I've been amassing a collection of Ludwig pre-serial badge, gold-sparkle snare drums with nickel hardware. The other day, I had the idea to use my 6.5"x14" school festival as a rack tom and my 12"x16" field drum as a floor tom. Surprisingly, I absolutely love the combination. For the time being, I paired it with an orphan, refinished 12"x22" WFL kick. I would absolutely love to have a matching kick drum though. If you have a pre-serial badge, gold sparkle, Ludwig bass drum with nickel hardware, let me know. I would be happy with any conventional size 20" or larger. Here's my current, weird snare drum setup

And I suppose the notion to recover a donor bass drum has been contemplated and taken off the table?

I wish i could just re-wrap a donor shell, but modern good sparkle is way too orange compared to the vintage stuff. I haven't been able to find a good match from any major supplier and dont want to pay for a full sheet to be custom color matched.
