VINTAGE 1937-1938 WFL Zephyr Lug Drum Set in White Marine Pearl
- Vintage Drum Set.
- Sizes: 12x22 bass drum, 8x12 tom, 9x13 tom, 14x16 floor tom.
- Details & Notes: This WFL outfit features a 12x22 bass drum, 8x12 and 9x13 toms, and a 14x16 floor tom. The 12x22 bass drum is a unique inclusion in this kit, as 12x22 wasn’t a commonly seen size during the Zephyr lug era of WFL, though it was advertised later in the 1950s with the “New Yorker” outfit which consisted of a 12x22 bass drum and a 9x13 tom, sometimes paired with a 12x15 or 16x16 floor tom. These drums are built with a classic combination of 3-ply mahogany shells with maple reinforcement rings. Drums feature clip on single flanged rims. There are no Badges on the drums except for a stick-on tag on the 8x12 tom which was used by WFL in their early years. These drums are likely from some of the original batches of shells made by the WFL company. The 9x13 tom was drilled for a badge alluding that it is younger than the rest of the set. Tone control is missing on the 14x16 floor tom, and there is only bass drum one clip on tom mounting bracket to share between the two tom toms. Leg mounting brackets on the 16" floor tom are later era WFL legs. These vintage shells provide ample thud and play best at low tunings.
