The time has sadly come to sell my beautiful drum kit, I have now owned this kit for about 2 and a half years and since purchase, due to working full time and being to scared to cause any damage, I have only played it two or three times, the rest of the time it has been stored in cases unused.
This kit has an amazing history, it was originally custom ordered and designed for the drummer of British rock band, Uriah Heep (Russell Gilbrook), and was used and recorded on a handful of their albums. After purchasing the kit Russell then decided to splash out and have all the lugs plated in 24kt gold, and match them with gold Mapex Powerhoops.
The shell kit is made up of three drums, all custom sizes, being;
24" x 16" virgin kick drum, inc fitted kickport.
16" x 15" Floor tom w/ legs.
12" x 10" High Tom.
Considering the age and usage of the kit, it is in very good condition, some tom rash on the bass drum and pictured and slight scuffs here and there but nothing noticeable, remember this was used in both a live and studio settings and has been truly loved!
All the drum heads are in good condition and still have lots of life left in them.
Included in the sale are soft cases for each drum and the tom legs for the floor tom. No other hardware or mounts are included.
I'm very sad to see the kit go as it is truly beautiful and has an amazing story, but unfortunately a house deposit is more important (well the other half seems to think so!)
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have, I also have email conversations with Russell Gilbrook himself to prove the authenticity.
Thanks for looking!
