This is not for sale. This is an article from Not So Modern Drummer.
Greetings Vintage Drum Fans!
So here is one I hope you all can dig and my latest addition to the collection:
An immaculate 1952 WFL Porto-Pak Outfit No. 986P in Sparkling Red Pearl with era correct additional floor tom ordered with set. This was an estate sale treasure find!
This set was an incredible find, of all places, on eBay. I contacted the seller almost immediately after it was listed to find out more and to get more photos and information about the set. Once I confirmed and went over the photos that this was indeed an estate sale time capsule find that sat for DECADES and EVERYTHING was included, I needed to figure out how to get this treasure to San Diego safely as the seller only offered local pick up in Spokane WA. Quite a long drive from San Diego. I even priced out airfare and car rental. It was ugly but this kit is the stuff of collector’s dreams. So I went to the Drum Forum to ask if anyone lived near there and would be willing to ship for me?
