Nice looking kit. I thought the LaBoz badge was enormous, but those Crown badges cannot be missed!

Dan yes indeed these particular Crown badges used by Hoshino Kougyou are a thing where you either love them or you hate them They are one of my personal favorites.
"Crown" was used by a few different builders and each had a few different designs

this is a seller's pic of a kit built by Sakae the "Crown" badges on it are much more normal looking.

The fellow Neil who sold and shipped these drums to me was from South Korea but he lived in Edmonton Alberta Canada
Anyway Neil liked my drum display so much he took the Kijiji ad for his drums down and refused a few local offers, packed and arranged for shipping to me here in Rhode Island
(he did the absolute worst job packing the kit that you could possibly imagine)
But amazingly in spite of that, the drums arrived, all in good order .

Neil did all that, without collecting a single dime from me beforehand.

Of course I paid him promptly and gave him a gentle lecture
on always securing payment before he sends anything off to some buyer in the future.

But it was all because he was just a super nice guy and liked my MIJ drum display

That is one nice guy!

I'm thinking you may have the largest collection of MIJ drums in the world, or at least the largest collection in one warehouse. He was probably totally amazed when he saw your display. It's a veritable museum and your effort collecting all the information on these drums, makers, badges, etc. is making you into quite a curator as well.

When you retire from it all, you might want to consider selling out to a Japanese collector who is willing to do a container load shipment. Whenever I see vintage drums for sale that are in Japan, the prices are off the Richter scale.

Hello Dan Thank You very kindly for your comments pal
not sure we could measure up to any world status
but the current display has to be one of the larger in the New England area
all one needs is luck with a huge cheap space a little disposable income
and to be totally insane. ummmm errrrrr ...I mean , have a fondness for drums and nostalgia.

I thought I should mention that the display was very small at my old shop (1st. pic)
when Neil and I first corresponded about his little red pearl Crown kit

Fess up Kenwood, do you have as much in all those kits as it would cost to get just that one Ringo kit in the other thread?

That second picture is just fantastic! I'm going to print it out and show it to my wife. I can say something like, "It could be way worse my dear."

I think I peaked at around 25 Rogers kits in the mid-90's. She was working and had her own gallery back then and wasn't paying much attention. I had a good paying side job doing some ACAD and would divert a bit of the proceeds regularly. Worked out nicely. A full 4-piece 20, 12, 14 and PowerTone in top condition might have run a max of $900 at the time. It's been down hill ever since. All the way down to one last year. Ah, the memories of it all.

I did pick up a few this year. The prices have been pretty flat because of the covid thing.

Hello Dan I just could never spend super huge money for a single kit.
I think the most I spent on a single kit were these Superstars
http://www.vintagedrumforum.com/showthread.php?t=56042
I only have one 72 Rogers kit in butcher block
