After  6.5 decades of creating his massive historic rope drum collection of approximately 300 drums, The Yankee Drummer, Jim Smith has decided that it is time to find new homes where these treasures and relics will continue to be appreciated.  
The collection contains drums from the 1300's through mid 1900's with a concentration of civil war instruments, some of which have been documented to historic battles in American history.
This web site will be updated frequently with photos and descriptions of the collection as the drums are cataloged and inventoried.  
Since all of these instruments are unique, we have done our best to estimate a reasonable market value which is negotiable and will help the instruments find new homes with appreciative owners.
Please feel free to email Jim with questions or interest in owning part of this treasure :  [email protected]
