have been authorize to offer for sale the above drum kit used
by the great late Buddy Rich . This drum set was purchased
in 1978 by Ray Cooper who sadly past away last year at the
age of 92. When I last spoke to Ray he told be he was planning
on moving back to the UK from his home in Ocala, Florida.
unfortunately he past away before he could make his return.
His wife Valerie however late last year was able to do this
and she brought with her Rays drum set and 170 plus big band
arrangement including all parts written for a 16 piece orchestra.
is a letter of authenticity from the Professional Drum Shop,
Hollywood who stored this Drum set for Buddy.
