This is an unusual set.
These black Gon Bops were made when Gon Bops was transitioning from the Voodoo hardware to the stronger international hardware. This is the only drum Ive seen with this hardware from Gon Bops, and looks like this was a design they ditched in favor of what eventually became the international hardware. In true Gon Bops fashion, every thing that can be put on a functional drum and sold, was.
Check out this hardware, and how the history of these drums is recorded in metal..
