I found this Pearl Professional MLX 5pc including 1st gen Free Floater Snare made in Japan gloss black inside shells mid 80s.
It was 10 miles from my house on CL. 22x16,16x16,13x11,12x10 & 14x6.5 steel free floater snare. It also came with 2 sets of hardcases & a 5pc set of d drum triggers. I thought $500.00 was a decent deal. I sold the cases & triggers so I wound up with spending $250.00 in the end.

Speaking of cases, check out ransan's Rogers snare case. It's not much to look at, but it has metal corners everywhere, and even the lid/case mating surfaces are metal. They don't make 'em like that any more!

Got some Aquarian Focus-X coated batter heads for my toms! Extremely happy with them. They’re like a Powerstroke but drier and more controlled! My instructor has coated P3s on his toms, and after he came over and heard how I tuned mine, he loved them! Gonna get the power dot version now for one of my snares.

Made a trade of kits today for this Sonor Vintage Series kit 20/12/14 . I had previously owned a Sonor Vintage series kit in the discontinued Onyx finish ( high is why I sold it - could not find add ons): This is my favourite finish in the Vintage series. They are also my favourite line from Sonor .

Nothing super unique this time, just a Gibraltar stand and mounting plate.

But I did want to give a shout out to Erik and the Edrumcenter. This combo was about $10 less than other online retailers and I had it here in 2 days.

*edited to resize the photo to something more manageable.
