What a fantastic legacy. I got to spend a couple of afternoons with the original owner of my Oaklawn Camco kit. These kind of things put a value on an instrument that can't be measured.

Couldn't agree more.
I'm all about the history and provenance.
Priceless to me.

Ditto on that. Nice interview and nice drum. I don’t have history on anything I have. Very special.

What a good story. Thank you for sharing. Probably many of us share it also. Shopped with my dad for my 73 Ludwig Butcher Block set. Standard 22,12,13,16. Played in HS and traveled with concert band, etc. They went to college with me and still clean and playin them today
