    Why do we buy vintage drums vs modern drums?

    pretty sure the real reason people buy vintage drums is so that they can have 80 kits sitting on shelves its absurd the number of collectors there are; reminds me of sports cards, or the diamond industry artificial "scarcity"... it seems to be working

    Huge drum haul. Lots of rust.. octobans, pearl FG, lots of cymbals..

    get yourself an ultrasonic cleaner, and you could save almost everything, with minimal effort put water in the cleaner, than parts in a jar or small tub with the evaporust put THAT jar in the water, and go... reduces the "overnight" aspect into "8 minutes"... plus it'll easily handle bolts...

    Shell holes and JB Kwikwood?

    O/T...Bike inner Tubes
