    Anybody heard of or know anything about this brand? A friend of mine just picked up a set from a thrift shop for $50.

    No, but get your friend to post pics.

    Always want to find info on vintage boutique brands.

    Here are the pics he sent me via text message. I'm not sure what all he got. I know he mentioned a floor tom that was Ludwig and the rest is this "Stadium New York" brand...

    Looks like an MIJ Slingerland knock-off kit. Love the random name.

    Maybe it's not so random; maybe they were made & named right after The Beatles played at Shea Stadium. Maybe.

    MIJ. I had a Stadium snare in blue sparke once. Was almost an exact copy of a Slingerland, with more details copied than some later MIJ copies. Thin shells with re-rings. Sounded OK, nothing special.
