Default Tony the tiger

My late 60's yamaha's . i had this kit for a while now . i'm getting near the end of the resto . still missing the bass drum mount and 12" tom that came with it . i just love the wrap on this one it's near mint . i think some one on this site called it a red willow /red ripple my son calls it tiger . these drums have thin shells and the drums sound deeper than they look . i dont think it's gonna be easy to come across the missing parts . i guess thats why it came with 12" 14" 16" remo roto toms .

I've been drumming for 40 years and have never seen this pattern in red.I've seen yellow-gold,but never red.That is some rare set.

I have the same kit in that colour that I'm currently in the process of cleaning up (pic is pre clean up but they are in amazing condition). Mine is a 20-16-13-14. I have a whole spare set of lugs/mountings etc including the bass drum tom mount and the diamond bracket for the tom. Unfortunately I don't have a spare tom in that colour. I do have a same era spare Yamaha 13" tom but in a different wrap so not much good either. If you find a tom and need the BD mounting hardware, let me know.

I've already noticed that previously unseen finishes go in packs...
