Leedy 1947 “Time Capsule” Complete 26, 13, 16, 7×14 Set, Cases, Hardware, Cymbals, Sticks. Near New!! $4,495.00
Wow, WOW, WOW! WOW!! I’ve been doing this for many years now. I’ve seen some pretty amazing drums. When a set like this finds me I get really excited. It’s so extremely rare that a set of this vintage and quality arrive in such amazing condition and completeness. This set breathes the rarified air of the top 2% of the best sets I’ve seen in my life.
This is an original 1947 complete gigging set, exactly as it was lovingly owned and used by it’s original owner. I personally inspected and appraised this set for the current owner back in 2010. I’ve gone over each drum cymbal and piece of hardware. It’s all there in excellent condition with no notable flaws. There’s a few small spots of corrosion on some of the hardware, a little wear on the bass hoops and a few tiny scuffs on the finish. All original Leedy Superior Hard White logo calf heads with the exception of the snare which has an era correct calf head in excellent shape. All the original Leedy cases and canvas bags in excellent shape are included plus a collection of sticks and brushes.
The set includes the following,
Leedy 1947 Black Diamond Pearl 26×14, 16×16, 13×9 and 14×7 snare.
A Zildjian Cymbals, 16, 14, 12, 10, Zenjian 12. 18 and 19″ authentic Chinese Cymbals (19″ is cracked, see pics).
Tom mount, floor tom legs, bass spurs, snare stand, hi-hat stand, bass drum pedal, bass muffler, shell mounted cymbal stands. There are enough shell mounted and floor mounted cymbal stands to mount 5 cymbals. The hi-hat stand and bass pedals are included but not visible in the photos.
Complete Leedy fiber cases and canvas bags.
The photos don’t lie. This set is damn near perfect. The only way I could look this good when I’m 71 would require plastic surgery, steroids, lots of make up… and photoshop!!
The Leedy Brass Timbales and cowbells in the photos are available but not included. They are listed separately on this website under “Accessories”.
