1. About Maxwell Private Auctions

Maxwell Private Auctions is the newest addition to our family of services, and it is an extension of something that we have essentially been doing for over 15 years. We have always been involved in authenticating, buying and selling extremely rare vintage items and items owned by prominent artists. We have long-standing relationships with some of the most prominent collectors of rare vintage and artist-owned instruments, and, all transactions are handled by myself personally. Confidentiality for both buyers and sellers is also of utmost importance to us, so buyers and sellers deal directly with me.

Our experience and reputation has resulted in our ability to achieve the highest prices for fine collectible pieces. Contact me at vintagedrums@aol.com or by text at 630-865-6849 for more details. If you have items you would like us to consider, please email details to me along with photographs and we'll be pleased to review them.

Steve.

Our experience:
In addition to operating our drum shops, I have:

- Been the curator of the world’s finest private collection of rare and celebrity owned drums in the world.

- Authenticated and brokered the sale of instruments owned by such
famous drummers as Buddy Rich, Joe Morello, Elvin Jones, Mel Lewis, Tony Williams,
Sonny Greer, Don Lamond, Cozy Cole, Papa Jo Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Gene Krupa, Peter Erskine, Stan Levey, Dave Tough, Louie Bellson, Jake Hanna, Earl Palmer, Billy Gladstone and more.

- Sold more of the rarest drums and drum sets than anyone in the world. Items such as: the finest known Ludwig Top Hat and Cane drum set; the finest known and unique example of Leedy’s Autograph of the Stars set; four of the twelve known examples of ’50s era Gretsch cadillac nitron green “Birdland” drum sets; more Gretsch round badge era 12-14-18 drum sets than any dealer worldwide; twelve of the rare Billy Gladstone snares (of which only 25 exist); and one of the only two complete Billy Gladstone drum sets.

Our worldwide clientele consists of serious players, collectors, investors and anyone else who loves the finest examples of rare vintage drums. Our expertise runs deep and is rooted in the superb instruments crafted by US manufacturers from the 1920s through the 1970s.
