I’m guessing this was a double bass kit originally: 12 & 13 on a double Tom stand which would explain the lack of the mount on the bass drum.

Yo, guys.

Sounds right about the double bass drum history. It is the correct time period when the double bass drum kitds became more popular. Similar to my Rogers BDP double bass drum kit which I purchased new in 1968 and still use on the gigs (minus one bass drum which stays at home in the practice room). I'm wondering if it would be possible / how hard it would be to find a double tom stand to fit the drums ???
