Default Mod Orange bass drum or shell

To match these three born together toms
the purple is pretty much faded away
would consider any size must be drilled for separate lug sets

The three toms are cleaning up pretty well
somewhere, there has to be a bass drum? or decent mod orange shell?

Cool Re: Mod Orange bass drum or shell

Did you ever find a bass drum?

Cheers

Hello grantro

Well yes and no
after well over a year of daily web searches (I even checked in with BEC a few times)
In all that time only three possible candidates came up
The first was a keystone club date bass which was not suitable
the second drum was a pristine B/O 22" virgin with very vivid purple
The asking price was 1,200.00 and the drum was simply too nice to match up very well with my three moderately faded toms.

finally about a month ago I found a 22" keystone badged (1968) bass.
the drum is perhaps a tad more faded in the purple department (almost none) than are my toms (some traces of purple)
It cost me $600.00 (shipped) and is otherwise pretty complete
save for a section of mod orange inlay on both hoops. the seller also included the block lettered double tom arm and a fresh old-school logo resonant head.

So the kit from a practical and visual sense is complete and the match looks really awesome
but I still look every day for a fade matching bass that is B/O era correct

I know there's the thrill of the hunt and finding original examples, but if it was me, I'd just buy a old beater Ludwig set and recover them in new Mod Orange wrap, of which, there's plenty out there. It would save a lot of time spent searching and probably $$ too.

Hello Bob I can see your point
but my angle on it was I wanted to put to best use
these three nice original born together toms I already had

Best case scenario was a fade matching era correct blue /olive bass drum
But after waiting over a year for one and seeing just how seldom they appear as orphaned drums
I grew impatient and settled for a very close color match and had to bite the bullitt on the era correct thing
