I recently scored a Zickos kit on Craigslist in need of a lot of work. Apparently the drum were in storage in a barn for over 20 years. The drums are in fair condition with a crack in the bass drum and one in the snare. The toms are single head concert toms. Also the sizes seem strange - two 14" rack toms, 18" floor tom, 22" bass drum and a 6x14" snare. I can't decide if they are worth restoring or not. Opinions?

I use to have the same set but double headed toms. Measure the depth of the bass drum. I bet it is deeper than 14. That will never catch on!

I measured the drums and was surprised. Rack toms are both 10x14" and the floor tom is 18x18". Bass drum is 18x22" and the snare is 6.5x14".

Bonzoholic, the Ghost pedal is in pretty good shape. I haven't tested it out thoroughly, but it appears to have not been played very much. The DW 5000 in the picture is another story.

trixonian, thanks for the information. It is the "380" kit. I didn't get the tom arms, spurs or floor tom legs for it though. But it does have the matching snare.

My snare is only a 6, not a 6 1/2.

I forgot about the Vox amp. It is a Vox Scorpion guitar amp. The guy threw it in with the drums because he just wanted to get rid of it. Almost couldn't get it into my car with the drums.
