VINTAGE 1950's Premier Big Band Outfit in Champagne Sparkle
- Vintage Drum Set.
- Sizes: 14x22 bass drum, 8x12 tom, 16x16 floor tom, 5x14 snare drum.
- Details & Notes: A player's Premier, though nonetheless a very captivating player's Premier. Beautiful, time worn champagne sparkle which has started to develop some speckling, paired with hand painted silver bass drum hoops with lush gold sparkle inlay, and classic big band and pop sizes make this kit a charmer, even with the character building wear and tear. Bass drum clip on spurs are missing and will need to be replaced, and the tom holder for the 12" tom is missing. The bass drum appears to have never been drilled for the tom mount, though it has had a Slingerland accessory mount for percussion or a cymbal arm installed. A few of the iconic slotted tension rods throughout the set up have gone missing and have been replaced with standard tension rods. The snare drum has seen some significant alteration from the original parallel snare system, as the original strainer and snare mechanisms are gone and have been replaced with a generic throw-off and a Ludwig butt plate, which do work just fine. The floor tom has seen some significant changes as well, primarily seen with the replacement legs, a few of which have some gap between the brackets and the shell. The internal tone control on this drum are pretty stuck and the top tone control is non functional. Shells are pre-international sizes, and most heads need replaced.
