Mike Layton hasn't seen these yet. When he does he's going to flip. Stunning kit, excellent condition, super rare finish. Winning combination. Another great buy Mark!

That IS a real cause for celebration. You are courageous and your perseverance is to be admired, not to mention those awe-inspiring drums. Beautiful! D.

The time we have on this planet is short. As I get older, I want to be able to remember all of it. It CAN be done.
