Default Had a lead on some vintage gear....

https://imgur.com/a/iTNJOAz
Iíd say we had a pretty good day! Drove out of state the day I got home from a business trip to meet a gentleman who is beginning to sell his collection. Incredibly unique guy, ultra eclectic, doesnít own a computer or a cell phone so it was a challenge....I had no idea what I was getting myself into but I couldíve talked to that gentleman for hours! So cool to see how boundaries whether itís age, background, or social status mean nothing when youíre talking it up with a new drum buddy! I got the opportunity of purchasing some of this gentlemanís collection letting him know Iíd get these drums to great homes! Awesome experience! All of the drums are up for sale if youíre interested let me know! Iíd love for a forum member to end up with them!
Iíve had trouble uploading photos the last several attempts. Consistently saying itís misisng a security token and that I need to contact a admin...

Is that purple Gretsch set a re-wrap?

Yes sir! Good eye Bob! I actually drove out there to checkout that kit. Bass and rack tom are both 70ís drums and I believe the floor was a round badge originally. Other than the rewrap drums are very clean and interiors are factory. All silver and the floor has a sticker inside.Wrap was professionally redone and looks excellent. All hardware looks to be original and I got a killer deal on them so I couldnít pass them up! Once I saw the snares I had to go to the atm!😂

Resize the photos usually works for me when I get that message.
Have to be smaller in size.
