Default Re: Qualifications for a Virgin Bass Drum

Who bought up Lee Country Music? I am not in the business of buying and selling drums. It is my hobby. As a hobbyist, my opinion is that $1,000 is too much for anyone to expect to get for a very nice garden variety Rogers bass drum. I don't think that I even know who you are.

I can't believe nobody thought my last post was funny??? It made me laugh again when I re-read it today...tough crowd... Crickets... Bueller?... Bueller?... Anyone?...Is this thing on?

The thing that makes it so funny to me is that it is only funny to lunatic drum nerds, and to explain why it is funny to anyone else would be futile, and take a day and a half.

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.

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.
100% agreed. Thank you for telling it like it is.

This is also my definition of a "virgin" bass drum.

There does, in fact, appear to be extra holes. Surprised I didn't notice it, or anyone else for that matter! Why is there a hole in the middle of where the Knobby is located? Did someone attempt to use a Swivo holder at this location? That hole doesn't look factory to me. Based on that, it's possible the Knobby was also installed at a later date.

How can the shell be "virgin" if there are at least 32 holes drilled in it to attach the lugs? Once the holes are drilled for the lug mounting screws, the drum shell is a fertile field for a vent hole and for installing spurs, tom mount(s), cymbal mount(s), and other attachments.

Howie funny as many of your opinions this seems to be you as the only one island !!! But you as only a hobbist probably aren't aware of such !!??

+1. For the record: personal apology sent to Leedy for serial sarcasm. Won't even respond to Dumbob since I thought I was on ignore.

On the virgin Q : BEC's note about "top virgin" = manufacturer's lingo for that type of kick. Even though Markrocks opinion about a virgin having no spurs is probably technically correct - would most just focus on the lack of cymbal + tom mounts = virgin? I'd fall in this latter category since a modern kit (say 1960's onward) without spur mounts would be weird.
