Re: Buddy Rich Drum Set

Re: Buddy Rich Drum Set

Thatís the set we talked about here. Donn Bennett is working with the owner on the sale .. but .. could take a while, if at all! Niche item for a specific buyer, and again, if there is one!

Re: Help Identifying a Possible Fibes Snare

OB!

As mentioned, I know/play ORIGINAL Fibes pretty cold .. 1965 to 1979 .. and not so much Corder, Darwin, and then Fibes Austin. So ... I did some research. I believe the drum he has here is...

Re: Help Identifying a Possible Fibes Snare

OB!
The drum shown is not fiberglass ... it's a maple shell .. so .. it could either be a Corder made drum which would date it at 1979 on .. or .. a Fibes Austin which would date in from 1994....

Re: Help Identifying a Possible Fibes Snare

OB!

That pic is owned by my buddy David who is actually the owner of the VDF, hence the watermark. I have in my collection .. from the same photo shoot .. the actual catalog shot, but without BR in it...

Re: Buddy Rich Slingerlands thread UPDATE

Buddy's sticks were NOT large actually. I have in my BR collection, a nice sampling of all the models he used between 1950 and 1982. I'll attach a pic. His stick was what I like to call a modified 7a...

JUST the snare rash on the 9X13 alone would mean very little .. you are correct in stating that this type of "damage" isn't all that unique .. however, in this case it's another link...

Re: Buddy Rich Slingerlands thread UPDATE
