    I was gifted my cousins kit this past Xmas that was in his sisters garage just collecting dust. He sadly passed away in 02 at 32 years old but loved to drum, it runs in the family as both my brothers also play the drums professionally.
    This kit is made up of a 20” and 12” Ludwig [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]in a yellowed silver sparkle and a rare Walberg & Auge 14” floor Tom. The snare is a 70’s Pearl Ultratone. Going to restore them but hoping to save the wrap, polish them up and new heads.

    Reading of the passing of Neil Peart (January 7) made me think of when he appeared
    on David Letterman's "Drum Solo Week". Then, seeing the Gene Krupa clip above, I
    wanted to compare the two. Not really a comparison I guess, but I got a bigger kick
    from Krupa. In case you're interested, here's the Peart - Letterman clip...

    I’m building out of pieces a Club Date/ Jazzette style kit for my 7 year old daughter. 17, 14, 12 and 14 jazzfest snare. I’m making maple hoops for the 17 kick that was a marching band tenor.
    All shells are 65-67.

    The snare and 12 I have to re-wrap to match the sparkle. I need a baseball bat muffler for the snare still and correct style throw off. I got a round knob mflr to stick in the bass.
    The 14 was a snare, I’ve almost got all the correct straight leg mounts so it can begin a new life as floor tom. I’m filling the snare beds, and putting fresh bearing edges on all shells. The 12 was ruff but cheap and the hardware cleaned up well.
    All of this is to have a cool vintage kit that sounds good but not too loud in the house.

    That’s going to be a cool kit! I built my kid a Keller kit...he gave up on the drums long ago but picked up a guitar and he is getting pretty good...likes jazz , the blues and Johnny Marr.
