I love this color! And the "A" design on lugs and brackets appeal to me.....my name is Allan!
I have carefully restored these drums. It was a challenge and time consuming getting needed spare parts. I still need the original bass drum hoop mounted anchor and I do not think the bass drum spurs are original. I could also use an original bass drum mounted cymbal arm...and a complete hardware package! Chime in if you can help me.
This covering has a tendency to shrink and crack over time. Luckily this kit only has few cracks and the finish makes it hard to see unless you know.
