6 kits; 2 Sling, 1 Ludwig, 1 Trixon. 1 unknown MIJ and 1 Gretsch/Ludwig mix.

Misc, bass drums, toms stands, cymbals etc.

And at this point I don't know how many snares, I've been on a buying spree for the last year or so. 75? 80?

Right now 5 Ludwig kits from the 60's and 70's, 1 Holiday kit in BDP, 1 Slingerland gold sparkle and a bunch of snares from the same era. My current fave is a red sparkle dynasonic. There are also quite a few MIJ orphans lying around that i am trying to match.

Three drum sets: 1 Ludwig, 1 WFL, 1 Slingerland, each set represents a decade.

What a fun way to start the day!

As many of you know, I recently moved from my childhood home of almost 65 years! My new home is larger and I'll be able to display many of my drums in, what will be, the "drum room"!

Just took pictures and have 5 complete vintage kits. One of the kits in cases is my custom painted Pearl from 2006, so that one doesn't count! Not shown is my 60's 3pc Crown kit, still out in the garage in boxes!

Just counted my snare drums...62 of them!! While some are newer, the vast majority are 60's and early 70's MIJ and US drums...with one Premier in the mix for good measure! Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I'll be able to display all of them!

3 sets: Trans badge Gold Sparkle Ludwig 13/16/20, Keystone badge Club Date in champagne sparkle and a Slingerland Radio King from 1955 or '56.

14 snares (one that came with the gold sparkle and one that came with the Slingerland, and then notably: 1920s Ludwig 5x15 NOB Theatre Model, 1959 COB Super Ludwig, Leedy Mardi Gras)

And then in the misc category: a 26'' blue sparkle virgin Ludwig bass drum from 1969, a 20x18'' Ludwig floor tom from the same year in black cortex, and a 22'' blue vistalite virgin bass.

I think that's it? I started collecting 2.5 years ago so I've been playing catch up.
