Outstanding drums in the tradition of the legendary jazz drummer.
The Buddy Rich Signature 5-Piece Shell Pack is designed after the legendary drummer's personal specifications. The 100% maple shell's ply distribution from one drum size to another is arranged to deliver the best tone, projection and resonance: 7-ply 24" x 14" bass drum, 6-ply 13" x 9" rack tom, two 7-ply 16" x 16" floor toms and matching 10-ply 5" x 14" snare drum.
The beaver tail lugs, rail consolette tom mount and shell-mounted ride and splash cymbal holders are vintage in design, but manufactured to meet the quality and durability demands of today's drummer.
The gorgeous high-density white marine pearl finish rounds out the authentic features of this amazing sounding drum kit. The Buddy Rich Signature Kit is an outstanding set of drums for the most demanding live or studio gigs... and quite the collector's piece!
Cymbals and free-standing cymbal stands not included.

I do not own this set, but i do own an ORIGINAL 1969 Slingerland Buddy Rich set. My dad bought this set in 1969 (including Ziljian Avedis 16 Crash, 16 Thin Crash, 14 High Hats, 8 Splash and 22 Ride)and he passed it down to me. It has been the best set ever!! i love the 2 floor toms. I tune mine high like John Bonhams drums. Although I do not own the matching snare (it was stolen in 1978 after one of my dads gigs) I do have a 1978 Radio King snare. The only thing we do to the set is play them and change the heads every once in a while. I record with them and my dad is still gigging with them with his big band group. The have NOT warped, dented or shown any signs of breaking expept where the ride cymbal braket is. it started to crack, but stopped so we put a little bit of Gorilla glue under the wrapping to put it back down.(but after 40 years,im sure alot of drums would do that!) i hope this review helped. i truly love these drums and may buy this set once my dad stops gigging just because the 69s are vintage. By the way, these drums on this site are some of Buddy's early drums. The mounted tom on his later drums has a ball and socket type thing, which is one reason i haven't bought another set all this time, i love it!, you can position it anywhere you want.
