Supposedly 70's vintage and original wrap. What would you pay for it?

It looks like one of two , a set similar to the Ludwig blue note I don’t have the car on it but as a virgin bd I’d say 350 to 500. Sorry I just saw the center Tom mount holes not that rare after all ...

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.

Oh, okay. I thought your price was high.

I think that a quick $150 plus actual shipping charges would be correct for this drum. The Set-O-Matic mount plate should cost $50-$70. The double tom mount for the plate is more plentiful than the single tom mount. Doubles are selling for $65-$75. Singles are selling for $90-$120. Does this drum have spurs and spur receivers? If not, that would be another expense.

Yes, these prices are in the ballpark!

+1 with the others and appears to be early 70's, a serial could help narrow it down.

Looking closer it looks like there is some hoop damage. on the front head at the bottom and on the back head at the top. The inlay is certainly missing on the back hoop at the top. May want to get more detail about that.

Color is not rare by any means, although it does include the cymbal arm.

The serial number is 62145.

Yeah, the hoops may be damaged but he says that's tape on there. And it looks to have spurs.

We've settled on $100 (down from $150) without the Aquarian Super Kick I that's batter side. It's local on Craigslist.

Thanks.

Around '72 for that serial. Clear maple interior would be expected. Part or all of the cymbal arm may be non-original. Price seems fair though if no other issues.
