Default Re: My 60's Star Kit !!

Hello Albertsdrumming,

The Lido Supreme double bass kit in fantasia pearl
was listed on the Portland Oregon Craig's list as late as October 4th
at that time the asking price was 500.00

which in of itself was reasonable for them

But shipping of a double bass kit from one coast to the other
would have been pricey

Not to mention that no shipping was being offered by the seller
The link for the listing can still be found but the ad itself has expired

Default Re: My 60's Star Kit !!

Hello,

Ive never come across this type of the Star double tom holder being placed on top of a Star stand ...
The bottom of the stand is clearly and definitely Star made.

Can you see any welding on the upper part of the stand (indicated that it has been put there as a modification)?
And are there any extra holes in the bass drum (showing that there has been a tom holder bracket in place before)?

If not, this is a really rare and original bird.

Cheers, Ralf

Indeed Ralf answered this - will help in full analysis. I have seen the same style HH stand in mint condition - sold on the bay.
