    I had been playing just snare in school for a few years before I got the kit. I don't remember the size of any of the drums but they were probably the same. I got the FT before the Camber 2 Cymbal and then hats also with Camber 2 cymbals. That was a long time ago! You remember all of the details I probably never knew; ie sizes etc. The Kent Kit got me started.

Note the luxurious hardware! Played it night and day and got told to stop often and they finally sold it and sent me to military school.

    Too funny guys. I just saw this thread. And I was like "hey! That's what I started on" Here's a picture from early 1982 after I got this kit for Christmas 1981. No Hihat for the first six months. 20" kick drum, 12" tom, snare and a 12" crash/splash cymbal
