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...
Brilliant idea!

Hiya, I got a Mapex M-Birch kit (blue fade color) with what I feel is a big gap between the 12" rack tom and 16" floor tom. If anyone has a 14" floor tom they don't need, let me know! Color example below...

Also... I have a 12" PDP CX rack tom (red sparkle wrap) that was an orphan drum. I'm thinking about pairing it someday with a modified 22"x14" PDP MX bass drum chilling in the garage, but if anyone is in need of this 12" tom, let me know, or if you have an orphan CX or MX floor tom.

I have a '60s Grestch Sunset (Salmon) Satin Flame set with a 20" BD and 12" rack tom but need the floor tom. I know it's a long shot, but if anyone has one (or even a set of rack and floor), I'll take it a "rock n roll" configuration on my own. Thanks!

Looking for a 10" Gretsch Renown tom. Any finish will work, but im looking for one of the older ones with diecast hoops, and will need to be shipped to Canada.
Thanks!

Looking for a Rogers Black Diamond Pearl 8x12” serial number range 35xxx-37xxx. Either Bread & Butter or Beavertail lugs. To match this smorgasbord lug kit I recently acquired from the original owner. Perhaps these deserve their own thread to discuss…

I’m on the lookout for any 18 inch Tama bass drums, preferably in blue. Looking to turn my 7 piece kit Superstar kit into a cheap jazz and club kit.

I'd love to find an 8x12" Sonor Phonic Metallic Blue tom. Came "this close" to one once, but alas....long painful story.
