    Looking for Camco Oaklawn "Sky Blue" 14"x22" bass drum

    I am not certain of exactly what Camco called the Sky Blue wrap. I am looking for a 14" x 22" Oaklawn bass drum. I do want original wrap. A rail would be nice. Would likely consider a 14" x 20" too. thanks. Round lugs wanted. Not Tuxedo style.

    I just heard this. His biography which I read quite a while ago, was very interesting. Sounds like death due to covid.

    Looking for 15" rim / hoop for this drum. Similar to the one on batter side.

    I am looking for a snare side single flange hoop to help complete this Ludwig brass snare. I need it to have the flares for the snare string to go through. The drum is a 15". I do have the clips and tension rods. I have no interest in selling the drum. Thanks for any help.

    Nick Knox from the Cramps R.I.P.

    I got home and read that he had died at age 60. I saw the Cramps two times in the mid 90's, but both times were after he was gone. Reading the obituary in the Cleveland area paper, he may have been 65. Some put him at 60 and that obit from where he lived , said 65.
