I was just introduced to this name from a drummer across the pond who raved about them and wanted to see what information I could glean here. Very little information on the net but am intrigued. Thanks in advance.
Yes that is the only thing of substance that seems to come up. Looking for first hand experience ideally. Thanks.Have you looked into here: https://www.notsomoderndrummer.com/not-so-modern-drummer/2016/6/2/1960s-carlton-drums

Thanks I saw that one after searching on the name but have yet to find comments about the sound and other usage details from people who have played them.Here are some pictures of a Carlton Big Beat Kit....I haven't picked these up yet but they are 22" x 13" Bass Drum 16" x 18" Floor Tom 12" x 8" 14" x 10" and two super little bongos 6" x 5" and 8' X 5"...They are in need of a good clean up, I believe the Kick Drum and Bongos have original Calf...www.drumforum.org
I already have that snare and love it. I’ll be on the lookout for the 60s Carlton snare and have my UK source on the case but apparently all very rare.Such a cool wrap! Hope it sounds as good as it looks!
The Premier 2000 snare will not disappoint you!
