...plus a bunch of mismatched Slingerlands that collectively make a pleasing noise.

I owned and sold a beautiful '49 Leedy kit to a friend of mine when I needed a couple of grand for my house purchase. 13/16/22 w/matching '50 Ludwig & Ludwig snare.

I then felt better after I purchased this '53 Leedy & Ludwig beauty. 12/16/22 w/matching Broadway snare.

Leedy drums are some of the best (and most beautiful) drums that were ever made!

The blue sparkle kit is one of the coolest I've seen on this site! Mojo for days!

Stunning kit, an improvement IMHO, I like a 12" tom with those sizes...

Sweet!

I've only had one Leedy, really liked it and regret not keeping it. Another opportunity might convince me to own one again. I think the lugs are some of the nicest out there and the COB are really nice too.
