Vintage Snare Drums- Curotto Collection: each

Author: Michael Curotto World's million dollar collection in book form for the first time Move over guitar collectors, it is time for the drummers. Now, one of the world's most valuable collections of vintage snare drums is presented in a beautiful, full-color gift book. This snare drum collector's market is heating up and it is becoming the next area of interest of music historians and instrument collectors. Highlights include: - The book features 85 of the rarest vintage snare drums from Curottos' collection of over 425. The drums are gold plated/engraved, silver plated/engraved and black engraved snare drums with the addition of a “Future Collectable” section. This is the premier collection in the world, presented in a book for the first time. - Every snare gets a complete historical description on all facets of its components and the back-story on its creation and where it was “found” before Curotto acquired it. - Brands covered include the most famous manufacturers including Ludwig, Slingerland, Gladstone, Leedy, Gretsch and Wurlitzer. - Foreword and text is edited by editor of Not-So-Modern-Drummer magazine, John Aldridge. - Photographed with the highest-quality digital camera, the images are gorgeous in detail and lighting. Great gift book.
