A couple more of my MIJ kits. My Baxter in nicely aged WMP, and 'Tiger Pearl' Star sets. I still need to do a thorough cleaning, put on new heads, etc, for both kits. Both will make fun gigging sets.

Cheers.

Hello Mike the drum sizes are 20" 12" (13" floor tom) and 14' snare

Hello Trilok Gurtu sorry I see I missed a kind reply from you a page or so back
Thank you about the collection I have been at it for a while ^5's

Hello drumfx
I have not heard of root beer swirl before ?

..I have heard of "root beer strata"
(still not sure what maker uses that name) and then there is "tiger eye pearl"
And I do have some examples of those and I really like that finish



That being said neither root beer strata or tiger eye pearl have any silver or copper in them
they are normally just alternating shades of lighter to darker amber or sort of a caramel color

The kit remarked about above, is some odd and equally beautiful variation
So far I have seen two kits (one pictured)
and an orphaned bass drum in this finish
All of those drums were wearing Zim Gar badges

Hello drumfx nice job there
when I responded to the local (South Boston) Craig's list
These re-wrapped shells were advertised as being Tama
I could see they were Ludwig Rockers
The wrap job is decent for the price I paid 60.00
for that I got a bass drum shell and three toms
Hoops but no heads and lugs on only one side of each drum
but the seller dug out a bag with most of the missing hardware
one mistake was whoever it was that re wrapped the drums
failed to place the overlap seam under a lug set
But that aside the new wraps were in pretty good shape
and the drums had never been fully reassembled.
I got back to my shop and unloaded the shells
But I left the bag of hardware in the back seat with a bunch of other stuff
a few weeks later, some person or persons decided to steal my battered old 1997 Honda wagon.
The car was gone without a trace and so was my rocker hardware
eight months later the car was recovered ..and while it was totally trashed
The rocker hardware was right where I left it
the second pic shows the re-assembled kit
I decided not to punch through the wrap
in order to reinstall the diamond mount receiver
I realize these are U.S.A. made but
Drumfx's GSF wraps inspired me to share I can delete if anyone objects
also speaking of orphans ..while the rockers were born together
the blue oyster kit next to them was completely orphan assembled

The leftover wrap for the asian kit was originally for this Gretsch 50's kit.
