BJ Wilson, Procol Harum's great percussionist

Historic tools of his trade offered for sale on eBay October 2014


Offered to fans of BJ Wilson, by eBay auction: items from the Pearl Ludwig drum kit BJ used in the 1960s / early 70s
 

With The Paramounts In the Robin Copping film, The Procol Harum In concert with Procol Harum

These items (see below) have long been in the keeping of Gary Brooker: listen to his explanation of their history: click here

In subsequent conversations between GB and BtP it was decided to offer the various relics in seven consignments, so that more people get the chance to own something BJ played.

We're treating them more as items of memorabilia than as musical instruments.

Click the following links to see detailed description of the items depicted below, and to find your way to the various eBay pages:

kick drum and heads ; tom tom and case ; snare drum and stand ; sizzle cymbal, stand and soft case ; two hi-hats and stand ; thin crash ; variety of heads, mostly used.

Proceeds from this sale go equally to 'Beyond the Pale' and to GB's BJ Wilson Fund
Incidentally ... this is all we have ... we're not holding anything back for another round
