Glad you liked it... as a matter of fact Rhys is still playing them as well:
All pix are from 2011.
He is currently playing with a local Southern California band, the Michael Chain Band. Surprised they are still open headed, would have thought he would have converted them to double headed. He got these drums when he first started touring with Billy Joel in November 1971, making them now 40 years old... From the pictures the FT is a 16 inch, and the top toms are 12 and 13 inchers. Now the bass drum, I have trouble discerning if it is a 22 or 24.
