven't tried it but I just assembled it in my appartment while being under lockdown to be able to admire it, and it will become the favorite for sure.
Gretsch USA Custom Gold Glass Nitron, 24x18, 16x16, 12x9 and 10x8. Matching Broadkaster 14x8 snare drum with 42 strand snare wires.

‘59? Nice!
Not sure , interiors were repainted by someone else and had no badges when I received them.
Its a players kit with lots of extra holes filled but it sounds great and looks great.

Recently had the 13 and 16 recut and added some inde spurs, tom mount and pearl Iso feet to the floor legs which work very well.

My one irreplaceable kit is my little bastard Gretsch. I went to see Bill Evans in 1977 and ran into the great Jim Baum, who was eager to offload a drum kit. (He wanted a wrapped Gretsch bop kit because that was what Tony played) It's extremely bastardized from a vintage collector viewpoint. It started with an 18" Camco bass drum. Jim put Gretsch hardware on, then refinished some Gretsch toms and a snare to match. My contribution was throwing all the mufflers away. Sometime later I quit drums for 8 years. One Christmas, my wife came to me and said, "When we take the tree down, why don't you set up that pretty Gretsch kit? You aren't the same person when you don't play drums" BTW, mods, holes, and other things aside, this kit sounds beautiful.
