Latest CL find....another drum project
I checked out an ad for "drums and drum parts" on CL yesterday. I drove for an hour, but it was worth it. The guy had over a dozen drum kits, timpani, roto-toms, xylophones and a garage FULL of marching snares and bass drums. He had some cool old vintage kits as well; an old Rogers 4pc, several old Slingerland Radio King kits with 28" bass, old Leedy kits and a couple MIJ stainless steel kits. He knew what everything was worth, but I did manage to leave with something;
The gold sparkle shells are 14x22, 16x16 and 9x13. The blue concert tom shell is 10x14. All are Ludwig early 70s 3ply wrapped (maple/poplar/mahogany) with rings. The 9x13 has a pretty bad bearing edge on one side, but there are no extra holes drilled in any of the shells. I paid $140 for all of them. Not a great deal, but not bad.

Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!
"I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham
