drumsandme

We've just acquired a large (!) group of drums that were made by the now-closed Taos Drum Company many years ago.

They range in price from $400 to $525. We have only 3 of the tall ones, but five of the lower, wider ones, which are suitable for use as coffee tables with a plate of tempered glass.

These two are in Santa Fe and the tall one is 34 inches high, 17 inches across and $400. The other is 17 inches high and roughly 29 inches across $480.

We have six more drums in Tucson if you'd like to call there for other sizes.
