Really nice set and wonderful color: is that the original wrapping? Any work on the shells?

I am pretty sure that is not an original tom mount on the bass drum and the small tom. Those are very nice drums though. Peace and goodwill.

Agreed. My 1977 Slingerlands had the swiv-o Tom mount and was much lighter. I broke mine about three times! Lovely drums though. Makes me wish I was 10 again. :(

You are correct sir, someone installed a Premier mount on the kick and tom, for that reason this is not a "collectors" kit. The wrap is orignal and both mufflers are in place, as well as the sticksaver hoops. I believe the drums are 3ply maple/poplar/maple with maple reinforcement hoops, with clear interiors. The shells are in round and as you can see by the photo's the wrap is very vibrant. The lugs an hoops have little to no pitting and they sound fantastic, thanks.

If it is a 1966 set, the shell composition is probably maple - poplar - mahogany with solid maple reinforcing ring. See this Vintage Drum Guide page: http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/drcj...3_shells9.html

I believe the interior is maple because it's light in color, the mahogany interiors would be darker or they used a beige color paint, either way, they sound great.

I think he meant that the exterior ply was mahogany, because it's wrapped, and that's what Ludwig and Slingerland did.

With all of the fuss over "depth x diameter" vs. "diameter x depth" (is the tom 12x8 or 8x12...???), I wonder why there isn't a standardized way of describing the three ply shells, like inner/middle/outer or outer/middle/inner...maybe I should bring this up over at VDF so we can set a standard...

I always say 8x12 and you may be right about the exterior being mahogany.
