Back then the "kit" would have this snare drum and a 14x28" (0r 14x30) Black Lacquer bass drum with gold tube lugs, a set of temple blocks, a cowbell and a snow shoe sock cymbal.

BTW, this drum is for sale as is, or fully restored, contact me in PM if you're interested.

I got to see this snare in person. It was an honor to just be in the presence of something so significant to history of drums. Thanks Mike!
