    Sonor cymbal stand - need ID & help

    What era is this Sonor cymbal stand? And does anyone, by any chance, have a boom to complete it? It's a weird size, nothing I tried fits. A pic of a complete one so that I know what it's supposed to look like? May sell if someone is interested. It's in great shape other than the missing boom.

    Drum set too big to be shipped internationally?

    I have shipped drums all over the world many times, but not recently. I currently have a set for sale on eBay and a potential foreign buyer who asked for a shipping quote. So I went to calculate the shipping on USPS and quickly discovered that a 22" x 22" x 20" box is too big to be shipped...

    Piccadilly Compacts: MIJ or USA?

    Found this pic on my old hard drive. Looks like a typical MIJ set, but says "Made In America". Research indicates that these were marketed by Remco out of Harrison NJ, c. 1966, and that's about it. Obviously, a stencil brand that probably only lasted a year or two during the mid-1960s boom. But...

    Rich Drums? Old marching bass drum to ID

    Here's a 28" marching bass drum I fixed up and sold back in 2008. At the time, I could find nothing about it. Just came across the pics again, tried Googling it and came up with nothing again.
