Tris Imboden’s Chicago, 50 Year Anniversary, DW/Paiste/Gibraltar “All Gold” Complete set. Authenticated. $39,995.00 This one of a kind DW drum set was custom built for Tris Imboden while he was a member of Chicago. Imboden was a member of the Chicago band for 28 years from 1990-2018. The set was made to commemorate the band’s 50 year anniversary and was played on the band’s 2017, 50 year anniversary tour.

The set was Imboden’s complete touring drum set and includes all of the drums, cymbals, rack and hardware seen in the photos (microphones not included). Also included with the set are a collection of 2017 tour items including a stage used pair of Tris’ drum sticks, All Access laminate, band’s tour itinerary book and an un-opened tour program still in it’s original plastic wrap.

The set was designed specially for Imboden by John Good at DW drums. The shells are DW custom Collectors Series Cherry/Mahogany shells finished in 18 coats of hand rubbed metallic gold lacquer. Each drum has 2 metallic “Chicago 50 Years” logos embedded into the gold lacquer finish. All of the lugs, rims and mounts are gold plated. The drums are visually stunning and give the appearance of being made of solid gold. The set was handled with extreme care and remains in excellent condition. The set includes the following.

DW custom Cherry/Mahogany 8×7, 10×8 and 12×9 mounted toms, 14×14 and 16×16 floor toms on legs, a 23×18 bass drum with “Chicago 50 Years” logo head and a matching 14×6 snare drum.
