Drum Collection

Sharing the recently discovered
Gene Krupa drum collection,
with the world.

Gene Krupa's Canister Throne


Gene Krupa's white marine pearl canister throne from the late 1950's to mid 1960's in the original fiber case. This canister throne and the bass drum can be seen best when Gene was using it during the Benny Goodman concert at Carnegie Hall in 1973, only months before Gene passed. There is a substance on the side of the canister throne that appears to be blood stains. Everything is as I found it. This is certainly a very rare collectible!

Each sale will be accompanied by a Certificate Of Authenticity, and all items sold will remain on as a source to show their provenance.
