Re: 30’-40’s W&A Rose Pearl

Spaces/booths are a few hundred bucks. Don't wait til a few days ahead of the show to book, sometimes spaces sell out...

Re: Prices

Did you sell your punctuation too? (Hard to read post)
More folks seem to be buying buying vintage, I suppose the good old "cheap drum set days" are in the past.

Then I got the new 5.5" jazz...

Re: Stan Leveys Ludwig drums
