One pic says it all. Yeah, some might question the purchase, but we want what we want.

Yeah, I’ve wanted a late ‘70’s BB since probably ‘85. Did I overpay? Maybe. But did I get a drum I’ve wanted for 30+ years... ABSOLUTELY!!

Thank you Scott for making this drum available!!

Very nice!

A B/O badge BB has been on my want list for almost as long.
Congrats on fulfilling your dream.

Where Black is the color, where None is the number
Here’s the easiest way to justify “overpaying”

1. Figure out how long it would take for a “cheap” one to pop up.
2. Calculate what you “save” each day you don’t have what you want.
3. Realize it’s worth 28 cents or whatever a day to just do what you wanted to anyway.

That’s a lovely drum!

So, 8 hours or so into this snare drum and I feel like I got exactly what I paid for... it does everything at an “A” level but it’s the ease of getting different “A” level sounds that’s staggering. I can go from wide open to heavily muffled in seconds and this drum will go with me 100%.

Will it do a solid maple shell as well as a Radio King or N&C SS Maple? Nope. But it gets pretty damn close. Will it do a ‘65 400? Nope. But it’ll get pretty damn close to that, too! I’m guessing the reason this is a studio staple drum is because it sounds great no matter where you have it.

Again, we’re happy!

Scott was above board and an absolute pleasure to deal with. His gear came BETTER than described. Two thumbs up with zero hesitation.
