    And then I sent it to Mike Curotto...

    Very cool. I saw that drum and wondered if it was an all-gold. It was hard to tell from the pics. Mike does a great job on restorations and one of the few I would entrust to these rare gems. Great find and restoration!

    At what year does "vintage" end?

    “Now that has all changed. Nobody is really into the 1920's stuff”... are you kidding? I sold several 1920s Black Beauties in 2019 and they went very quickly for good prices...

    Need an appraisal on a vintage snare

    I also think it was buffed to brass but started originally with a different finish (as Mike suggested). If it was engraved (a Black Beauty or Inspiration), it might still have some significant value. To me, the removal of the original finish greatly diminishes the value. If you get anything...

    Wanted: Vintage Drum Catalogs

    I've been looking to complete my original Ludwig, Leedy, Slingerland and Wurlitzer catalogs, pre-1960. If you have any for sale/trade or know someone, I am happy to pay a premium and/or finder's fee. I will also buy in bulk to get the ones I want. These are great reference material for my...

    Verifying Super Ludwig cob

    The badge, badge placement, tone control look proper for COB pre-serial. Does the inner lip of the "snare bed" have a flange? You mentioned it does have a seam and crimped beds.
