This thread was the brainchild of atomicdave and Sean Sullivan, and I thought it was a great idea!

Post here if you have an incomplete set - what drums you have, what drums you would like to find. Maybe as a community we can put some "families" together! Those who post here - please do us all a favor and update your post when you buy/sell/trade something. Otherwise we could end up getting messages long after our drums have found new homes.

EDTI: All my orphan drums are now in the wind...

I have a Slingerland Niles era tom. Only two problems: It needs a rewrap, and has no badge (though you can purchase authentic niles era badges, with original grommets, from Chicago Drum.)

Awesome idea for a thread. I'm currently looking for matches for these:

10" Yamaha Beech Custom tom in blueberry
10" and 14" Crush Limited Reserve Wenge toms

I'd be willing to sell or buy. Whichever gets them into a complete set.

Brilliant Thread!!!

So..on my list...nothing I'm letting go of just yet because I have issues ;-)

Drums I want...

Rogers in black….14" Floor Tom or 18" Floor Tom.
Rogers in black KICKS ….24", 20"or any other size...I already have a 22". In my experience the BEST 20" Kick ever is a Rogers!
Rogers - snares…. almost anything..what have you got?

Ludwig in Champagne Sparkle…14" Floor Tom or anything aside from a 16
Ludwig in Champagne Sparkle…I have both 22 & 24..so anything else..20, 18, 26, 42 ;-)
Ludwig in Champagne Sparkle…any snare in any size… I have none. All my Ludwig snares are metal.

Sonor Tear Drop in Blue Marble… well I've got 20,13,16…so any other size is interesting.

Trixon Red Sparkle…I have a Telstar kit, but would love to add to it.. What do you have?

Noble & Cooley Star Series Blue Gloss… I need a 13" tom & a 22" kick or larger.


Oh the list will only grow ;-)

I have a 14x18 C&C Player Date II floor tom in ebony stain.

Sold to a forum member.

Now I'm looking for a 10" or 12" Ludwig Thermogloss concert tom. B/O badge.
I just scored 13 and 16 shells and want to round out a little nesting portable kit.

Well, that escalated quickly!!

Those who post here - please do us all a favor and update your post when you buy/sell/trade something. Otherwise we could end up getting messages long after our drums have gone away.

Would like to find HSS Slingerland Emerald Green Artist Custom toms in 8", 16", 18" and bass drum in 18", 20" or 24".

I'd like to find a maple 16x16 Pork Pie floor tom

I have Walnut Drop G SSB Gretsch drums for sale or trade: 16x16 floor and 14x22 bass.

I have an early black diamond Pork Pie 4x14 snare drum that I don't need.

I have a RB Gretsch COB 5.5x14 snare drum that I don't need.

I have WFL sanded Club Date shells in 14x22 (10 lug) and 9x13 with lugs and spurs.

Interested in a 16x16 DW Buddy Rich vintage marine floor tom that was an optional add-on to the the 2005 commemorative 24,16,13, set. Rare, as under 50 whole sets were ever made, with almost certainly far fewer extra 16x16's. Might not be able to afford one even if found, but...
