New Releases and News in the World of Gene Krupa...

Skinner Auctioneers & Appraisers will be auctioning a set of Gene Krupa's drums, which he had given to his church in the months before he passed away. The kit includes a 24" WMP bass, 20" WMP floor tom, 13" mounted tom in Centennial wrap, 14" silver sparkle snare, and Zildjian swish & hi-hat cymbals. The auction will start November 6. For more information, please visit their website.

WE ARE BACK! Due to glitches with my service provider, the website vanished last month. I am planning on doing some updates asap, as it's been a painfully long time since I've had time to devote to the site.


Please e-mail with any comments, suggestions, or contributions!
