DB! Great looking Duet outfit!

I've loved the Duet since I saw it in my first drum catalog, the '68 edition given to me by my high school music teacher.

I purchase the pictured kit on eBay some years ago. The 20/16/12 were offered for sale as a kit and I had to get the matching Artist snare drum separately. The second 12" tom was also available separately, but was the shell only, which I purchased. I inquired as to why there was no tom mount on the bass drum and the seller told me it was because the set was originally a Duet, but the second bass drum was sold off years before. Bummer!

As you can see, I added a Maxwell rail mount on the bass drum for the 12" tom, which works great! It's just a shame that the other bass drum was sold off. I would have loved this as a Duet!

The green glass is eye popping. I've never come across a green sparkle kit in a music store. I've seen a few online, but they were either very expensive or the wrap had gone south. It's a great looking finish. Good luck with the sale!

I bought them from a guy who got the set as a 10-year old kid in 1968. He played around with them for a year and then packed them up until recently. They are in spectacular condition.
