Original Neil Peart Tama Artstar kit up for auction
Neil's red, Tama Artstar prototype kit used from 1982 - 1985 on three albums and three tours is up for auction (again).
Here's a history of the owners of the kit since Peart:
Jack Hess won it as part of a Neil Peart drumset giveaway in 1987 and stored it in his basement until August 1999. He sold it on eBay for $26,100.
The second owner was Scott Jemm, who displayed them until 2002. He sold them on eBay for $14,621.12.
Robert Telleria, author of Rush: Merely Players, helped the new owner restore the drums and eventually bought the kit himself.
Now the drums are being auctioned on Julien's Live.
