Default Capri Pear Oddities

Looking for Capri Pearl stuff, but odd sizes, stuff you don't see often. What's out there?

Can you be a bit more specific? I'm guessing that you mean shell sizes? As to Capri Pearl, I don't know if any companies other than Slingerland used this finish. Shell sizes during the years that Capri Pearl was available were pretty standard. You might see the occasional 12x20 bass drum or 12x15 floor tom. Maybe an 8x14 snare drum? Other than that, I'm not sure what you're hoping to find!

Capri was used by a few. Slingerland and Leedy obviously, Kent, and Carlton also possibly others. I've seen at least 3 Slingerland cocktail drums, but one was pretty beat up. So as I requested, anything out of the normal sizes.
