AK 18,12,14,4x14" Copper Bop Drum Set!!
En route to our NY store and will arrive in March. There are only three kits. One for Adrian himself, one for us and one for a private customer of his. Pics from Adrian are below, including one pic showing the 3 kits staged for shipping. Again, we will have the only kit for sale through a drum shop. NEW ORDERS WILL RUN OVER A YEAR, SO NEW ORDERS WILL NOT BE DELIVERABLE UNTIL MID 2019. So, this is the one to buy! This is an incredble masterpiece from Adrian Kirchler. Adrian has produced his own line of snare drums for many years and has collaborated with Craviotto for the wonderful Craviotto/AK limited editions, as well as with Ludwig for their 100th Anniversary Triumphal among others. His work with metal shells for snare drums is the finest in the world, and now he has created a complete bop kit with his superb copper shells. Standard bop sizes 8x12, 14x14, 14x18, 4x14 8 lug snare with Adrian's "old world craftsmanship" as part of the DNA in this set! This will arrive soon in our NY store! CAN'T WAIT to experience this in person! NOTE: We will NOT nest this kit for shipping. Each drum gets its own box.
As per Adrian, these are:
AK copper shells (.8mm) with double flanged, hollow & soldered back bearing edges (same as for the snare drums). Brushed patina finish, oil sealed and comes with oval embossed AK brass badges.
Hardware (tube lugs, 4mm hoops, T-rods and brackets) all made from solid brass.
