    Update - When I bought this set the owner had the original bass drum inlays replaced with Merlot Sparkle - evidently the original inlays had curled and discolored from what I was told. I was able to buy a damaged 13" RB Burgundy Tom from an excellent seller on Ebay - Ryan Hajj (not sure if he...

    Thanks so much Frank! I appreciate that! On the drums - I got to say that galaxy set & snare is stunning! So beautiful & so rich in color! I’m sure they sound great too but just the visuals are absolutely stunning! You always had the best stuff! That is funny about your being depressed...

    Thanks again! Not exactly healthy but better than I was this past year - these drums are helping me to pass the time while everyone is laying low. I have a non curable form of thyroid cancer that has spread into my lungs and bones and is starting to take a toll on my body. It's been a trying...

    That is awesome Jazztom! It is a small world - in more than one way! By the way your snare drum was pictured on page 84 of the Gretsch book by Chet Falzerano!

    Hi Mike & Tom & Stu I remember stopping over your place just before you were heading to some coffee shop to do some gigging! It is good to be back somewhat, although I had been lurking in the weeds so to speak all the time!

    Thanks you guys! This past year I really went downhill health wise and have been fighting several issues and at the same time we moved but I think things are improving! This is just another step in that direction- it is uplifting! And good to be back on the board sometimes! Thanks again!

    I haven't been active for a few years on the forum due to changes in life and health - I am at the stage of unwinding things and consolidating and simplifying my life, which included my "collection" - but as of now I am now locked up in the house with a new (to me) drum set and the time on my...

    Question - Identity & Value of new stamp? K Hi Hats?

    I have not posted for a few years but I have a question about some hi hats my friend just picked up. Any idea what these hi hats are worth? I have a friend who is a bass player who buys vintage music gear and he picked these up recently- I think these are 14 new stamp Ks. Don't have any info...
