nickel plated brass engrave (embossed) double flanged rim.
NOTE; the light fixture mounted
inside the bass drum shell. The fixture also contains an element
"Beacon" which makes the light bulb flash on and off
after it's heated up. However, most likely the fixtures' original
application was that of a heating element to 'tighten up' the
calf skin bass drum heads (in cold and/or humid weather) so the
drummer could actually 'tune up' and play the instrument. Now,
using a new switch, I turn it on during 'break time'.
The 9x13" tom is fitted
with the original bass hoop tom mount. Also, fitted with "Fiber-Skin"
NOTE; the felt piece between
the tom mount and tom shell is placed there as a buffer to prevent
any scratches to the WMP finish.

Floor tom tom interior construction.
NOTE; factory designation with the large 'G'.
(2) cymbal 'L' arms (different

This drum set was hand made.

sit down at them you can feel their 'swing'. "Sing, Sing,
