Default Blaemire Fund Fire Sale!

Hi All,

I tell no lies... title says it all. This is the first of a few 'Blaemire Fire-Sales' I will be conducting to help raise $ so I can afford to buy one of Jerry's new kits. I'm offering some top-shelf stuff and a few other items that will (all) fit anyone's budget.

I will pay shipping (lower 48 states only!) on any and all items I have up for sale. All prices listed in the photos -includes shipping-!

No 'sales pitches'. You guys know what these drums are. I'll allow the photos to speak for me. Any questions? Please feel free to pm me. Also -PLEASE- no tire-kickers! Serious inquiries from serious buyers only. Thank you.

My loss is your gain. Help me out here, boys. I want me some green glass real bad!

John

*Woody kit is still available!

* The K is SOLD!

... more. There is also a complete set of heavy-duty TAMA hardware that I'm willing to sell either as a 'package deal' or individually. Make offer.

MORE TO COME!

Please, no trade offers. I'm trying to raise cash.

John,

Can you post some better pics of the woody kit? The one you posted are kind of dark.

What kind of overall condition are they in?

Thanks,

Buzz

Those are some very reasonable prices on very desirable drums.

Buzz,

My 'Levon Helm-style' woody kit: I made this one for myself, for my own pleasure so it's an assemblage of hand-picked vintage parts. Purely my own creation. All components, ie; shells, hardware, claws, is in clean, A-1 condition. The drums look new.

I took the photo in my basement, not the best lighting conditions. I'll set it up for you and add a few more shots. As far as condition, they're like new! All the shells were sanded, stained and the wood brought back to peak condition. It's an orphan kit, so the color of the wood stain is a little inconsistent from drum to drum, but they look like a 'kit' altogether. I filled some holes in the rack tom because it is a snare conversion. The floor and bass drum are perfect. I used Ludwig Standard hardware all around. The badges are just paper place-holders but they look damn cool and real!

The real deal with the kit is the sound. These are big, warm, deep sounding drums. The shells are all vintage 3-ply mahogany/poplar/maple with rock maple re-rings. They look and sound killer. More photos for you shortly. Check back.

John
