Looks like a set that was added to over time.

Maybe bass and 8x12 initially (B&B lugs - something like a Skyline outfit), then the 16 and then the 13 (Fullerton era -see location of the tone control) added in along with a double tom mount. Depending on timing, the Luxor may have been added-in with the 16. Later on he added Pearl tension rods and claws at the front (probably because the originals got lost when he was playing opened-headed in the late 60's early 70's).

In my view, the asking price is not realistic.

That was my thought. Anyone paying that price wants unmodified drums. It may be worth $3k plus to the owner but it will be difficult to get that.

Incredibly overpriced for what they are! I'm sure the owner played them lovingly over the decades and all the additions over years were to his liking. As such, this becomes more of a personal attachment and an unrealistic price. He fails to realize that the vast majority that might be interested only care about the original drums and really don't want heavy duty hardware and cymbals that they may not care for.

This is an all too frequent way of selling drums...just include everything for a very high price and hope than someone will buy them. Unfortunately, this almost never happens.
