Proudly hand-crafted in Gretsch’s Ridgeland, SC, USA factory, Gretsch Brooklyn produces a sound that is immediately recognizable, yet distinctively reinvented. Brooklyn drums feature 6-ply North American maple/poplar shells and are made slightly thicker than Gretsch’s USA Custom Drums and have a 30-degree bearing edge. Shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer. Each shell comes with a distinctive Brooklyn internal shell label that identifies the drum shell model number and serial number.Brooklyn toms and snares feature the distinctive Gretsch “302” hoop. Its 3mm thick and double-flanged and is reminiscent of hoops used by Gretsch until the mid 1950’s. Brooklyn delivers classic Gretsch tones that are full, punchy and warm. Brooklyn’s innovative specifications created a new Gretsch tonal characteristic that is slightly more open and satisfyingly ambient. There is no denying that Brooklyn drums possess the sound of classic Gretsch drums, but deliver their own sonic personality.

Pearl Roadshow Junior Complete Set - NEW! Pearl Black Pearl Roadshow Junior Complete Set - NEW! Pearl Grindstone Sparkle
Pearl Pearl Roadshow Junior Compl... $499.99
Pearl Roadshow Junior Complete Set It's always difficult to find a quality starter set for a younger enthusiast. Many smaller kits are toy-like and do not last and often have non replaceable drum heads and parts. Pearl have solved this with the Pearl Roadshow Junior based on the popular full size Roadshow kit that is an excellent starter set that we sell. Following in the footsteps of Pearl’s Roadshow series for beginning drummers, this is not merely a toy made to look like a drum set. The Roadshow Jr. is an all-in-one five piece kit featuring hardware, cymbals, and sturdy White Poplar shell construction for an exceptional, tunable, powerful playing experience. The package includes bass drum pedal, snare, cymbal, and hi-hat stands, and a 13” crash and 10” hi-hat metal cymbal set. Second-rate gear only makes the drumming journey harder.  Here are some things to look for when buying your first drum kit; see for yourself how Roadshow Jr. stacks up. 16”x 10” bass drum 13”x 8” floor tom 10”x 5.5" tom 8”x 5” toms 12”x 4” snare drum Hardware Cymbal, hi-hat, and snare drum stands should start with a strong and well-balanced tripod base. ROADSHOW JR’s included hardware package is scaled to the reachable -and portable- needs of the smaller player without sacrificing quality. All stands are height and angle adjustable, and the included bass drum pedal features a smooth chain drive for fast, accurate play. Specs Snare Drum The Snare Drum is the voice of the drum set, and ROADSHOW JR. features a powerful 12”x4” model with similar specifications to Pearl’s popular Short Fuse auxiliary snare for professional players. Bass Drum The bass drum is the tonal heartbeat of the drum set and the foundation for the rest of the complete drum set-up. The ROADSHOW JR bass drum includes locking, adjustable feet (or ‘spurs’), and secure mounting for toms and accessories. Cymbals ROADSHOW JR’s included cymbal set features a 13” crash and a set of 10” hi-hat cymbals. Great for accents and timekeeping until an upgraded cymbal set-up is acquired.

Trixon Early 1950's Solist Set drum kit Trixon Trixon Early 1950's Solist Set drum kit Trixon
Trixon Trixon Early 1950's Solist Set $2,500.00
This is a very early 1950's Trixon set. I believe it is a somewhat modified "Solist" model. Beautiful thin beech shells with re-rings. Big and full sounding. Other than the 13" tom all other drums are non-standard sizes. we were fortunate to have had some new old stock Remo Ambassadors that fit the snare top and floor tom top and bottom. The bass drum and snare bottom have store tucked calf heads, we altered and old 24" metal flesh hoop for one side and used the original wood flesh hoop to assemble the bass drum. The snare bottom has a calf head that is more of a batter weight tucked on an altered metal flesh hoop so we could get it assembled. Although these drums are playable and sound great they are probably a special occasion studio set/show piece for the next owner. As far as I can tell the following mods have been done: Bass drum cymbal mount in the center looks added later. The 14" (metric) tom was originally mounted on the bass drum but at some point very early in it's life original Trixon floor tom legs were added to the drum to allow a more conventional set up. Issues: Other than the metric sizing and replaced heads the drums appear to have all parts like mufflers, slotted tension rods, spurs, legs and mounting hardware. Floor tom has 2 small holes that might be for a muffler except the original muffler is in place and different. Each drum has an extra vent size hole that has no grommet and is possibly an owner drilled hole, maybe he had heaters in the drums at some point, hard to know. Chrome is excellent, a few lugs have some cracks the finish is even across all drums and is a light green sparkle. The photos make the drums look less matched than they are in person. Any questions feel free to ask.

Ludwig Classic Maple Pro Beat Citrus Mod Outfit Drum Kits Ludwig Ludwig Classic Maple Pro Beat Citrus Mod Outfit Drum Kits Ludwig
Ludwig Ludwig Classic Maple Pro Be... $4,999.00
Ludwig Classic Maple Pro Beat Citrus Mod Outfit Citrus Mod has been one of Ludwig’s most revered finishes in the collector circuit for the last few decades. The initial release was part of a 3-color assortment, with Mod Orange and Psychedelic Red, that captured the dynamic aesthetic of the psychedelic, Swingin’ 60’s. Its extremely limited nature turned this finish into a cult classic that demands some of the biggest resale values in vintage drums. Now after nearly 50 years, Citrus Mod returns! Like all other Vintage Oyster finishes from Ludwig, these are authentically produced by a hand blending process of material to recreate this illustrious look. No reproduction printed material here. Only the highest quality of handcrafted acetate film! Ludwig's reissue pays respect to the craft of age-old material production and brings back one of Ludwig's most-in-demand finishes. This is the new Citrus Mod wrap original introduced in the 1971 catalogue. We built this set based on the Catalogue Pro Beat configuration of that year. Drums are shown with the LM402 B stock snare and the new Speed King Pedal. We have outfitted with an assortment of vintage Ludwig hardware and Zildjian cymbals. The set is sold as a shell pack with bass drum and toms. Toms have shell mounted classic brackets and Internal baseball bat mufflers. Sizes: 13 x 9 14 x 10 16 x 16 18 x 16 24 x 14
