Both of my teardrop sets have straight legs, without any knurling.

I don't think so. Teardrop ran to 72 or 73 and could have Champion legs and those aint it.

I didn't notice any in the rack or floor tom when I put some new heads on them. I will look more carefully when I break the drums down to polish them. The rack has coated on both sides. The floor has a clear head on the reso and I can't see anything other than some sort of red hand written stuff that I can't make discern what it says. The lighting was not good where I was tinkering with them.

I did notice the floor tom has a round muffler and the rack had a muffler with 2 felts on it.

I needed to find some mufflers for a set I bought recently. The round mufflers seems set for the toms. The dual pad seemed for the snare. Not absolute, but based on info I did come across.

- If you do not find a chrome rod (I have not) for the bass drum cymbal rod, I will be using a 5/16" stainless rod from hardware store. Local store had one when Home Depot did not. Also on Amazon if desperate. Found 3' rod and cut to length, though might find a 2' in some places.

Pics of the kit can narrow it down.

Here are pictures from the seller. I have not taken any yet myself. I've only given them a cursory Windex cleaning and put on some used heads I had laying around.

I plan to polish up the chrome once I get a chance.

The tom mount is not original. I have been looking for a reasonably priced one, but need to see if the current one has left a mark / indention in the wrap, before I spend money replacing it. I assume it will probably look better to leave the current one.

Has anyone had luck fixing bubbled wrap? I have read where some people have heated the area with a hair dryer to try and soften the glue underneath to get it to re-stick. I assume I would need to leave it clamped for a while, but am not too hopeful that is really a viable long term solution.
