"Big R'/XP-8/Fullerton Era kit for sale 13/16/24
I just joined this forum not long ago but I have been a longtime member/contributor at Vintage Drum Forum, where I have made over 900 posts since I joined in May 2010. My user name there is the same as here, minus the number 13, if you want to do any follow up on me. I've bought and sold many times on VDF, all with no problems. I wanted to offer this kit on this venue as well, as I'm sure someone could use this kit.
I'm not sure how to attach photos to this post (they are not hyperlinks, I have them on my computer). I'm glad to provide photos, just shoot an email to vyacheslav@[sign in to see URL] and I will reply with photos. Thanks!
This is a nice looking and nice playing kit. 9" x 13", 16" x 16", 14" x 24". Black gloss wrap. The toms are 8 ply with natural interiors (XP-8) and the bass drum is 5 ply with re-rings and gray interior, but all have the same lugs and hardware fittings. All shells are true and in round. Overall condition is very good, I would say 8+ out of 10. I'll go into detail about each drum below:
9" x 13" Rack Tom:
Overall very good condition. Serial Number D100771. XP-8, eight ply maple shell with natural interior. Chrome beavertail lugs are solid with minor pitting here and there. Wrap is tight at the seam and is in great condition. All original equipment. Original Rogers batter head, unbranded clear Ambassador weight reso head. There were two extra holes (probably for a Ludwig mount), but those have been professionally filled in and have been colored black so they are barely noticeable. When the tom is mounted in playing position, the covered holes are in about the 4 o' clock range (face towards floor tom).
16" x 16" Floor Tom:
Overall very good condition. Serial Number D103660. XP-8 eight ply maple shell with natural interior. Chrome pieces are in excellent shape, with some minor pitting here and there. Wrap is tight at the seam and is in very good condition, with a few scuffs and dings. All original equipment, with the exception of the rubber feet on the legs, which are exactly like the originals (they were missing when I acquired the kit). No extra holes. Original Rogers batter head, unbranded clear Ambassador weight reso head. There is a little "air bubble" at the bottom of the badge along with some black residue that won't come off.
14" x 24" Bass Drum:
Overall very good shape. Serial Number D717067. Five ply maple shell with re-rings and gray interior. All original equipment, with the exception of a hex head screw for the tom holder memory lock (key operated screw was missing). No extra holes.
Brand new Remo Fiberskyn 2 Medium Heads (no longer made). Each head comes with a removable felt strip for muffling. There is some pitting on the lugs and spur mounts. Most of the lugs are good; the ones with the more noticeable pitting I placed on the bottom of the drum, but still nothing major. Wood hoops have been re-painted and re-lacquered and look great and have the original, "ribbed mirror" inlay. Slight warping of batter hoop where the pedal connected. I moved it to the 9 o' clock position so it would be out of the way for the pedal now. There is slight lifting of one of the seams of the wrap, but nothing major (the other seam is fine). The seam that has the slight lift is at around 3 o' clock when viewed from the batter side (opposite the badge). Overall wrap is good, with some scuffs and dings. A few of the T-Rods are slightly bent, but again still usable and nothing major. A few of the claws have some minor pitting and a tad bit of rust, but is only noticeable upon very close inspection.
I thoroughly cleaned and polished this kit meticulously myself, using non-abrasive cleaners and methods. Again, I'm happy to provide pics, just let me know. $600 plus shipping. I am also willing to meet within 100 miles of Cincinnati, which would include Lexington, Louisville, Indianapolis, Columbus or Dayton.
