I find it all the more satisfying to be playing drums in good condition that aren't made any more. Perhaps it's my age.

I wonder if there's another musical instrument that has such a long list of defunct brands as drum kits.


I'd guess Stadivarius, or other wooden stringed instruments.

A little back story on my Dixon kit...

When I ordered the kit it came with 10" 12" 14" toms. This was the Outlaw kit. They had another kit in the same color with larger drums, including a 16" floor tom. Now, knowing that they were selling these kits cheap to empty out their stock I knew I was going to have a problem. I wanted a 16" floor tom to have variety (change up with the 14" or just use both). So, I called and asked if they had any 16" floor toms around in this blue burst sparkle lacquer. They said yes, but it was with another kit arrangement. I then asked if they would think about breaking up that kit so I could purchase the one 16" drum. Mind you, I only paid close to $500 for my entire kit. They said NO!

So I switched into "I just gotsta have it mode", and I offered them $200 shipped to my address. I waited till the salesman asked his boss. I heard his boss in the background ask him "How much?"...Then he said, "Do it!" I got a big grin on my face because I knew I was now going to have a complete kit in the matching color (full maple too).

So, to have these drums in all the sizes is special. They sound perfect for the music we play and I couldn't be happier!
