Not sure, but I think Louie gifted that kit to Duffy Jackson who used it on the Sammy Davis, Jr. television show on ABC around 1975.

I was doing a jazz gig at the Travelers hotel in Miami, Fl. in the 70's and Duffy Sat in on some songs, playing my kit.
The guy hit so hard I thought he was going to break my kit.

Lionel is a vastly underrated, even unknown drummer. He even plays piano as credited in some big band work . . . and as a composer he's pretty great, too:

Vibes related, I'm really looking forward to getting this Bobby Hutcherson cd tomorrow a friend is burning me:
http://www.amazon.com/Oblique-Bobby-Hutcherson/dp/B000A2H7SG
This album, recorded in 1967, had to wait 13 years to be released. But when it was, it was hailed as one of the greatest albums in this great vibist's long career. The quartet tackles both attractive and challenging material contributed by Hancock and Chambers as well as the leader.

BOBBY HUTCHERSON: vibes
HERBIE HANCOCK: piano
ALBERT STINSON: bass
JOE CHAMBERS: drums
