OK, I assume that you have 10 mil resonant heads?
If so, I would set the two ply batters at around 80 and the resonant heads at around 76. Fine tune from there. If your kit still has the stock...

Re: Tom Setup with Tuning

Your tom sizes are fine. It isn't unusual to see a 10" high tom with a 16" floor tom.

Re: Just Bought a late 60's Luddy Kit

I got creative today and I came up with a new setup for the Lud's.
I figured a way to mount my mini timbales on the stand that holds the high toms and the crash and splash cymbals. I'm liking the...

A few years ago I began collecting vintage kits that I had decided that I wanted to own.

65 Slingerland...

Re: Blues Drum Kit

Re: Old timey drums from Sears

I believe that Star and Pearl made drums for Sears in the 60's. I don't think that Gretsch, Ludwig, Slingerland ever made drums for Sears. I don't remember seeing any when I was growing up.
