    Wow...has this been discussed before? Slingerland complete set in Abalone??

    Too bad you did not speak up, when I had it listed through Donn. He had it at 27,000 and someone offered 21 and we accepted and then they sort of never got back to us. So I sold it to Donn for around 17.

    Well it was in an auction, only 6 blocks from my house. I bid up to 1225.00 for the whole set of stuff they were selling, would have been 1500 with the sellers fee. but I decided I did not want to spend that much and have a project on top of it. The sale was for this.

    Oh I see what you mean, largest measurement was 24 1/4 and smallest measurement was 23 3/4. so I think the vertical had settled down a 1/4 and the horizontal spread a 1/4. probably because the reso head and been removed for a long time.

    Have a chance to pick up a 24" 70s pointy BO badge Black Cortex ludwig locally. I measured it and it is about a quater of an inch out of round at its worst spot. It will need new heads so wondering if that much will make getting heads on and tuning difficult? Need to know asap. Thanks.

    Thoughts on 24" Ride Cymbals

    Is this authentic WFL tom?

    I had this late 50s WFL and was also amazed how clean the rings inside looked. But the whole drum was in super mint condition. Even the canvas carry bag was mint.

    Chris Coleman tearing it up at Fork's Drum Closet

    his pedal speed at 7:55 is impressive, as is the last statement, that those drums were straight out of the box and had not been touched. Sounded really nice for a phone mic.

    EBAY/CL/STUPID DOTD and other sites DEAL ALERTS for modern drums!

    No I can't tell but the crash has a nice small bell and looks thin and the ride hammering pattern spacing does not look uniform enough to be a cheaper machine hammering like the zxt or zbt. The hats are B8s.

    Another set selling where user has no idea the worth. 300 for set and cymbals and hardware and the cymbals are worth that alone and set is nice satin finish showing wood grain mapex. Drum Set - musical instruments - by owner - sale (craigslist.org)

    Cool Finishes

    I know it should be burned out dead branches or something like that, but once I got the picture of darkened veins in my head that's all I see.
