I'm pretty sure he recorded all the BST stuff with a Rogers Londoner kit. 20, 12, 13, 16. Dynasonic snare too from what I remember. I think In a wine red ripple finish. Also seem to remember Mark Knopfler buying them.
It's my understanding there weren't very many sets in this finish with beavertails. If somebody along the line switched out the original lugs for beavertails the shell would have to be drilled out. That would not be good for resale. That along with finding original tall boy reso hoops, would it...
Who knows what is really going on, it sure isnt me! I would love to go see them, talk to the owner and try to find out everything I could about them. Who was the original owner? Was he a professional? Why did he pick that particular color?
yes I'm bummed I didn't get them, but did i really need...
I just got a text from him. He said they were tentatively sold. If anything falls through he'll let me know. Oddly anyone going to look at this set will have a pocketful of cash. Tentatively sold. Odd.
I let the seller know I was free all day and could see it when it was most convenient for him, he never got back to me so I figured he must have been swamped with calls. I know he had people scheduled to look at 6:00.
I was in touch with the seller and he said 2 people were coming to look at it at 6. I told him I had all day off and I could come look at it any time. Haven't heard back yet. If he comes back and says i can see it at 6, I think I'm out. I don't want to get stuck in a bidding war.
