A 1945/46 Leedy 3-piece drum set, professionally refinished in a dark reddish lacquer by a pro painter friend. Nickel hardware on everything. 9×13: No extra holes, all original parts including its ratchet arm mount. 16×16: No extra holes. All original parts including the legs. Neither tom ever had mufflers. 14×24: Four small extra holes where Ludwig gull wing spur brackets had been on the bottom. These were plugged before the refinish and look very good. All original except the hoops, which are thin 7-ply of unknown origin. Comes with a matched pair of nickel hoop clamp spurs. Front head is a vintage calfskin with a port hole. All drums are maple outer ply, which probably means they were a Duco finish originally. They all have some nicks and scratches here and there, nothing too major. All are in round. Bearing edges are likely recut, but with a vintage-style contour that looks just like my’49 Leedy kit, so it’s hard to be sure. They’re flawless on all three drums. All the nickel is in great shape too with very minor wear. All threads are good and all parts move smoothly. Even the tom arm holds solidly. These drums are best described as super warm and round sounding. The kick has plenty of punch and body, the toms are somewhat on the quiet side and very easy to dial in. Would make a great studio drum set. The item “LEEDY 40s Vtg 3-Piece DRUM SET Kit 9 by 13 16 by 16 14 by 24 Nickel Hdwr” is in sale since Wednesday, May 20, 2020.
