    OT - Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island - Dawn Wells has passed

    Ludwig 1964 green sparkle bass drum question

    Welcome to the forum. Lots of good info here. I believe green sparkle from that era tends to fade yellowish - avoid direct sunlight. Is there a date stamp on the inside of the shell? Ok to ask how much you paid? Coy
