This set was made with W&A 'orphan' drums. ('Orphan' means each from came from a different drum set). Drums have been completely gone through. .

Bearing edges checked

All extra holes were plugged (with wood, not fillers)

Shell interiors painted black (just like the old days of W&A drums built by George Bernard (1905-1950s) and Jacob Tharpe (mid-late 1970s)

Wrapped in Champagne Sparkle and decorated with new W&A badges.

(snare stand for tom not included)

Historical Info: I was able to confirm... the bass drum on this kit came from the very last drum set made by W&A. It was originally built by Jacob Tharpe in 1979 for drummer Louie Santoro of the Worcester MA based band 'August'. (see last pic) It was a double bass drum set in white. I received both bass drums from the Louie's brother. (Unfortunately he didn't have the rest of the set). The tom and floor tom came from other W&A sets from the 1970s. It appears Jacob Tharpe was the original builder as well.
