Re: 60's Olympics

Even with the added mount, it looks in great condition. $600 is a good price but no higher.

Re: 1963 Premier 54 outfit Aquamarine sparkle Drum show in Chi Town, To go or not to

15K? $15,000? No way. You're deluding yourself thinking you will get that kind of money. "A local drum pro claimed that this kit could bring 15K", he's off his medication. $800 tops, with all the...

Thumbs up Re: A prototype drum kit out of some vintage shells

VERY well done finish! Getting a good aged crackle finish is not easy. The copper looks great with it.

PS: You beat me to it on the finish. ;)

The only time I've been mic'd is at an open air concert for 14,000 people. It's also the only time we used a sound man.
I've never been mic'd at a club of any size, nor did we have a sound man....

Re: The value of a re-wrapped kit depends on...

You can get those same issues on new factory kits as well, which is why they wrapped them instead of stain/lacquer.

Vintage kit restored vs Vintage kit improved.

I'll take one that's improved...

Re: Mystery Vintage Trap Drumset Part???

6" footprint? Is it even a drum part? Looks like the base of a counter display stand.

Re: premiere project one snare

Post a pic of the lug, front and back, measure the lug, tip to tip and measure from the tip to the mounting hole(s). Do the lugs have a black plastic backer? I'll see what I have in the pile.

Re: Please could you help me date this vintage premier kit?

The hardware. It's the Art Deco II series. The base of the tom mount is no longer round, floor tom legs are bent instead of straight. BD tension rods and claws are the new style. It wouldn't surprise...

Re: Did Gretsch do this?

No mystery, every drum company does it or ends up doing the same, it's cost effective to use bad or mismatched grains/shell for wrapped kits. It's for the same reason Gretsch, Ludwig and a few others...
