Talking Re: How Many Vintage Drums Do You Own?

Most of my snares are still in the boxes they came in.

I'm in the process of setting a room up as my "Snare Lair"!

14 Kits total: 7 Ludwig kits from 1923 - 1980; a 1958 WFL New Yorker; 1960's 5 piece Mercury Pro; 1970's 4 piece Kent; 4 Gretsch kits

213 Snares (+/- a few I forgot to inventory) ranging from 1860 to 2019:
A. Lecomte & CIE, Lyon Healy, John Stratton J Howard Foote, Wurlitzer, Duplex, C. G. Conn, Oliver Ditson, John C. Haynes & Co, Walberg & Auge, Geo. B Stone & Sons, Leedy, Leedy & Ludwig, Ludwig & Ludwig, Ludwig, Liberty, Eugene Geisler, Slingerland, Gretsch, Rogers, WFL, Ajax Boosey and Hawkes, Olympic, Trixon, Peripole Products, Mastro, US Mercury Supreme, Stewart, Apollo, Andy K, Majestic, York, Beverly, Del Rey, Arbiter, Joyful Noise, Vintage Drum Co., Premier, Pearl
