Thanks for all the comments and help. I'm going to start the assembly process this week. I'll post pictures along the way. They were taken care of but played as well so they need a bit of TLC. I can't wait to set them up!!

I drooled over this set on eBay for months, it seems. I'm glad I don't have to fret about them any longer. I really dig the Moss Green finish.

Agree with you Dan,...

... and what about the silver inlays on the BD hoops?

Normally Camco drums with natural finishes didn't have inlays.

Anybody here knows more about that?

I drooled over these for months as well. I probably emailed the lady 50 times about selling without the stands before she finally made me an offer I couldn't refuse. The silver sparkle inlays look so awesome. I wish the hoops weren't faded so bad. It would have been great to see how the original Moss Green looked against them.

Anyway, here is the snare drum before and after a coat of stain. The color matches the unfaded parts (under the mounts) perfectly! Kinda makes me wish the rest of the drums were in worse condition so I could refinish them all. I still have to put a coat of poly over the stain before I can button it up and play it. I should have the snare finished in the next day or two.

I went to a local Sherwin Williams Paint store and had them mix a can of Minwax water-based stain. The color is called "Green Tea." Unfortunately they only mix a minimum of one quart so I have enough to stain another 100 drums. The whole can was about $12. Maybe I'll build a Keller/DW 12" clone to match...

Late in on this one but colour in the lacquer was how they were done (as Stedi points out). I've got a similar potential project but just one moss green Oaklawn bass drum and a lot of odd formerly lacquered drums that may one day go green.

I've seen the occasional lacquered kit with an inlay. Certainly remember a black lacquer kit with a similar silver sparkle inlay. Probably just an ordering option. I wouldn't overthink it.

Looks like a dead-on match to me. Excellent job on that snare! Great save for the kit.

Too many great drums to list here!
