Hi there...

I have a 6 piece XP8 kit that I bought new in 1982. It is a mix match color kit I got from Guitar Center when they were clearing out the brand. The rack toms are deep (12x12, etc). They sat for about 25 years. I just pulled them out, cleaned them up, put new heads on them and they sound even better than I remember!!! I have been thinking about pulling the wraps and finishing in natural maple and posted about possibly cutting the deep toms down to standard sizes as I mostly play jazz now and want to have the toms down and in a flatter position and get the benefits of sound and tuning for the type of music I play. Any thoughts on that? I posted about cutting the toms in the Working on Them/Restoration section. Drums are in excellent condition except for the wraps starting to lift at the seams a little bit.

Dave

12 midnight mist, 13 metallic silver, BD, 16, 18 floor toms are white. They are in mint condition except for a slight seperation of the wrap at the seam on the floor toms. No pitting, rust, all original. Keepers for sure. Coated ambassaders on batter and clears on the reso. Powerstroke Pro BD head and original XP8 reso on the BD.
