I don't remember seeing that style of bass drum leg before. Looks odd - or am I just seeing it wrong? Anybody know which legs those are?

The ad tag line is: "This out especially designed for Buddy Rich...," suggesting we're looking at a one-of-a-kind drumset.

Frank, if you look at any of the old drum ads they use the term "outfit" like we would use "kit" and "set" today. What also catches my eye from old ads is the term "dance" which refers to a much different musical style than today.
