The spurs on the reissue kit are different along with not being a three-ply. I've seen photos from recording sessins where he just uses a snare stand to hold the rack tom but he has used both. I don't know for sure if he ever used just a swivo with the natural kit. I haven't seen enough photos. One thing I've been curious about, though. What was the actual depth of the kicks (the kit came with 2) on his natural mapel kit? They seem to look deeper than 14 inches in the pics I've seen. For that matter, did he own more than one?
