I wasn't aware of this guy until recently when he listed a Supra under a different TM account and tried to make out he knew nothing about the drum. He was hoping some sucker like me might think it was brass. Of course he wouldn't confirm or deny because he didn't know anything about drums, he just found it in the garage. Fortunately I was alerted to his game. He withdrew the drum and relisted it the next day under his own acct with ALL the details as if nothing had happened.
So, the chances of that being one of Buddy Rich's snares seems pretty low. And the Zildjian hats he bought off TM last night will no doubt be relisted in a few months, complete with Ringo's signature and a long winded story about how Ringo gave them to him after an orgy with the Beatles one night in '67.

Here's the auction with the old 'I know nothing about drums routine'
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=415753242
and
re listed with after regaining his memory about drums...
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=427099335

and the badges of both drums together the oxidation spots look
identical. I'd say same drum.

yeah, it's bad enough when sellers are willfully economical in their descriptions but this sort of thing is just plain deceptive. It makes it hard to believe all the unverifiable stories about who owned the drums and how he got them etc.

So tell us some of your wampro stories Peter

Neither of the toms were Yamaha...just some rubbish I virtually gave away...certainly at a lower price than shipping. The Premier floor tom looked like a collander...which I expected to a degree because it had been converted to a bass drum..but I was a bit stunned to see clamp-on bass drum legs hadn't been used...more holes than necessary!

Hey Peter, I remember that kit I'm sorry to hear about that kit.
I stayed away from many of his drums because when asked relevant
questions about them he either A. flew off the handle or B. claimed to
not remember. Of course this thread would not be complete without
the non legendary 'Top Hat & Cane' fiasco...

Original listing
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=200548129

and the rather amazing drum forum thread

A little of the context is lost because the original Tm listing has been changed
and all the questions and answers have gone. Also all the pictures have expired
but I do have the photo shopped car crash somewhere. But basically, the listing stated
he had a Brand New never used Top Hat & Cane kit in original boxes and never
opened story went on to say his mom was a drummer in an all girl band in the 40's
and ordered them but when they arrived never opened them. No pics except 2
taken from a prominent drum dealers web site. Claimed he couldn't take pics because
he didn't want to open the boxes.

Of course as soon as any questions get asked that are deemed too probing, things
get nasty and it gets mysteriously sold...

I missed that one, I'm sure he's listed it before though. There's quite
a difference in the photos between the two auctions. The buddy
drum is nicely clear cut out on a black background whereas the
supra auction is fairly amateur. I don't think anyone would actually be
able to go and view that drum...
