This particular post is why this site exists. We are a community, a brotherhood of drummers, and we help each other. One of our own, Denny Hair, is in need and sent me this heart breaking email the other day -
My wife has been diagnosed with a rare Liver Bile Duct cancer. The long and short of it is that it is incurable and to save her life will require a complete liver transplant. Time and money is not on our side.
So I am sending pictures of the collection. I see no real good way to ship these. I want $15,000. For all of the drums and will include the stands that takes to mount the drums to ether the bass drums or the temp toms stands.
These appeared in a NDMD several years ago. The only issue is with the 26 in bass from as it has slight damage where the tom stand enters the bass. I have placed a stainless steal patch there. These are all original from the 1970’s and are not repos. I think the rarest is the stainless steel bongos. They are the only ones I have ever seen. There are four bass drums included. With this collection you can make just about any combination of Ludwig Stainless Steel drum sets ever contemplated. I want to sell all of this all at once and do not want to piece them out.
I live near Houston Texas. You can call me at

So. I am helping Denny sell this collection. I hope you will too. I am foregoing the commission and donating it to Denny and his wife. You can contact Denny or me about this. The pictures show that these were handled with kid gloves. Please remember that he does not want to ship. He's got his hands full with more important things. Denny says he does not want to part it out. I am advising him to part it out as sets or individual drums. They will all sell because these are highly sought after.
