Default Relatively Large Ludwig Orphan Trade Thread (plus some Gretsch)

So, here's the score. I have a heaping helping of shells I've bought for a rewrap project. Some of them are wrap-free, some have wrap that's loose and would be equally easy to reglue OR to remove, and some would require dewrapping good drums that haven't committed any sins beyond ending up cheap on eBay. This is mostly the last category.

I'm throwing these out there in the hopes that somebody looking for the exact drums I have has a bare or pretty-roached finish shell they're thinking of rewrapping anyway. I need to be pretty close to like-for-like and size-for-size here. I'd prefer to not wreck good drums, but I just can't trade a 1970 clear interior 26" shell for an 80's 6-ply 16" deep w/Modular hardware. I could sell these and try and buy replacements, but maybe we can help each other out and skip a couple steps.

For pricing sale offers, but I'd just be looking to go buy the same sized replacements on eBay.

I'm okay with ending up with enough of one color (i.e. a bunch of white cortex, black, or silver sparkle) to start from there, but that seems like threading the needle of unlikely luck. Never get what you want if you never ask, though, I guess. Somebody might desperately need something.

Can sell/trade as complete drums (where mentioned) or just a shell/badge.

Have:

TOMS
8"x8" and 10"x8" Monroe Keystone, mahogany stain, small lugs, regular mount, complete drums
12"x8" B/O ginger-aled silver, 3-ply clear interior, complete drum
12"x8" B/O white cortex, 3-ply, granitone, complete drum, goes with...
13"x9" B/O white cortex, 3-ply, granitone, complete drum
13"x9" B/O white cortex, 3-ply, clear interior, complete drum
14"x12" Monroe Keystone, white lacquer, 6-ply clear, Modular hole plugged and legs added, 8 lugs, complete drum
14"x14" B/O Red Sparkle, 3-ply, clear interior, extra leg/accessory mount added at top, complete drum
14"x10" B/O Blue Oyster, 3-ply, clear interior, sequential serials #'s with...
15"x12" B/O Blue Oyster, 3-ply, clear interior, both complete drums
18"x16" B/O white cortex, 3-ply, granitone, complete drum

Basses
20" B/O Silver Sparkle, 3-ply, clear interior, complete rail mount drum, quite nice
20" Keystone Silver Sparkle Club Date, 3-ply, white interior, complete except hoops
20" Keystone ginger-aled Silver Sparkle, 3-ply, clear interior, center mount, cymbal mount added, no h/w
22" B/O BDP, 3-ply, clear interior with B/O paper tag, rail was moved around a bit, but could be plugged and hard to see on the dark wrap, which is otherwise pretty nice, has hoops w/inlay, no h/w
22" 80's Chicago Keystone, 6-ply, black wrap (not cortex), center (not Modular) mount, 14" depth and not a quadruped, complete or bare
24" B/O Black Cortex, Granitone, center mount, no h/w or badge, grubby but workable
24" B/O White Cortex, 6-ply, center mount, complete drum
26" B/O Black Cortex, 3-ply, ordered w/4 legs and no mount, Rogers mount drilled by dealer, complete drum
28" B/O Silver Sparkle, 3-ply, virgin kit drum and not converted marcher, wrap needs seams glued, complete drum

Gretsch
8"x5.5" DropG Yellow Cortex, offset lugs, no mount ever drilled, complete drum
10"x6" SSB maple lacquer, offset lugs, Set-O-Matic drilled but covered by traditional diamond plate, no h/w, very clean finish
13"x9" RB Aqua satin flame, no issues, no h/w, above-average condition for this wrap
14"x10" SSB maple lacquer, offset lugs, Set-O-Matic drilled, no h/w, very clean finish
15"x15" Square Badge, white lacquer, real floor tom not converted, Techware leg mounts, complete drum
22"x14" RB BDP, no extra holes, no h/w

I'm sure I'm forgetting some things, and will edit to add later.

Them 14" and 15" Blue Oyster toms are calling out to me. I don't have shells to trade but I could be tempted to part with money if the price was right-ish.
Do you have pictures?

I can get you some in the next few days. They're really pretty nice. Emailing me is better, since I'm just not as active on here as DFO and Cymbalholic - mobile version on iPhone is... not optimal.
