Default Please ID these drums - Krupa

Hello

Please forgive me if I'm overlooking something obvious here but does anyone recognise which brand of drums Krupa is using here? The top tom tom has offset lugs.

Sorta looks like a Gene Krupa Jr. outfit or a Swingstar outfit with added tom, checkout the offset lugs with an added bottom muffler. Looks like a student kit of some sort, not really sure. Hard to tell what the lugs are (on my screen anyway), SE Cigars?...they look like SK lugs though. Very odd, will be interested to see what the real experts say.

I'm going to say Gretsch.There is a set on the guide with staggered tube lugs-why not staggered "old"lugs-What are those style called?

My first thought was Gretsch Rockets too but I couldn't make the leap.

Anyone know for sure?

ALSO

These are Ludwig Imperial lugs on Krupa's set here aren't they...?
