    My LA Camco 20" bass drum has 8 lugs .

    You say you may have overpaid ? How much were they ?

    The re-ring in the bass drum is a little unusual in that rather than a solid piece of maple it looks a like a ply ring:

    My 20” has 8 lugs and my 22” has 10. I believe the 22” LA were 8 lugs usually also. The 24” were 10 lugs I thought.

    I believe you can actually change the title yourself. At least it use to be that way.

    The rerings should be plies. Looks correct to me.

    This is a common misconception about Camco. They are not thin shells.

    Congratulations on an awesome looking kit Ryan! That bass drum does seem pretty special. I didn't see if you mentioned...are the numbers on the drums all the same (754)? You're fortunate that snare has the original strainer.

    Yes , all have matching numbers!
    And yes so glad the snare wasn’t redrilled, much like my George Way Snare :/
