Default My 1963 Shelly Manne Drum Set

I will begin this post with an apology for posting lousy pictures of my favorite drum set. The pictures I take with my current cell phone have never come out good when I transfer them to my computer. They are usually "fuzzy". I think that I have finally--after about a year of frustration--found a way to improve this situation.

So, here's a picture that I snapped yesterday of this great little set-13,16, 20, matching Shelly Manne snare drum. I had some Slingerland bongos (bongo toms?) that I wrapped in the closest match to the beautiful SlingerLeedy vintage Black Diamond Pearl. Small Leedy lugs dropped right into the holes for the Slingerland lugs.

Of all of the dozens of drum sets that I have owned over sixty-plus years, this is the one that I think will stay with me forever.

My first two Rogers sets were 20,13,16. I eventually came back around to those sizes. Nice looking set you have there. That large patterned BDP is so nice.

Just incredible. That's probably my favorite BDP pattern. A great looking kit.

Alright. Youíve forced me to post a pic of mine. Well...Once was mine. I stupidly sold it. It went to a great guy in New Jersey. The Shelly Manne drum sets were some of the most beautiful Iíve seen:

That's a real beauty! And, trust me, you're not the only one that ever sold a kit and regretted it! I've sold quite a few kits, for considerably less than I paid, and kick myself about it to this day! What was I thinking?!!
