Default Camco Oaklawn

Hi all - new to this forum. I just inherited a mint set of Camco Oaklawns from the 60s. They came in vinyl cases with all the original Camco hardware! Been sitting in a basement for 30 or more years. Even had some 60s Ks in the cymbal bag...

Does anyone know what wrap this is and what year it's from? Sizes are 20x14, 12x8, 14x14. I might even be interested in selling these drums if anyone is interested.

Josh

Get that kit up and running & then decide whether to sell them or not

The Finish/Colour is Charcoal Satin Flame (some brands used different names for this colour)

Cheers

Wow! congrats on getting those, they are beautiful! You wont have trouble selling those but if you are a drummer then why would you sell them.

I hope you keep them, very rare and great sounding drums, In very desirable sizes.

What makes these sizes so desirable? Seems like there too small to me, but mine is the same size, so just curious.
