You didn't happen to take measurements! : )

Thanks Mikey777. It's these stories that make this place so rich.

Lee, Yes the cross were "maltese" ones on both bass drums..I seem to call the measurements of the cross i THINK were 6" ot 7" across and up and down but iam not sure..Another side note on the bass drums the inside plates were one piece that went from the top two lugs of each bass drum,if i recall right these steel plates were 1/4" thick and mounted under the top two lugs and mounts of the drums..Mikey
