My franken mapex kit.

Two older Mars toms, Horizon bass drum and an mpx snare.

I just picked up the bass drum last week. Not sure what l am going to do with them. Cheapie yamaha, tama, mapex etc kits are a dime a dozen and even at that they are a hard sell. I couldn’t be bothered with fire sale tire kickers so l might donate them instead.

Have a great res5 of your weekend and stay safe

I donated my Tama kit to the local University. The music department was very grateful and I got paperwork from the Administration for a tax right off. Might be something to consider
I am going to donate that kit to the Hope Mission, which is an Edmonton inner city resource centre. A former neighbour of mine works for them and runs a musical outreach program. As much as l would be too much of a drum snob to play these, they will be much appreciated.

l am going to toss in some sticks, cymbals, extra heads, but no hardware as l don’t have any to spare.

Thanks for the suggestion, a good one indeed.

Stay safe and have a great live music weekend all

Four Piece 1969 Pearl gem :)
Valencia model with factory original wrap in beautiful condition.
Drum sizes:
20x14bd
12x8 and 14x14 toms
14x5.5 snare
I bought these in a local 2nd-hand shop about 8 years ago.
9ply shells with the factory painted gray interiors.
I have 4 nice Gretsch sets but I set these up every so often and play them for a few weeks. I'm always surprised at how good they sound. A fun little set to play.
The drums came to me without a pedal, hihat or cymbal stands.
The Pearl Catalog ad shows the 1969 Pearl Valencia drums in Black Pearl.... my drums are in Blue Pearl according to the 1969 Pearl catalog.

Holy mother of...what a dream kit. I'll now sit and stare at this kit for a minimum of 5 minutes even though a dynasonic is missing. Is that a rogers drum key I see on your 16?.
I had a mint 1970 WMP Powertone set I sold that I kind of regret now... Not too fussed about a Dynasonic, usually I play that set with a Pre Serial COB Super 400..and a full set of pre serial 602's.. That's a Copper phonic with the '69 set.P1011682.JPG
