    Wow, that is what I call research.

    Thank you Henrik. That nails it down.
    So this drum was made between 1952 and 1962.
    Nevertheless it is a nice drum with a traditional design.

    Indeed. Will it be possible to reach an agreement with the seller John?

    Nope :(

    One of those things really, you believe what people say and take it on face value, especially seeing as he was an "advanced" collector. Oh well, at least it will look nice in the "room" :)

    I did write to Sonar, and they said that the label was 49-50ish, so it's only a couple of years out. A few years ago, when we didn't have internet, you'd never be able to find this sort of thing out would you? Just how did we manage to get along............oh wait, we got ripped off by fat rich dealers :)

    Yes indeed John. The internet has been a blessing and a curse at the same time. It has enabled people to find information easily and also to share their own research but it has also enabled those with a different agenda to abuse it.

    I'm sorry to hear that there is no way of returning the drum...

    Hi John,

    I was thinking more about the trolls, dealer shills and sockpuppet account holders on other forums who spread misinformation in order to divert from verifiable facts that might be bad for business.

    You "found" it? Did you break into someone's house to take those pictures? ;)

    Okay, only one picture of the complete drum but it appears to be a textbook DJ Landsknechtstrommel. Correct construction, correct number of black flames, correct number of holes in the tension rings and as an added bonus, that company didn't make these after 1945, certainly not as "Hess" anyway.
