    ANOTHER Rogers Bop Find? Incredible!

    Had to pick this up yesterday, here in the DC area. One pic in the ad, shown, besides some paper tag shots. No sizes, nothing, except " I've got several other kits for sale". Now that is my kind of hint. I really was hoping it was a 20 so I would be able to resist the temptation to buy, as I...

    TWO '67 Ludwig Super Classic 3 ply kits. Champagne and Silver Sparkle

    Both of these kits are completely original and in excellent condition. No mods. All six drums sport April 1967 stamps. The champagne kit is a tad bit cleaner on the inside. I would say this is a zero fade kit. When I acquired this kit, it was in fibre cases. The Joe Morello silver sparkle kit...

    Rogers 24 Black wrap 9/72

    Players drum in decent shape, in round, with great edges. Original wrap is solid, just normal scratches. Completely cleaned. The batter hoop needed some strengthening, but all is well now after a clamp job. 95% of the inlay is present. One swivo and the knobby are unoriginal, the...

    SOLD - Price drop - Late 70's Tama Fibrestars - $750

    Excellent condition, completely cleaned. 22 16 13 12. Mostly original heads. As you may know, Fibrestar wrap is very thin and prone to cracks. The 13" wrap was cracked near the tone control; I glued it back down and it is secure. The 12 had a superficial wrap crack; also secured. These toms...

    Slingerland Red Tiger Stage Band

    I posted a quick pic of these back when I picked them up. Finally got them cleaned up, although they were already in pretty good shape. 14x20, 14x14, 9x13, 8x12, with matching 6 lug snare. All serials close, around 1967/68. Chocolate milk interiors. The toms came sans reso hardware; I replaced...

    WFL BeBop/Compacto Complete Kit Find

    So you may have seen this kit on fee-bay when it was listed back in May. I was able to negotiate via back-channel, and picked it up last week from the Quad Cities area when I was traveling in the Midwest visiting family. The gentleman was the second owner, and had not touched them since he went...

    SOLD - 70s Slingerland 9x13 3 ply

    Shell and edges are in excellent condition, wrap is original, if a little dirty. I have not cleaned this up at all. 330xxx serial. This drum was a match to the 12 16 22 I documented here a couple of months ago that had severe sticker fade disease; this drum was not affected, so I did not apply...

    SOLD - 1965 Slingerland 20 16 13 14x5

    This kit is in as-found condition, although still pretty clean actually. The 20 and 13 are dated 1965; the 20 and snare have close b&g Niles badges. No badge on the 13, which is as expected. All clear Maple interiors. The 16 was added later, a b&s Niles badge around 1970, chocolate milk. The...

    1958 Slingerland Knotty Pine 12x22, 5x14

    Picked these up last week, mostly to satisfy my curiosity. This pair is dated March 1958, with beautiful mahogany interiors. The 'wrap' has been described as contact paper, and I think that is being generous. Extremely thin. Looks like black lacquer underneath. Previous owner slapped some brown...

    SOLD - 1980/81 Tama Superstar SuperMahogany 13/14/16/22

    Standard depth kit, all 121xxx or 120xxx serials. All birch shells, lacquer finish, no re-rings. This is the very sweetest spot of Tama drumcraft, and, unfortunately, the drums that put Slingerland, Rogers, and almost Ludwig, out of business. Very good to excellent condition. The 10" tom shows...

    The last Slingerland 3-ply re-ring kit ...

    .... is PROBABLY NOT this kit, but it got me wondering. I ran across this at a local shop. Classic 3ply, rerings, but with serial numbers in the 397xxx's. That seems pretty late to me. I know about the badge bucket dump factory practice, so that serials are only approximately accurate in...

    ** SOLD ** Yamaha Oak Customs $1200 pl/sh

    Very very nice condition, just a minor scratch or two. 22x17, 10x7, 12x8, 14x12. These oak plys project with clarity and more aggression than similar maple shells. Wish I could keep them, but I've got to make room for more Rogers.
