Just saying if there was a snare

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.

Once again, I think you guys are low-balling the value of the kit. In my mind, the Leedy character plus-up outweighs everything. Try finding a 60s Leedy - you'll find 20 Slingerland kits for every one Leedy. Frankly, I don't think of BDP as a minus, just not a plus. Like blue or red sparkle - typical.

Sure looks clean to me. Weigh the advantage of a no-work acquisition into your equation.

But frankly, JR, you don't seem to keep kits in the stable very long, so are you really more asking about flip-value?
I was offered this kit for one of mine, just wanted to make sure it had the same value. I put mine at $1,200-1,300, so judging by what I've seen it wouldn't be a good trade.

I think that set can easily bring $700. I paid $700 for my blue sparkle '65 Leedys with changed tom legs and bass drum spurs. They're Slingerland drums in most ways. I too like the Leedy lugs. I use these drums on small space gigs, because they are 20/12/14. They sound fine and look good.

That kit sounds nice. Lift us a picture or two when a minute allows.
