once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

This offering is stirring up quite the buzz over at DFO. Check it out here.... https://www.drumforum.org/threads/an...around.164051/

I just don't have an extra $85K lying around!

Let us not forget:

We have a couple members here who could actually afford that asking price (certainly not me), but is a one-of-a-kind piece of drum history worth $85,000? It very well could be considering that someone paid a $million for one of Ringo's original bass reso heads.

The really neat thing about this Gladstone is that this very drum and stand are featured on the cover of Ted Reed's book...

A true piece of drum history indeed.

No doubt the coolest drum to ever be on Ebay I reckon! If I had the money, then this would be a toy I would want to have. Alas....
