Your best NOS find
 
Hi,

I wondered if anybody would like to share his/her best NOS find. :-)

I would like to start with this very rare Paiste 404 Black Label 20" Crash

Years ago before I was a collector I walked in a building to bid a restoration in the early nineties and there was a music store in basement old guy had nos snares andvcymbals
I just looked at them and his prices were 2500 for the snares I think one was a ringo snare

All my NOS finds were Slingerland hardware. I was in a training class back in a small suburb of Boston in the 90's. I found a small music store in a rural area and decided to check it out. Sitting in lower cabinet were two Slingerland boxes that caught my eye. They were unsold inventory of a #1382 Rocket snare drum stand and the very popular #804 flush-base hi hat stand. They were cool, but I didn't purchase them. Months later, and back home in southern California, I called the store and asked about these and even told them where I had seen them. Sure enough, they were still there! I did a deal over the phone and paid by credit card. The store owner shipped them to me!

The last piece was a NOS Slingerland Tempo King bass drum pedal, complete with the original box, that I found while on business in Las Vegas in the late 90's. That music store is no longer there! Since I drove there, I purchased it on the spot and took it home!

I've been lucky buying some old gear but never NOS. Since I don't have a story myself, I'll proxy this one:

Off the top of my head, mine would be a NOS Ludwig Speedmaster bass pedal.

Hi Mike!

Now, that's cool! You also reminded me that I did purchase a NOS Ludwig beater, still wrapped up. I'm not home right now, but will upload the picture when I return home later today. Always nice to have my memory jogged! LoLoLoLo

I found a NOS Slingerland Tempo King at Steve Weiss Music (thanks Dan!) a few years ago and also a Ludwig Ghost from the estate of Ed Shaughnessy at Professional Drum Shop in Hollywood (thanks Stan!). I had to work the Ghost footboard by hand for about three minutes before the springs "relaxed". These are part of a bass drum pedal collection, it's a long story but it keeps me off the street...

Here's the NOS Ludwig 1286 beater I had years ago. I never used it and eventually sold it. It still had the original price tag! The shaft also had the milled flat spot.
