Wow, Right On Stef! You got a steal of a deal...
It's the only 10 lugger I've seen so far and in pristine condition...

Sweet snare, Stef...I bet she cranks! Doesn't look like the Camco fever is going to get cured anytime soon, huh? I'm officially requesting a pic of the entire collection for us to drool over!

Thanks guys,

By no means this drum is in showroom condition but I must admit that the polished chrome hides a lot of the flaws.

There is quite a nasty scratch on the panel left from the badge.

Im not to worried about it though taking into account this is probably one of the rarest Camco snares around.

If Sling says its the first he saw so far, it must be,...

Sound wise, the drum is similar to a 6,5 10-lug Slingerland Sound King I have. Its just a tad dryer and I have the impression its not as loud. In all its a very sensitive and responsive drum and like most Camco Drums the tuning range is huge.

Fabulous snare Stef. Been after one of those for a while and narrowly missed one here in Sydney, Australia quite a few years back.

Still on topic, I just happened to be in Brisbane and visited the unexpectedly large and fine drum hire outfit The Drum Cartel.....and here were just three of the many, many snares (and kits) they had on hand - 10 lug 6 1/2" LA badge, a 10 lug 5" LA badge and a Geo. Way student model. Also had a couple of LA kits there. These were all in pretty good nick (the owner wasn't there to ask but wouldn't surprise me if the 6 1/2" deep was the same one I'd been after way back).

Hope springs eternal.

Thanks David,

I went on their FaceBook page,... my goodness what a collection !?

I’ve seen at least 3 Camco sets and a couple of snares,... I believe all LA badge indeed.
