Default Apollo guys here something you never see promo signs

I just paid for these they are being shipped today. I have never seen these before in 45 years in collecting MIJ drums and items
I can't wait to get them.
Photo is from the listing I will post better one's when I get them.

Mikey!

I've also never seen promotional items for MIJ drums! That sign is very cool, indeed!

Yes, You just bought them from me.

They came with an Apollo Megatone snare and Stand.
The Megatone is the precurser to the Tama Kingbeat. They have the exact same Star parallel strainer system and weigh a freaking ton. I mean really heavy.
Glad you like the signs.

The perfect coincidence. Two members exchange drum items as their ships pass in the night.

Great stuff.

Never heard of the Apollo Megatone!

I have a Star Kingbeat - I'd be interested to see what came before......

Star used the parallel system on its star, Royal star, Apollo drums, and then when it became TAMA, used same system.

So Ralf, that's exactly the same as my Royal Star Kingbeat then?
