Gobs of snares... if you don't already have some, get some Acrolites.

I have no drums made in this century, and I'm quite pleased about that...

Its very hard to determine value because there are not many around. Some believe they are the same shell as the Slingerland at the time they were made by Gibson. They are VERY well made for sure. Reggie? told me they should be in the "mapex museum" though.

A very well made drum should not have contact with the headring !i
