    Restore, rewrap, ratrod, it's your call. Selling these as-found.

    The good: Solid shells. Hardware will clean up nicely. Bass drum batter side bearing edge is factory. Reso side is good with only mild dings/scrapes. Tom batter bearing edge is factory.

    The bad:
    BD: Missing 2 original claws and 4 T-rods. Tom mount was either replaced or moved a bit as can be seen by old washer impressions. 2 swivel nuts are split. Don't even ask me what the heck is going on with that boiler room plastic knob!

    Missing bottom tom hoop and rods. Tom reso side is beat up from running around naked. Tom mount screw/washers not original.

    The ugly: This Cortex has taken a beating. Worn thru to the mahogany in one spot on the tom. Generally scrapey and scratchey all over. Hoops are lumpy and indented from claws cuz, well, you know.

    Anyhoo, I'd like to see $300 plus shipping but always open to offers. Happy to remove all hardware for shipping. Arlo the cat is not included. Sideways pics again...dammit.

    Deal of the Day.
    Wish I could justify owning more drums.

    Why justify when you can rationalize? :)

    I am looking for a 14" Slingy light blue pearl chocolate milk floor tom. Player grade. Would be down for partial trade as well.
