That looks awesome. So, if you don’t mind me asking, how much does Chris charge for that work?
It was $250, he was really great to work with. He does have a bit of a line, though. The whole thing took about two months.

Got this about a month ago. Summit Drums 4x14 in Black Cherry. Another masterpiece from Gary Posey.

Bought this 60’s Ludwig 16” floor tom a while back. Added it to my more modern Classic Maple Ringo kit though it does sound very different from the classic maples.
Might sell this in the future. We’ll see.

It ain't much but I'm trying out an Emperor X on the ol' A&F raw aluminum... Not the match up snare /head you'd naturally expect. But curiously this little 6 lugger sounds great for heavily muffled and processed tones wich the Emperor X might help me achieve more easily... So far it seems to lean in the right direction, it sounds a bit crushed-808 without any compression on at all, so we're gonna be in Ash Soan/Sterloid territory when I'm done...7

It was too good of a deal to pass up! last owner bought to record a album and they ended up using another dummer. I fell in love with them immediately. 13,16, 24. Insane base; and, that wrap… love it! I was able to donate my old kit that I fixed up (my first kit) to a school that is starting a music program. I feel good that kids will get to bang away, drive teachers nuts and have fun with it!

That's a beauty!!
Are you positive that they aren't the original hopes?
I had an Imperialstar King Beat and it had die-cast hoops. Always thought they were original, but I could be wrong.
These are newer, the bottom hoops have the gates. These are probably Tama or Gibraltar.
