    Made by Ohio Art & amazing that the heads were intact.
    Also, see the 1956 ad for the drums. Wow..

    I am a drummer & played professionally for many...many years before becoming a freelance photog- the other creative job that makes no money, lol.. But I love my crafts & what I do.

    I found this in a local Kansas City drum shop ( now gone) called Kansas City Drumworks. They were good friends & built me a custom kit that I still play & love.
    They had this toy kit up for sale (this is 25 years ago) for $175 & a local restaurant/diner was about to buy it to hang on their walls.
    I thought- "No way. I'm saving this for history's sake" & I begged them to sell it to me & they said "It's yours" Yes!!
    That restaurant (Lucille's) burned to the ground a year later.
    Hmmmmm... So I really HAVE saved it!

    These types of drums barely survived Christmas morning. I;m happy to have this out & on top of my toy rocket & spaceship cabinet..
