    Check out melany_drums on ebay. You can get an 8 x 14 shell, wood of your choice, bearing edges of your choice, choice of vertical or horizontal grain, less than a $100 for oak: https://www.ebay.com/itm/TOTAL-SALE-Best-Deal-Oak-14-inch-Stave-snare-Drum-Shell-by-Melany-Drums/142784634769?hash=item213ea09f91:g:2AMAAOSwBgVa7sdN

    I'm waiting for my three shells and then will have a report but they have high end equipment and are very responsive. In Latvia, so shipping is not quick.

    I'm looking for a 16x16 Gretsch Maple Renown floor tom in cherry burst. Preferably with the square badge. I'd be happy to trade my 14x14 floor tom of the same type or buy it outright. Thanks!

    ITEM FOUND! THANKS! Hi! I listed this in the WANTED section as well, but this may apply more to The Orphanage-Wanted section....


    I acquired a 1966 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl 16 " floor tom in excellent condition to go with my 1966 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl 13 " rack tom in excellent condition


    In order to complete my set, I am looking for a 1965 or 1966 Ludwig 14x22 Super Classic bass drum in oyster black pearl wrap with Super Classic lug configuration


    -Looking for a structurally sound drum (in round with good bearing edges) with/without rail mount and the tom holder ; no cracks, rot or repairs please.

    -Small rail mount bolt holes are fine but no double tom diamond mount holes please

    -minor fade okay but no yellowing please.

    -prefer complete with lugs/tension rods and claws.



    -complete original oyster black wrap and original interior white Resacoat paint
    -Keystone badge with serial number range in the 1966 year


    OPTIONAL: interior date stamp indicating 1965 or 1966 as the year built.

    Prefer both hoops with complete inlay in decent shape

    -both batter and resonant heads preferable

    -not looking for a collectors grade drum ; players grade is great

    DFO members help for a possible source for this drum is very much appreciated! Thanks!
