This looks like an exceptionally fine condition kit and a really fair price!

Is the snare throw-off a micro sensitive, and if so, is it fully functional?

the set I'm familiar with had one owner who played it for decades. he played in a polka band that was active forever here in central texas. when he died, his son sold the set. it came with 2 a zildjian crashes, a set of 14 a hihats and a medium ride of the same vintage. I've been recording with the hihats for the last couple weeks, they're awesome.
