Relatively Large Ludwig Orphan Trade Thread (plus some Gretsch)

So, here's the score. I have a heaping helping of shells I've bought for a rewrap project. Some of them are wrap-free, some have wrap that's loose and would be equally easy to reglue OR to remove, and some would require dewrapping good drums that haven't committed any sins beyond ending up cheap on eBay. This is mostly the last category.

I'm throwing these out there in the hopes that somebody looking for the exact drums I have has a bare or pretty-roached finish shell they're thinking of rewrapping anyway. I need to be pretty close to like-for-like and size-for-size here. I'd prefer to not wreck good drums, but I just can't trade a 1970 clear interior 26" shell for an 80's 6-ply 16" deep w/Modular hardware. I could sell these and try and buy replacements, but maybe we can help each other out and skip a couple steps.

For pricing sale offers, but I'd just be looking to go buy the same sized replacements on eBay.

I'm okay with ending up with enough of one color (i.e. a bunch of white cortex, black, or silver sparkle) to start from there, but that seems like threading the needle of unlikely luck. Never get what you want if you never ask, though, I guess. Somebody might desperately need something.

Can sell/trade as complete drums (where mentioned) or just a shell/badge.

Them 14" and 15" Blue Oyster toms are calling out to me. I don't have shells to trade but I could be tempted to part with money if the price was right-ish.

I can get you some in the next few days. They're really pretty nice. Emailing me is better, since I'm just not as active on here as DFO and Cymbalholic - mobile version on iPhone is... not optimal.
