    VERY thankful to end a great year with an incredible set❤️
    The is my 1959 Transition Badge Super Classic No. 980P Outfit in Oyster Black Pearl with yup, the optional 14 x 14 FT. Once again many thanks to Steve Maxwell Vintage Drums for another off the chart kit
    Drums are dated as follows in red ink on the beautiful mahogany shells:
    14 x 22 bass drum May 6 1959
    9 x13 tom May 6 1959
    5.5 x 14 snare July 22 1959
    14 x 14 FT unreadable
    First couple of pictures by Steve. Then what showed up. Then all cleaned up second set. The drums just needed a good loving cleaning. The condition is incredible. All 4 scarf joints there & original calfs on tom and bass drum. I've been salivating all over them since last Friday when they arrived. They sound incredible. They sing. First gig this Thursday & I'll be using them for the remaining 4 gigs this year including NYE.
    My kind of Xmas miracle.
    Thanks Santa :santa:
