These drums were made in the Kustom Chanute, KS factory (’71-’73) from 6-ply Jasper shells with re-rings and they sound incredible! Easily tuned with a dry punch and minimal overtones–it’s no wonder that they’re held in such high regard. As for this finish… The word “rare” gets thrown around a lot, but this Purple Moire is truly hard to find. And, when you do find one of these old satin flame kits, they are often riddled with spider web cracks and splits in the finish. Despite the many small surface scratches, this finish on this kit is in surprising good condition. There are no breaks in the Moire, the seams are tight and the overall aesthetic is fabulous. Sizes (depth x diameter). 8 x 12 mounted tom. 9 x 13 mounted tom. 16 x 16 floor tom. 14 x 20 kick drum. 5 x 14 snare. This kit has absolutely no extra holes or modifications, but we do believe in complete disclosure, so please allow me to extremely thorough over the details below. Original wrap and inlays. Original bass drum hoops. Paint has not been retouched. Original COB lug casings. Original tone controls on snare and toms. Original triangle tom mount and tom arms. Original Floor tom legs and brackets. Original spurs and brackets. Both tom-mounted brackets had the wing nut sheered off. These were drilled and removed. One was replaced with a period correct Camco piece, the other with a very similar replacement. One of the rubber floor tom feet is a replacement. One tension rod (located on the floor tom bottom) is a replacement. Five tension rod washers were missing and a couple were under-sized (same thickness, smaller diameter). One of the long screws inside the strainer is a replacement. The external casing of the snare strainer is era appropriate, but is also a replacement (the missing screw broke off inside the original part). A couple other disclosures. The screws in the bass drum have a slightly smaller head on them. These look to be the same size as other Chanute kits, so my assumption is that the other drums were assembled with some of the leftover Oaklawn fasteners. One of these screws was also used to attach a floor tom leg bracket. The white interior paint looks like it was touched up in the factory after assembly (there are a few random screws with brush strokes, I made a point not to clean these off).
