    Default Set Identify

    Can someone help me identify what kind of drums set this is. It has not tags on it and I can't figure it out. I had someone tell me it is a old Slingerland set. But Im not sure.

    Welcome SMW. I am guessing it might be a Tama.

    Obviously it's hard to tell without badges, but the tom mounts don't look like Slingerland to me. Did they every use that kind of mount? I know they didn't on vintage kits.

    I agree with BLD that they look like Tama, but I don't recall Tama every having that style BD mount. Not to mention, in looking over their old catalogs, I don't see that finish with that hardware. The BD hoops, the hooks, and particularly the posts on the tom mounts look like old Tama. And about those posts, if memory serves that's an 80's style mount. Didn't most "vintage" kits use the rail mount?

    Les is probably right, probably just a knock off. Give us some more pics, and/or try to find some markings, serial no's, etc... to help us help you out.

    The tom mount doesnt matter. It is not original.

    Japanese cookie cutter, 1960s. Pull a lug, it might say pearl on the inside.

    Oh you think someone put that on after the fact? Could be.

    The finish obviously looks 60's or 70's. If the tom mount isn't original, the drums actually remind me of my first kit when I was 10, a late 70's Ludwig, but I don't think they are.

    No pearl on the inside. There is no markings of any kind on the drums. Namer ETC.
    So you think it is a old tama with an different tom mount.

    Reason I think it is a Tama is, my band's drummer has one and it looks very similiar. His is black.

    Definitely not Slingerland. Wrong lugs and wrong hoops. Japanese for sure.

    essentially that could be an after-market wrap as well... and if the lugs and harware were rusted they could've been swapped out too with the wrap... just too add more confusion to the plate.

    Pretty cool looking what ever it is . Nice wrap , its in good shape too. I think its interesting where the BD spurs are located . Good luck and have fun with it.

    The four holes with carriage bolts.......... are evidence of an old rail mount. This puts it earlier 60s. You never stated shell construction. Im betting the drum is very heavy, the shell very thick, and the bearing edges nonexistant. Shell material will be Luan. This is a crap drumset. The T's are typical cheap no name stencil kit fodder. The spurs, are steel rod fitted into a bushing spur mount, with rather cheesey wing screws. Inside the shell a single nut screws down on the bushing. Top dollar............ under 100.

    Looks like an old CB 500 set...starter set.
    There's a lot to be said for Time Honored tradition and value.

    what you have right there is a 1960's Reuther drum kit. i can tell because it still has the original tension rod housings and the original tom mount housing. the tom mount itself has been swapped out with a late model DW tom mount... i have the same one. there has been alot of modification to the kit, most of the tension rods, floor tom legs, and kick drum hoops look like tama, those tension rods on the kick drum are nice because you dont have to have a drum key to tune them.

    pretty cool old kit though man, it looks vintage with alot of new hardware.

    Essentially a Japanese cookie cutter set that were being churned out by the boatload by Pearl and Tama in the 60s. Made in response to America's new found passion for drums.
    Thanks in large part by Ringo Starr and Charlie Watts. While not really collectable, certainly cool enuf to clean up, add some updated hardware and heads and take to a gig or two! -Les

    well now wait a min. i may be wrong, when i veiwed the thread right after this one, "its a wrap" http://www.drumchat.com/showthread.p...wrap-8067.html i compared pictures of both kits, and the tension rod housings look exactly the same, minus some newer tom suspension and different tension rods in the other thread. try to compare these kits, and see if you see what i am seeing. i might be wrong on this one, but the kit in this thread may acctually be a highly modified ludwig with newer parts on it.
