    nice find! cool that you got a fatty snare & an 18 floor tom.
    Buying 10" undrilled or few holes drum shell- at least 10x5". PM me!

    Usually on the resale market it's 10x10, 10x12. There's was a jazz-sized 8x12, but you rarely see an 8x10 with long lugs.

    I actually just bought a long-lugged BLX, and mine happened to come with a 10x8. Which is kind of funny, because I would rather have had a 10x10

    That's a great deal for those drums and that snare! You could sell the snare and make money back easy.

    Thanks Healthie...I lost out on a nice Rogers snare a few weeks back so this definately filled the void.

    Get it!

    That snare would be a great addition to my collection! I'd snap that kit up just for the snare...

    My BLX (originally purchased by me in 1988) also came with the 10x8 tom - the 10x10 was the standard later. My MLX has the 10x10 tom... I like the 10x8 better because it looks better beside the 12x10 - soundwise they are both good...
