Default Joyous Lake drums

I hope this isn't a repeat. I just saw these on craigslist Seattle.

6 piece African Padauk solid stave set that is really beautiful. Bennett's Drum Studio has them.

There's 14 pictures on the craigslist page.

I can't afford to buy them but I can afford to go look.

I remember Scott and some of his snare drums when he worked at American Music. These drums are the real deal -made by a guy who obviously couldn't make it as a drum "business" because what he made was closer to sculpture. I wanted one of his drums a lot, but they were just too expensive for my budget and I would have had to handle the drum with museum gloves on all the time! If you ever saw this stuff IRL, then you wouldn't ever want to really hit them. You'd just lightly tap on them and then put them back into the sanitized storage chamber! LOL -jk....but not.

Great to see these! It takes me back. I hope Scott is doing well.
