    It's an 18-12-14" kit.

    The bass is a converted floor tom, it has maple hoops and Rogers claws etc. Looks like a factory original .
    Memriloc mounts for tom arm and spurs in the proper locations. A good-sounding bass with almost new Aquarian heads.
    It has an 8x12 ride tom, and a 14x14 floor tom, all matching XP8 shells, all rewrapped in white marine pearl. The 14x14 had a hole in the shell that was repaired before the wrap went on, but it is a genuine 14x14 XP8 floor tom, a hard to find item.
    A modern kit, with a vintage look. I've used this kit at dozens of gigs, it sounds great.

    $650 shipped to the US48.

    Pix coming soon....

    Here are some pix.

    The kit has 50's Eagle badges on it, a little retro touch that I thought looked cool. The badges were polished and lacquered before mounting. I used grommets and screws to make them secure.

    The wrap is Vintage White Marine Pearl.

    The tom arm is included. Remo Powersonic head on bass batter, Aquarian Regulator on the front. Remo Suede heads on the toms, clear on the bottom.

    I have a COB Powertone I could include for an extra $250. It's got some bruises, scratches, weak chrome bottom hoop, pitted lugs. But it's all complete and it sounds great.
