Here is a nice example of a Fibes SFT snare.
Chrome over fiberglass. Drum is correct, edges are fabulous and this thing sounds great from a whisper to a rifle crack.
Buddy was right about these.
Drum is way better than its age.
50 years or so.
Has typical light imperfections.....not a lot.
I have a set of Zildjian hihats that somewhere in the transition era or thinstamp.
Weights are 863g and 1029g
The stamps are heavier on the z and co.
but I just can't tell if they aren't just skewed thin stamps.

So, as I get deeper into building.....assembling and finishing drums I find myself wondering why I have not done this until now.

Went to see Chicago for the first time since Tris Imboden left the band.
Show opened with a local Chicago band called "Mistaken Identity".
Like fingernails on a chalk board.
So its basically an OLDER crowd and the opener comes out with a new song written by the guitarist called something like "...
PART3 So, 5 or six weeks ago I acquired a set of Pearl Mahogany Limited Edition drums.
The set had some weird white lines under the lacquer. You couldn't feel them but you could see them.
After asking and dealing with Pearl Nashville it was determined that this issue is known as "blushing". This...
I'll start this off by saying I have had a blast in Nashville! Drums everywhere.
I took a photo record of the trip and I was actually on a mission. I will explain later.
Part 1.....Craviotto factory tour
Part 2.....Forks drum closet
Parts 3 and 4.....Pearl Nashville facility, custom shop, lots...
1) I have a set of Radio King bongos.
These do function and are all there but they are rough. The shells are thin and the tops of the lugs are pressing into the shells. There is some wmp loss on the center block.
$125 shipped as is. Conus.
2) 12 x 14 tom tom. In respectable shape. Missing...
Here is a really nice little Pearl Session Studio Select drumset. Alternating plies of birch and mahogany.
Traditional sizes. 20", 12",14"ft and 16" ft.
Color is Barnwood.....and gorgeous. Sort of a brown fade.
$1395.00 $90 shipping conus.
All things considered.
1)the first shot is a gold sparkle Craviotto Diamond series drumset. These are not solid shell but Cravs entry into the multi ply shell kits.
The rest of the sets are pretty self explanatory.
Last kit; Craviotto solid shell kit that Steve had built for himself. It is truly a stunning kit.
Clean as a whistle and collector correct.
These drums sound like a million bucks.
24", 13", 14", 16"ft, 18"ft
Mostly original heads. No dissappointments here. Wrap looks just like Rogers KOA
Shipping conus $125
Gold teeth, livestock, things with motors, guitars, you name...
I recently bought some Pearl Masters Mahogany drums from a forumite.
I have zero issues with my transaction. It was smooth as silk.
When I got the set home I discovered that the glue used at the exterior joint has reacted with something and made a white stripe on 5 of the 6 drums in this set...
