nope, that was the buddy rich super classic. Ludwig kept it in the lineup and just dropped buddy's name.roundbadgedude said:interesting! had no idea, i thought it was just the WFL with the classic strainer morphed into the JF.
I think maybe you're personalizing this whole thing a bit.dexplosion said:I just think all these drums are being looked at at face value.
Some people actually care what they are beyond that, and it doesn't appear that you do.
there was another person there who picked up about 5 pieces.mlayton said:I see another seller on ebay this morning,selling more of barrett deems collection. was there more that you didn't get kevin?
So if I offered the guy selling the wmp kit 2k and he accepted, he'd be making a quick 1k. Hmmmm. Thanks.roundbadgedude said:there was another person there who picked up about 5 pieces.I see another seller on ebay this morning,selling more of barrett deems collection. was there more that you didn't get kevin?
i spoke with him and congratulated him on getting the pieces.
he had no idea what they were. he was 'an ebay / flea market guy'. he knew nothing about drums. knew nothing of Barrett. knew nothing of ludwig, etc. he picked up barrett's WMP kit for under a 5th of what he has it up for on ebay right now, as well as some leedy drums he listed for double what they are worth. definitely an uneducated seller, but knew there was value in some of the pieces there, as most would if they had a working brain in their heads.
now, for everyone with a bug up their ass about what I do, even though i am legitimate in this industry, why dont you msg him and bust his chops, as he doesnt care or know what he has, what its worth, etc.
Dudes having a pipe dream!JDA said:There's from another a cymbal collection up.
Thanks for that Mike. As I get older I am starting to forget some of the things I knew when I started collecting and I was under the assumption that Barret Deems only had the porta pak 5.5x13 as his model snare drum. Once again I stand corrected...mlayton said:also from the '57 wfl catalog..
