Default Re: Hollywood Drum kit

i dont wanna talk about it!!!!
its kind of a "funny" story... when i was14 years old, i bought/traded it with a chainsaw!!!

then i played on them for 2 years, and sold it for about 80 dollar ( didnt now anything about drums back then....)
the guy who bought it, brought it to the lokal school over here, and there it stood at a storage for about 7 years (ca 2007) . Then i called him and wondered where the drums was now, but he told me that he still think they are at the scool. so i contacted the scool, but the drums are gone! so, i dont know were they took off, the headmaster of the scool didnt know, but they were NOT trown away as garbage! so im gonna put in an adwertise in the local newspaper, and see if someone knows where it is. so.... wish me luck

Itīs really hard to tell since they are so very rare.
Iīve seen a complete kit for sale in Italy (I believe it was 18 BD, 12 TT, 16 FT, 14x5 snare) on wheel rack.
They asked 2300 Euro for it, which is about 3000 USD today, (varies, depending on exchange rates).

I love this kit! I played one every day for about three months - in North Queensland, Australia, if you can believe that. I as 15 and working in a music store. The kit I played had the pedal floor tom. The sound was just fantastic. I often think about that kit. I have always thought Meazzi pioneered the quick release lug system that Pearl took up for a while. Anyway, great pics - thanks.
