Default Drum shop with the largest inventory of vintage drums.

I'm looking for recommendation's regarding drum shops that have, or can find vintage snare drums and kits.

I live in Selma Oregon and it's slim pickins' around here!

Looking for Radio King, One ply Artists, '60's Slingerland No. 133. Ludwig LM402 and LM405.

Thank you for any leads. A computer search does not compare to actual customer feedback/recommendations.

Since you're in Selma, you're only 4.5 hours away from Portland. I would recommend you take the journey up north and visit Revival Drum Shop!

Olympic Drums and Percussion is two gentlemen who I believe live in Seattle and Portland between them. Maybe you can combine that in your visit to Portland. I can second Revival Drum Shop and can also recommend Nelson's Drum Shop in Nashville (my neck of the woods). Good luck!

After trying all the above, I would recommend getting with Sherman and Mr. Peabody to use the Way Back machine to about 1950 and visit Franks Drum Shop in Chicago.

I would look at Drummers Tradition in San Raphael.

The last time I was in ,the manager was kind of a dick,but nice selection otherwise.

The Starving Musician chain in the bay area has some interesting finds now and then too.

Thanks for the info!

Yes, I know of the stores in Oregon.

I received a private message from a group member but I was unable to open it.

I will second that. They had an amazing selection of vintage snares and sets a couple years ago when I traded my Club Dates for my Rock Duo set.
