Yeah they werent very good for holding a heavy ride up through a little bit of pounding, but I actually still have the original L bar and cymbal mount for my '60 s Ludwigs. I havent used any of the bass drum mounts for years but never lost em!...Imagine placing a 24" Rude ride on that, lol. Which is why using it for something light like a cowbell or splash makes alot more sense.

As far as setting up outside, I happened to have a Township cop living across the street. He came over to warn me/us about 3 times then threatened to sign a complaint... He never said exactly what for but when you have a cop for a neighbor... you try to stay on his good side. So we kept it inside after that.

Give me a few years and I ll post a few pics of me rockin out around the age of 11-13. I have to find them first. Still playin the same set too!

Ian, Even the cheapest hardware of today is a thousand times better that the hardware from those sixties kits!
The tom mount was also a piece of crap!
I use lightweight stands and hardware on two of my current kits. I have no problems with it.
The stands are sturdy and light. Even inexpensive hat stands and bass pedals work well today.

I can't wait to see your early pics.
I kind of like old drums:)
