Visited the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix and took some photos of the drum sets on display. There were some remarkable and special kits on display and one that did not belong in the museum.

First up Louie Bellsons kit

And then on display in the Rock and Roll section I saw this:

This kit was donated by Fender to the museum but I'm thinking there was some kind of misunderstanding. This kit belongs in some kids garage or a practice band space not on display in this Museum. I'm issuing a plea to Gretsch to donate or loan a more significant kit for the Rock and Roll section. There must be a more historical drum set that can be lent for museum display.

That's hilarious- what the hell were they thinking??

Also- very cool that you can actually go visit a Musical Instrument Museum (I'm assuming there was more than just drums there)?

Yes an amazing museum with instruments from all over the world. With audio samples of everything. Highly recommended and worth a special trip to Phoenix.
