Oh yeah forgot to mention that floor is a 14x16 deep which I believe is unique to W&A sets.

This floor IS 14x14. Another reason I went and bought this set.

All confirmed. The other W&A set I have from 1960 has that truly unique FT sizes. Take a look at the mixed bag of metal goodness on that one! I LOVE this FT!!

Mark - another killer kit for your over the top killer collection - Congrats! If I may ask ... how many kits do you own now ? Also how do you deal with storage and display issues for your collection ? Are you maybe like BEC who I understand has a separate building (barn) for his collection ?

Just curious ... thanks for any comments ... again congrats on a killer vintage drum kit collection !

Drum Doug

Thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated. The set sounds amazing and I'm really happy with it's ease of tuning up too. THAT snare is incredible! I am currently at 34 kits. Including the 1963 Rogers set I have for sale here. Storage is an issue (just ask my kind & patient wife aka singer in 2 of my bands) so I have a 24 hour access studio where I keep a bulk of the collection. BIG time security there and all insured. I have 2 kits set up at all times there. I also always have a kit set up in the living room of our condo I rotate monthly (only use brushes on that one). Everything is displayed quite nicely here with the snares in a bookshelf setting. There's A LOT of drums crammed into our little place and I can't tell you how fortunate I am to have a wife that gets it. It would NOT happen with any other person then a musician. Yes, living in a condo in the city is getting old (as are we) so heading to MT in a few years. Some of the collection may be sold off when we go.

But I have a feeling most of it's coming with me to the grave.

And I do gig ALL OF IT! Yes Sir

There's a W&A set for sale around here on CL. It's also a mutt kit, a five piece in rock sizes, and I would love to nab it. The finish is Ludwig's Red Strata. They look great. The guy has been trying for what seems like a year to sell them, with no luck. He dropped his price $400 and then it disappeared and came back, and he raised the price back up. I guess he decided he wasn't going to give them away. The set supposedly belonged to his drum teacher, who ordered them directly from W&A.

Thank you Doug! I do count my blessings every day. She is an incredible woman. I hit the lotto for sure. I do sweeten the deal by getting her the matching vintage dress for every kit. It's our schtick when we gig that we match. People dig it too.

Happy Wife = Happy Life Kiss

Beautiful kit! I have a Walberg Jasper snare in the collection that I absolutely love. I grew up very close to Worcester and really love the history of this great company. Congrats and enjoy!

Sorry Markrocks68,

I looked at the 3rd picture and it looked like 14x16.

Enjoy
