My new b&b 14x14


This thing is by far the cleanest drum in my kit, and probably the most rare. Sounds incredible and came with original heads, not pictured yet. I put them away for when and if I sell.

Re: My new b&b 14x14


Looks like one of the last ones built with b&b lugs. Has the newer Keller shell as well. During the transition to Keller shells, the b&b lugs continued to be used for a short while, maybe 6 months or so.
Sweet drums, using the classic lugs and the newer shells with the tapered rings and sharp edges.
Does the rest of the kit have these shells?

Re: My new b&b 14x14


Not to my knowledge, I think i dated the rest of the kit to 1962. I dont believe it has the newer keller shells. But I'm in the process of finding the rest of the b&b lugs for the 16" and 12" toms. I will post photos when I open them up! Btw does the 14x14 I have pictured have peanut lugs? Or are they just the medium sized tom lugs?

Those are just the regular tom lugs. They didn't use the peanut lugs on floor toms.

Beautiful kit and that 14" is stunning. The interior looks super clean. Congrats. I love the look of two on the floor and the 14"/16" combo is a lot easier to play than a 16"/18". I like deep floor toms, but I'm too old and fat to reach an 18" accurately!
