Postby cotyRleffingwell » Sun Oct 14, 2007 4:19 am

I recently aquired another 4-piece kit the exact same in year (1969) and color (champagne sparkle) so its now an 8 piece kit, i just haven't had the time to get new pics on here. Tell me what ya think! Thanks!

Hi there,
Here are some vintage drums I've worked on in the past and/or still own...

Here's an old Leedy kick in the midst of restoration. Still needs a few lugs.
Image
This is a WWII era Slingerland kick that I restored for a customer.
Image
Image
This is a 70's stopsign badge Gretsch kit that I restored. It had been re-wrapped in black, and all kinds of extra holes drilled. I converted the 14" tom shell into a 5x15 snare drum.
Image
Image
A tom and bass drum from a WWII era Slingerland Radio King kit. Check out the snare below. The Holy Grail.
Image
Another shot of the restored Gretsch kit.
Image
Some more shots of some restored drums, as well as a few of my own custom-built snares which have "vintage" looks.
Image
Image
...my 1930s Leedy Reliance. 5.5x14 spun brass shell. Warmth of wood, crack of brass.
Image
...yes. A 1920-ish engraved Ludwig Black Beauty. Not mine. Appraised for $4,000.
Image
Image
Image
1960s Chrome over brass Rogers DynaSonic. Sold.
Image
An old 60s Rogers Holiday floor tom. Project drum. Sold.

Vistalite 10 Peice

Postby druminzeetobaccofade » Fri Nov 23, 2007 1:08 pm

Here is my first kit, took me 3 years to get it all together. Vintage Vistalite Ludwigs, pretty rare 8", 10" and 14" concert toms w/12", 13", 16" tom toms with 2 22"x14" bass drums.. Snare drum is not in picture, but is a 6.5" x 14" Vintage Vistalite drum

I don't play these antymore for the simple fact that I've just built a new kit. So I cleaned them up and covered them, I'm looking forward to selling if anyone is interrested.

Here's my contribution to this thread! This was my first kit, i got it at at my uncles pawnshop in 1994. The 16" floor tom is not original, i custom ordered it in '95 when i first started working. I paid more for that drum than i did for the entire kit. It is in impeccable condition, i just need a dedicated set of cymbals for it. My problem is too many kits, not enough cymbals for them all.<a href="http://s39.photobucket.com/albums/e167/timmydog8172/?action=view&current=100_1861.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e167/timmydog8172/100_1861.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

I have the vintage Ludwigs, a Rogers "Big R" from the mid to late '70s, a beat up Pacific that i keep in the band room for band rehearsals for the fact that there is no security up there, and my "babies", a DW collectors in Candy apple to tobacco fade over curly maple. I also have an electronic Roland V-drums that i'm looking to sell!

I'm sure there are from the same era. Possible the same year. Yours even has the matching snare. Cool.

When the Beatles became popular, this kit sold like hotcakes. It was the Pearl Export of the 1960's.

Not really the right wrap for Ringo Style. You have a Black Diamond Peral. I believe Ringo used Black Oyster...
MichaelJ[/quote]


You are correct there.

I recently saw a book called "Beatles Gear" which is a very detailed book about all of the Fab Four's equipment. All of Ringo's kits from that era are featured (he still owns them all!!) and the early kits were indeed Black Oyster. He had 2 kits with a 20" Bass drum, and later moved to a 22" (by 1966).

A cool book if you can find it.

Here's a Drumkit I recently found in Phoenix,AZ. for $450.00 plus sales tax at a local guitar shop.
I am in the process of restoring it to it's former glory.I am sure it is made between 1969-1971,but that's all I know about the set so far..check the pics for more....
