That's a gorgeous kit!

And that's an interesting library of used heads behind it... makes it easy to experiment with a new config?

Thanks!! There were only 100 of them made...Jason has 001/100...

Yes, I have accumulated a vast amount of heads over the years which helps determine the best head for a particular drum without spending a fortune buying and trying different heads to get the best sound...

Cheers

The condition... O... M... G... there are NO cracks on any lug at all. There are some very minor scratches. Chrome lugs shiny with almost no pitting.

Talking to the young man who traded them, I found out more of the set's history.
  • Ordered for a music store, but never sold. Owner of the store liked the kit and kept it.
  • Never gigged, just kept in the store.
  • Store owner retired, sold the set to the young man.
  • The young man has several sets, likes to collect them. He played the Vistalite some, never gigged it because of the risk of damage. He wanted my DW kit to gig with.
I've attached photos, but it's cloudy/rainy today so there's no good light. Over the weekend, when the sun comes back out I'll move it in front of a big window and get photos with some good backlighting. It needs a general light cleaning.

SCORE !i Maroon or red something Lites with pointy badges and collectable condition,...Holy sh*t.
