Sib Hashian's stage-used silver sparkle Ludwig drum kit played on his first two tours with Boston, featuring a bass drum with kick pedal, snare drum, high tom, mid tom, and two floor toms, plus high hat cymbals, two ride cymbals, and a crash cymbal, all with their stands. The blue-and-olive Ludwig badges have serial numbers that date the drums to 1969-1970. The drums are fitted with white Remo Weather King drumheads, all of which show heavy wear from use. Includes their road cases, all of which are stenciled "Boston" or feature the Boston logo.
This dazzling, show-stopping drum kit was the only one used by Sib Hashian during his heyday with Boston, and it can be seen in numerous in-concert photographs from Boston’s tours, footage from their concerts, and the music videos for 'More Than a Feeling' and 'Don't Look Back.' He is also seen playing these drums on the inner gatefold of the Don't Look Back album sleeve. As the tour-used drum kit of a rock and roll icon, this is a truly spectacular piece of music history.
Also includes Sib Hashian's personally-owned and -used Paiste gong, measuring 36″ in diameter, with its metal frame measuring an overall 50″ x 76″. The reverse of the gong bears an "EATA" sticker from Hashian's time with Ernie and the Automatics—a large and impressive piece of Hashian's personal percussion equipment. Provenance: From the Sib Hashian Collection, and accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the Hashian family. Proceeds to benefit The Sib Hashian Scholarship
