It's been almost 2 years since I grabbed an end-70's Mahogany Superstar with satin finish for almost no money but I just wanted to show you what it ended up like.

Maybe some purists won't like the woodhoops but I think they look nice on this set. Enjoy...

Hi all,
I'm new to the forum and wanted to share my 60's MIJ Stewart story:

I got this used Stewart kit in 1970 when I was 14 and played in a rock band all through high school, then life happened and they sat in a closet in my parents basement for the next 43 years.Well this year they sold their house and the drums were returned to me, so I decided to restore and clean them up and start playing again. Took them completely apart, tightened every screw, scrubbed and polished the now yellowed WMP wrap and all the chrome hardware, replaced any broken hardware and two new cymbal stands and new snare stand, all new Remo coated ambassador heads and oh yeah...treated myself to a whole new set of Zildjian "A" pies (Sweet).

Drums are: 14X20, 9X13, 16X16 and 5.5X14, Cymbals are: 20" medium ride, 18" thin crash, 18" medium thin crash and 14" new beat hats.

They turned out better than I expected and they sound great and I am having a blast playing them again at 62 (never too old to rock n roll)
