Up for auction this Saturday is Stewart Copeland's original TAMA drum kit, veteran of the first two Police albums and hundreds of shows, and which can be heard on iconic hits such as “Roxanne", "Message in a Bottle" and "Walking on the Moon".
By far the most personally significant instrument of Copeland’s career, the drum kit was also the heart of his home studio before and after The Police, and appears in his numerous side projects as well as the soundtrack to Francis Ford Coppola’s cult 1983 film Rumble Fish.
The sale takes place at The Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square on Saturday 20th May 2017.
The current record for drums at auction is $2.1million for Ringo Starr’s early Ludwig kit in 2015.
