Default Qualifications for a Virgin Bass Drum

Judge for yourselves. Does this quality for the status of virgin bass drum?

"Virgin" usually means the drum was never drilled for a tom mount. I don't see one. Even with a cymbal holder on the side there it still counts as a virgin.

I'm thinking she has lost her virginity, any extra holes, tom mount, cymbal mount.

A quite valid question. I'm not 100% positive what qualifies as virgin and had reservations about listing it as such. I had a sneaking suspicion this would start an argument in the pub.

I'd love to hang onto it and find the 12" (which should be easy enough) and the 14" (good one!). I'm nearing 50 and am a realist : not a good combination.

As another realist, I consider the asking price as unrealistic as it is posted in the current listing.

Thanks for adding your 2c. Now you can retire for the day.

I feel very strongly about the 2 cents i offered up. I love, have owned many, and gigged Rogers drums. But, I would never consider paying a thousand bucks for even the nicest condition 14x20" bass drum. Good luck with your offering. You may find someone desperate enough for an orphan bass drum who is able to rationalize paying that price for it. if you can't handle a critique of your listing, you must have a very thin skin.

I have a policy that in the RARE instance that there's a personality conflict with another member I won't chime in. Obviously, for now, that's you and I, Leedy.

Time to move on.

I'm late for the party but IMO a virgin bass drum is completely undrilled.
Such as the gorgeous pre serial 12x20 (yup) I just acquired.
I have some old school hoop mounted spurs & BOOM, we in business.
