    Camco LA Stradivarius 20/8/10/12/13/14/15

    Here’s a rare set. A Stradivarius 14x20 bass drum with 5.5x8, 6.5x10, 8x12, 9x13, 10x14, 12x15 toms in Pristine Condition. The 8 and 10 toms have the factory bottom bearing edges so heads could be added by switching to center lugs. I always thought this would be a great set for a recording studio.

Early 60's Ludwig 3 x 13 snare I recovered in walnut because the original finish was shot. 10 and...
