This is a Walberg and Auge Perfection 10 x 26 Sparkling Blue Pearl Wood Bass Drum 1968 Serial #RGB9-68.
Very good overall condition with minor laminate wear. We could not find very much info on the 26″ drum we believe it was originally made to pair with a drum set. This one is set up for marching with 2 I bolts but could easily be converted to add the Tom mounting set up. Very few of these were made. any additional information you drum gear heads can add is always appreciated.
There are sections of the laminate where it has small cracks in various places on the drum, if you feel the drum it feels pebbly but still sparkles well. The lug screws are all original hexagon type screws. One of the hoops is showing some separation between the layers of wood in the hoop.
Badge Type: Perfection.
Badge Condition: Excellent.
Material/Finish: Laminate over wood. Near the mounting hardware on the edge of the laminate there are a few points that have chipped.
Wood Shell Condition: Very light general wear. It is date stamped on the inside with RGB9-68.
Built to ‘Perfection’ by Robert George Bernard (RGB). He put RGB9-68 as the date built.
Heads: The heads are new.
Lugs: 10 Point 20 Lugs. All original long stem hex head lugs (amazing they are all still here).
Hoop Condition (Wear/Pitting/Flaking or Rust): Light general wear. Neither hoop has its laminate inlay.
Player Wear: Very light general wear (minor if any surface imperfections).
