$1250 (+actual shipping costs from the foothills of NC)

Pork Pie USA Custom maple 3-piece drum set

22” x 18” kick drum
12” x 7” rack tom with suspension mount
16” x 16” floor tom with legs

Sale includes the shells, the suspension mount for the rack tom, and the floor tom legs. This does not include snare, hardware, cymbals, throne, etc. Buyer pays actual shipping cost.

These drums have sequential serial numbers and were built in August 2015. Each drum has been dated and hand-signed by the owner of Pork Pie, Bill Detamore. I’ve played these out just a few times in the past couple of years, and they always traveled in cases. Condition of these is a solid 9 out of 10. I’m selling because I simply don’t use these anymore, so it’s time to pass them on to someone who will enjoy them. Note: The logo head with the initials does NOT come with the set, but I will include a ported logo as seen below. No trades. Paypal only. Message me if you have questions!

Wanted To Buy:

I'm in the market for a 7 ply, 12 x 8 Ludwig Classic Maple rack tom in this red sparkle. I need one that was made in recent years. There seem to be quite a few available in a finish similar that are vintage, have the blue/olive badge, etc, but I'm wanting one of the more modern ones. I also don't want one that has the giant hole from a Modular Mount. I would like one with the little badge like this one has.


If you have a 7-ply, 12 x 8 Ludwig Classic Maple rack tom in a lacquer (no wrap) of that is of this same time period, let me know!

Here's a rare opportunity, which I'm posting on two favorite forums for a limited time with special pricing for forum members. This great-looking solid steambent Bubinga 6.5x14 snare drum shell (with Bubinga re-rings) has a beautiful gloss finish and is ready for its build-out. It was intended as a demo at a trade show but missed the time window and now needs a home. It will be fitted out with our proprietary signature tube lugs (solid brass posts, polished stainless steel tubes), Trick multi strainer, Puresound wires, Evans G1/300 or equivalent, and either diecast or 2.3mm triple flange hoops. The hardware scheme could be brass/chrome, brass/black nickel, or chrome/chrome.

Regular street price of this completed drum is $900 USD with diecast hoops, or $850 with triple flange, but IT'S AVAILABLE TO FORUM MEMBERS AT 10% OFF until the end of this month. After that it goes into stock inventory at regular pricing.

Also available with shaped and inlaid wood hoops at an extra charge, if you prefer.

Another option, since snare beds have not yet been cut, is that it could be fitted out as a wonderful concert snare with Pearl SR500 Philharmonic strainer, triple cables, and gated diecast hoops for $1,100 minus the same 10% discount.

TERMS: Shipping is $40 to lower 48 states US. This drum is NOT AVAILABLE FOR SHIPPING TO ANY OTHER LOCATIONS. Purchase requires non-refundable down payment of 50% with the balance due when the drum is ready to ship (4 to 6 weeks). Payment by PayPal ONLY. North Carolina delivery requires 6.75% sales tax. To purchase, please contact me by PM on this forum -- first contact, first served.

How do concert and regular snare beds differ?
I agree, if this about the theory and design of snare beds, it should be in another thread. If it's about whether to buy a kit snare or a concert snare, it probably should be a PM. So I'll just provide a very quick answer and try to keep the thread on topic. In this shop, there are differences in the bed's depth, width, and ramp design. Once they're cut one way, it's hard to reshape them satisfactorily to the other.

1977 Premier model 2003 COA. Minimal "flaking" on shell. Beer barrel hoops in good shape/condition. Internal muffler is not original but NO new holes drilled to mount and it works very well. Wires in decent condition. Slotted rods. Sounds absolutely awesome. It's 6.5x14 and is the Big Brother to the 5x14 model 2000 which Keith Moon used. Would like $325 and I'll pay shipping.
