Hate to see it go, but... Had this since 1975. 5x14. 10 lugs. All original except for heads, wires and 2 rim clips that were replaced with genuine old BB clips from Mike Curotto. Original case. I am the second owner of this drum as I bought it from the original owner. I have gigged this drum and recorded with it and it sounds phenomenal. I have not cleaned it for the pics. With a little love this drum will sparkle. over 90 years old. Some wear can be expected. Couldn't find many examples for sale, but the one I found as a completed sale on ebay was $4600. I am asking $3500. Drum will be professionally packed and insured for shipping. Buyer pays shipping. PM me for more info.

Very nice, I’ve got an 8 lug scroll pattern drum that I sometimes think about selling, but never commit. You’ve had that one for a long time so it really must be a very hard decision to make. GLWTS.

Here's one pretty much like yours for just a little more money...

Wow! Mine should sell in a heartbeat, even though it is a couple years newer. LOL

The prize winner! Best of luck. Bound to be a TON of mojo in this drum from all that giggin' you've done.

The groups name is "Little Bill and the Bluenotes." There are a few vids up on you tube and some old, old 45s, but nothing with the BB. I am trying to get in touch with a local music historian that has all our CDs and hopefully the ability to post the one I feel is most representative of the BB. I will post it even after the drum is sold so everyone can hear how great it is.
