Default Revere drums (Kent)

The restoration/refurbishing of the Revere/Kent set is 90% complete. I'm going to invent a part to mate a clip mount to the standard ratcheting tom arm rather than use a hoop mount,which I don't have anyway. The plies on the front of the bass drum were separated and warped and the wrap had come loose on one side. They had NO BEARING EDGES, just sawn and thrown together. By looking at the head logo's I'd say they hadn't been played in close to 50 years. Just need to dial in the bass drum sound and they are all good. I have always loved the tone of Kent toms, like a little tympani...Oh,man the glue on the inside of the shells. Must have been a Friday set.
