    Price Check on Gretsch 125th Anniversary Set.

    That’s it, I just picked it up and my Jazzette went to a great player who’ll make them sing. Thanks everyone for the input. I was going to bring them to the Chicago Show but I’m very attracted to shiny gold things so they may end up in my music room (Original heads stored).

    Price Check on Gretsch 125th Anniversary Set.

    I’m Jazzette covered with this Pre-serial Baby Ringo so the mahogany one is an extra.

    Price Check on Gretsch 125th Anniversary Set.

    I have an offer to trade my Mahogany Jazzette set with excellent chrome, though it does have scratches and a switched 60's front hoop, for a 2008 Cadillac Green/Gold Hardware 20,12 14,4x14 that is new in the boxes (Never played). I would like to know the value of the Gretsch set. Thank you.

    1951 Leedy and Ludwig Broadway

    Nice drums. I always thought Leedy & Ludwig were some of the best value in vintage drums. Beautiful shells with excellent bearing edges at reasonable prices.

    Oops, I just corrected it. Thanks

    I just got this late 60’s 20/12/14/5x14 together to bring to the Chicago Show. The Red Thunder wrap is stunning!

    Camco LA Stradivarius 20/8/10/12/13/14/15

    Thanks everyone. I’ve had this set for many years but never played them because I usually play 4 piece sets with the small tom, ride/crash cymbal, and cowbell mounted on the bass drum, just like the 60’s catalogs (I’m also my own drumtech). I have that covered with another LA set so I really...

    Camco LA Stradivarius 20/8/10/12/13/14/15

    Thanks. That would be my guess though I didn't get any stands with it.

    Camco LA Stradivarius 20/8/10/12/13/14/15

    Yep, the smaller tom is 5.5" instead of 6.5". My old girlfriends used to point this out, too.

    Camco LA Stradivarius 20/8/10/12/13/14/15

    Here’s a rare set. A Stradivarius 14x20 bass drum with 5.5x8, 6.5x10, 8x12, 9x13, 10x14, 12x15 toms in Pristine Condition. The 8 and 10 toms have the factory bottom bearing edges so heads could be added by switching to center lugs. I always thought this would be a great set for a recording studio.

    Transition Badge family portrait

    Nice Super-Ludwig family, Bijan. I play a Transition 5x14 Super-Ludwig (Pre Supra-Phonic) a lot.

    Ludwig “Butterscotch Pearl” story

    Nice job on the article, Bob. It will be interesting to see if more sightings or drums surface, like the above 10x14's drums.

    LA Camco 14x14 - 40% or 60% Off!

    The finish is a little redder than it appears though it is a darker version of Stradivarious similar to the 10x14 in the photo. (Stradi-VARY-us) Connecting it together will require a reinforcing ring and I believe I have a donor ring from a trashed parade drum. The following options have...
