Nice to see that snare with original parts on there! I wish the chrome was better on the strainer I sold you but as I mentioned these are super hard to find and you just have to take what you can get. The whole set looks great!

The strainer is honestly a perfect match! There's some plating missing from the top rim (from years of rimshots, I assume), so the strainer doesn't look out of place at all.

I finally got the bass drum cleaned up!

I'm done with the whole set now. I'll take pictures eventually.

Does anyone happen to have some matching WFL spurs, or a hi-hat stand? Those are my last 2 missing parts.

Beautiful!! There are two pairs on Ebay right now, but both nickel. Might be worth it to get one pair case it take forever to find the chrome. The chrome plated version are much harder to find.

None of the current ebay offerings are quite a perfect match, so I think I'll hold out a bit longer! But yes, finding a pair in chrome any time soon is quite doubtful...

I may have already posted here - or maybe on your gallery picture - but, MAN! the green with zephyr lugs is so gorgeous! Good luck completing it.
