    Janis Joplin - Kozmic Blues Band Tour Used Drum Set (1960s). An early 1960's Slingerland Drum Kit, with gold glitter wraps, used by drummer Roy Markowitz in the studio and on tour with several Rock & Roll legends. Includes: snare, two rack toms, one floor tom, kick drum, hi-hat, two ride/crash cymbals, throne, accompanying hardware, and various sticks. All heads Remo, except the floor tom, which features a Ludwig head.

    According to the accompanying provenance: "This set bought in the early 1960s was popular with jazz and R&B drummers. I used it from the period beginning with my work with Janis Joplin throughout my recording career. It was used with such artists as Jeff Beck, Todd Rundgren, Dusty Springfield, Peter Allen, Vicki Sue Robinson, Cleo Laine, Cy Coleman, Petula Clark and Don McLean. Our Albert Hall concert was a huge success. We then moved on to Amsterdam to play at the famed Concertgebouw. All throughout this time I used my early 1960's Slingerland set which I chose to record with Don McLean on the "American Pie" album." Comes with LOA from Ray Markowitz.
