    Thx 3PK, I still can’t believe I found this kit 7 miles from my house on Craigslist. The gentleman’s Grandfather owned the drums and had passed away and wanted his grandson to have them. He used them for a few years but then started a family and had no time to use them. They were dirty and a few nicks but they really are showroom condition.
    I have owned s number of 2nd &3 generation free floater snares but the1st gen blows them away!
    !!
    I ordered a pair of Masters bass spurs and the extended snare wires which came yesterday and a set of 16 bass tension rods will be here by the weekend. I’m using this kit for a gig Friday and I hope the seller and his wife will attend.

    I owned a 92 MLX in sheer blue but sold it about 7 years ago to a collector he had for sale recently but the timing wasn’t right to buy it back. One door closes and another opens! I’m so grateful to have a wife that supports my passion to play and own such incredible drums.

    Fantastic story mate and great to know it's gone to a new home where it will be loved and cared for again, and get some use.
    It's also handy, given the history of what happens with the long lugs as they age, that it has coffin lugs IMHO.
    Enjoy it.

    I remember your sheer blue kit well!
