Last but not least my W&A collection, most are from 30's and earlier. Love W&A's and its history.

Sweet cheesus.
Each one of those is beautiful.
That bird's eye bass drum... man oh man.
I just love those super old cast hoops as well. They always have that hand crafted look.

Does that blue kit have a story?

Old 4x15” Hawkes & Son ‘The Snapper’ it has the New Zealand
Distributors stamp on it as well.

Surprisingly, it takes modern heads.

I'm hoping you all have some pictures of some cool old drums. I love the really old stuff.
I'm thinking pre-1930's.
Bonus points for pictures of updated or retrofitted drums!

Let's see em!
