Default JEFF CAMPITELLI and SCOTT MCLEAN.

JEFF CAMPITELLI and SCOTT MCLEAN:

I'm pictured here with my friend Jeff Campitelli (drummer for Joe Satriani).....
...... As we are posing for this photo, I start to realize (while I'm sitting there)
how nice and comfortable Jeff's drum throne really is.

This drum kit is Jeff Campitelli's DW Oyster Black kit.
You will see this kit at many Joe Satriani concerts and
on several live DVDs that have been recorded and released
world wide during the past several years.

Default Re: Wow!!!!!!!!!!

I was asked to repost "The Story Of The 3k Snare" for reference purposes on this thread.

"OldSchool" (a member here on the Vintage Drum Forum) started this thread when
he witnessed a Ludwig Oyster Blue Pearl Jazz festival snare drum sell on Ebay for
$3,000.00 dollars. Everyone was shocked to see this drum sell for such a high price.
There were many theories among the members as to why the price went so high.

I'm the person who purchased this drum.
I'm here to share the story and explain the details with everyone.

Here is the story:
The auction was a reserve auction. I was the highest bidder with the winning bid
of $1,500.00 dollars, but the reserve price (hidden) was not met.
So, during the last few minutes, I continued to raise my maximum bid so that
nobody would try to "out bid" me during the last few minutes.
As I continued to raise my maximum bid, I hit the reserve price of $3,000.00 dollars
by ACCIDENT. I was NOT planning to spend that amount of money on this drum because
the photos that were posted on Ebay were not very clear. I was looking for a drum that matched
my drum kit perfectly. I could not tell if this drum's wrap pattern was a perfect match to my kit
because of the low quality photos, however, I decided to take a chance on the drum
and bid anyway. I hit the reserve price by mistake, but, because I'm a man of honor and
due to the fact that I was the highest bidder, I purchased the drum.

About the 3k drum:
When the drum arrived, it was in MINT condition. It was like the day it left the factory.
It was a time capsule and worth the large amount of money because of it's perfect condition.
Not one flaw. It was like brand new. An amazing and rare find.
The drum is very beautiful and excellent, however, there was one problem.
I discovered that the oyster wrap on the drum was not a perfect match to my kit.
The 3k snare's oyster wrap does not have a "linier" pattern like the rest of my kit
(see the photos posted below for comparison purposes).

Bonus story and conclusion:
I have been looking for over 25 years for a Ludwig Oyster Blue Pearl Jazz Festival snare drum
that has the "linier" oyster pattern, plus, the drum must have a maple inner ply of wood like
the rest of my kit. This is no easy task because a drum with both qualities is very rare.
My drum kit's wood plys are maple/poplar/mahogany/wrap.

I did find a person who had the "perfect" snare drum to complete my kit.
He is a member here on the forum also, but, he did NOT want to sell his drum to me.
I offered to trade my 3k snare for his drum, plus, I had to give him 4k on top of that.
It had to be a high price offer for him to be happy and agree to make the trade.
Yes, a crazy price for this vintage drum, but, after 25 years of searching,
it was a "once in a lifetime" find for me that I did not want to pass up.

I now own the perfect snare drum to complete my dream kit.
I'm looking forward to creating and recording great music with these drums.

This completes my "once in a lifetime find" vintage drum story.


Side note:
.... Thank you to all of the Vintage Drum Forum members for your support, interest, and kind
emails regarding this story. There are many great members here at the Vintage Drum Forum.

Mr. LudwigDrummer - I totally understand where you are coming from.
This is how I feel:
If you're looking for that special drum and can afford it when you find it....go for it because if you don't as time goes by you'd only wish you would have. I know, I've been there a few times myself. It's only money and they're only drums. Have fun with them...enjoy! That's a good story and it's nice that you found that very special drum to complete your kit.

I will add......it's nice when we get a very good deal on a special drum sometimes. I'm talking about finding that valuable/collectible vintage drum maybe at a yardsale for $5 for instance. We all talk about those finds. But, sometimes it's a little harder to talk about paying what you have to to get a special drum like you did here. Again, I say you did good.....you got the very drum you were seeking all those years....good stuff!

Cheers to you mate!

Money doesn't matter.
The most important thing is what you feel when you look, and touch this snare.
This feeling is priceless, man. Maybe there are some "WTF? smiles" here and there from some people, but I'm happy that you fulfilled your dreams.

Keep on man!

cheers!

LudwigDrummer,

I understand your love and passion for your drums. I would gladly pay 3K or even 7K for a drum that is made with such quality and care. People don't understand how it is to have a pure passion for something.

Default Re: Wow!!!!!!!!!!

This has turned into a really strange thread. It has gone from , who would pay 3K for that snare, with much detraction to, someone did pay , actually 7K(but not for it), with much praise,because the identity of the players became known. It is a musical instrument and somewhere the value of the instrument as a musical tool has gotten lost.
If that instrument can help the musician achieve something that a 200.00 snare drum cannot, then it may well be worth it.
In Canada, the Canada Arts Council owns several rare ,very ,very valuable stringed instruments , which they make available through some application process to gifted young musicians. One is a Strad. , that James Ennis had for a year and then it went to someone else. Did the music benefit from this over million dollar expenditure, taken from the taxpayers?
There were some recent , sort of blind playings, that took place---several instruments, a Strad, another notable Italian instrument, and two or 3 others of fine but not particularily pedigreed stock. Several high end professionals played and compared them , without knowing their origins. In all cases the Stradivarius was ranked down the list by the players. The star was a modest but well made factory made instrument.
We live in a world where cult status and style, trump substance at every turn. If that drum brings to the music, something that cheaper drums cannot then it has that value, otherwise it is simply a collectible----no better ,no worse than a teapot or a 19th century toilet seat. The buyer clearly has the means to afford this, however that was garnered, and likes his purchase. If the music justifies the cost , all that much better but that is going to be a harder one to sell than the drum.

Again.....WOW!!!!!!!!

I honestly don't know if I should apologize for starting this thread or feel good about it. What I do know is that I've thoroughly enjoyed all the input that it's generated. A big THANK YOU to all the contributors, especially to LudwigDrummer for sharing the background of the initial sale, which he certainly didn't have to do.

If there's a better drum forum out there than this one I certainly haven't found it. I feel very fortunate and thankful to have the opportunity to correspond with and learn from so many experts in the field. Who says "you can't teach an old dog new tricks"?
