Default Well................Kinda bought another drum

OK, I was in the antique shop with my wife and her mom and I came across a 28X14 Leedy bass drum, circa early 1940's.

My wife thought it would look cool as a decoration piece in my drum room (When I get one) So we bought it. Though I'd Love to refinish it and play it, she thinks It should just be decorative and retired from service. I forgot to take pics, but will get some up soon. Has all original hardware.

OK, that was 2 weeks right? I went 2 weeks without buying anything.............I think. We may have to consult the judges on this....................

Leedy's is real drum history, though a bass drum is a bit more than a curio you can put on the mantle. How bout doing something fun with it ( ........a thought ).

A friend had a studio where he used a couple of old Rodgers bass drums as wall mounted storage cabinets. The front had a drum head supported with ply in the back which would open up down the middle. It looked real cool.. kinda like the classic Calillac- in-the- wall type thing...

Btw, Pete, I need to borrow your Mrs. & your mum-in-law...I'm trying to convince my old girl not to scowl at me when i talk of a smaller jazz kit

Four regular bass drum legs and you have a wonderful, spill-proof coffee table.

lol, thats what the owner of the store told me to do as well. I don't know, I'd feel like I was mocking it if I did that. Kinda like an elephant leg umbrella holder, lol. Or using a Model T as a flower bed. :)

I wanna refinish it and Play it............have some convincing to do before that happens..lol

That doesn't count towards the bet right?
Now this post is dated for today

Judging by your timetable you consider the word "awhile" to mean roughly 3 weeks. So, technically.. yes, your safe.

2 words my friend... Drum Addict :-)

You might wanna use this quote as your signature ---> "Hi, my name is Drumsword and I'm an addict."

Oh ya, Stasz. I still want my 20 bucks and pair of sticks from winning the last bet on Drumsword.

Cool old drum - let's see some photos. Why not use it for a side table, then take it down and play it whenever you want? You're going to have to keep it somewhere when you're not playing it, so "store" it by using it as a table.

That is sooooo cool! You should use it as a second bass drum like Stanton Moore!

I'd go for the Stanton Moore thing. That's really awsome with a big kick I think, especially such a big one.

Man, now that would be a sweet extra drum to have laying around. Being 14" deep you could just mount it on the wall somewhere...or maybe throw it out back for the kids to use as a trampoline?

I'd mount that sucker behind my thrown like the guys used to do w/ gongs. You could keep a big mallet nearby to hammer on that sucker for a special effect.

Pete,

YOU ARE A SICK MAN...SICK I SAY, along with lucky falling into all these deals! Relapses on your part are a good thing so long as you are not financially suffering, and taking that trip to FLOrida seems to be saying you doing all right. Have fun out there and POST PICS for us other sicko's

you can always let the shop sent you the stuff you bought, or is that not an option in the USA?
