Comments: This drum belonged to the late Danish drummer Ken Gudman (Oct. 5th. 1947 - sept. 17th. 2003). His widow Helle Fastrup donated very kindly the drum to me in may 2008. Ken never actually played this snare with his Blue Vistalite kit. A handwritten letter from Helle authenticate the original ownership. I have decided not to clean the drum but keep it in the condition it was received. The rest of Ken Gudmans Blue Vistalite kit is in the hand of The Danish Rock Museum. Ken played a major role in the danish music scene and played on 147 records and uncountable amounts of concerts in his career.
