    I combined all of that stuff, because that's what I found, and had money for. My friend sold me those huge concert toms. They were actually black, but I didn't care that they didn't match. Down the road, I found a pair of 8 and 10" concert toms, bought some midnight blue wrap from Tama, had the 14 and 15" concert toms converted to closed toms, and wrapped them all in midnight blue. I can't find any mics of the kit after all of those mods, but it was really looking closer to my "dream" kit after all of those changes, and a 2nd kick drum!

    This was me with hair...

    Iím not usually big on large kits with only one kick, but that works for me.

    Down the road, when I added the 2nd kick, it really completed the kit for me. I know two kicks is not practical most of the time, but I just enjoy playing double-bass kits, more than using a double pedal.

    I've never seen Frank play a double bass kit.

    Almost every kit Frank has toured with over the past 15-20 years have been double bass kits.

    True.

    Much more uncommon to see Frank Beard actually sporting a beard, than to see him playing a double bass setup.

    Was there such a thing as a double pedal back then? I thought they didn’t come out until the 90’s.

    I had a DW double pedal, back in 1987. It was actually a slave unit that was somewhat universal, and you could add it to almost any other standard pedal. It wasn't great... but it worked.
