Hi,
First of all, let me shortly introduce myself. I'm Wouter (34) from The Netherlands, crazy about drumming and I'm married to the best wife in the world that allows me to buy most of the drums that I like. I'm certainly not brand restricted, so that's why my drum attic is filled with English, Dutch, Japanese, American and German drums. Due to a new job and another new little drummer boy, I've decided to let some of my beloved round objects go. And stick to the ones I'm really connected to.

So, that's why I want to present these Tama concert toms to you.
I've been using them every now and then for projects and to extent my practice drums at home. They are on my "might-go"-list.
So, if some of you might be interested I'm sure we can arrange something. (Disclaimer: that's also me: I'd rather see my drums go to someone that loves it more than I do and can complete its project, than hitting the jackpot with them.)
But for now, I'd like to share them with you. And hope some of you can place them in the right time period. I'm certainly not a Tama expert.
Regards,
Wouter

The specs:
14 & 15 inch concert toms
serial numbers: 026273 & 026278
concerttom badge
royalstar lugs
Zola coating
Overall condition is ok / good. Wrap has some wear, but cleans up nicely. Some damage to the bottom end wrap.
Complete, but missing 1 tension rod.

And the pics:

Thanks, Wouter. But, ummm, do you have any pics of that "attic" of yours?

CB: Of course I have pictures of my attic.
But I not sure if a picture of bagged and cased drums will exite you ;-)
Since our second son was born, I had to leave my practise room to make some room.

But to give you some insight in the collection:

Drums:
Yamaha C200 Red Swirl (60s) 20/12/14 14sn
Premier B303 Blue Oyster (early 70s) 22/12/14/16

Snares:
Sonor D506 14 x 6.5 Ferromanganese
Camco 14 x 5 steel
Majestic 14 x 6.5 Alu concert snare
Majestic 14 x 6.5 Brass concert snare
Majestic 14 x 6.5 20mm beech concert snare
Conn C.G. 15 x 8 40s-50s snare
Premier 13.5 x 4.5 40s snare
Majestic 14 x 12 Brass marching snare (Dutch military veteran -> not me)
Royal 16 x 16 brass rope tension snare
Majestic 15 x 5.75 brass marching snare (As used by the Dutch Marine Drums and Fifes)

NOTE: Majestic is a Dutch brand that is nowadays affiliated with Mapex. In the past, they were famous (at least here) for their concert and marching percussion. Royal is also a Dutch brand, known for their craftmenship. They'd rather make no snares than cheap ones. Unfortunately, they quit in the 80s.

Cymbals:
Vintage Zildjian, Tosco, Paiste, pre-split Istanbul

Interesting drums ya got there. They are quite common in size and color wrap.
These are the same shells used for the Imperialstar cancert toms. Tama just
put on different lugs. I would put these shells at the late '70s to early '80s as
they have the smaller sound reinforcement rings at the top bearing edge. Not
worth all that much so no one is going to hit a jackpot on these.

Oh, I forgot to mention the odd thing. Your concert toms seem
to have the clip style mount which were mainly used on the
earlier concert toms with the thicker sound reinforcement rings.
Most people do not like the clip mounts as they are very restrictive
when it comes to adjusting position. Also, the proper stand mounts
are becoming harder to come by these days.

Thanks Chickenjoe for the expert opinion and placing the toms in the right era. They are indeed nice, and after a quick clean, they look way better than on the pics in this topic.

And I agree, these toms don't need to be priced as jackpot items. As stated in the starting post, I'd rather see them go to someone that can need them.
I'd like to catch the excessive number of 25 euro for the pair ;-) (excluding shipping costs). If anybody is be interested, let me know.
