Meet Our Consignor: David Frangioni

David Frangioni ~ Frangioni Media
March 2019: Our upcoming “All Access – The David Frangioni Collection Auction” event will feature an impressive array of historic rock and audio memorabilia including drums and drum kits, audio equipment, and more, from award-winning audio engineer, author, and collector David Frangioni.

Frangioni amassed his collection through years of professional drumming and audio expertise. He is an award-winning veteran of the music industry, with expertise ranging from being a drummer and producer himself, to an audio consultant, technologist, integrator, and recording engineer. 

After beginning his career working with Aerosmith for 13 years, Frangioni received many gold and platinum albums as technical consultant, engineer, and/or programmer, who later worked with industry icons including the Stones, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Sting, Bryan Adams, Journey, Styx, Phil Collins, Shakira, Rascal Flatts, Ozzy Osbourne, and Chick Corea.

The majority of his unmatched collection of historic drum kits, equipment, and memorabilia, which have been either acquired at auction or through his music industry relationships, was on display in his book “Crash: The World’s Greatest Drum Kits from Appice to Peart to Van Halen.”  The collection to be auctioned is a fascinating mixture of historic drum kits, snare drums, recording studio used equipment, legendary road cases, and an impressive offering of traditional music memorabilia. Frangioni is a top authority on everything drums, and his private collection is second-to-none. Whether you’re a drum enthusiast, gear head, or straight-up collector, this auction will offer something for everyone.

Complete, historic drum kits are definitely one the highlights of the auction and includes kits from legendary drummers such as Carl Palmer, Carmine Appice, Eric Singer, Terry Bozzio, Gregg Bissonette, and Mike Portnoy. There is an impressive collection of Carl Palmer, Asia and ELP road cases, gear and equipment, as well vintage road cases that belonged to Cozy Powell from his Black Sabbath years. Dozens of collectible snare drums and an exciting offering of vintage recording studio equipment will also be up for auction.

The exclamation point to this auction will come in the form of a broad selection of A-level music memorabilia related to KISS, ELP, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, RUSH, AC/DC, Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath & Ozzy Osbourne, U2, Van Halen, Metallica, Motley Crue, and many others.

The All Access - David Frangioni Collection Auction begins with a preview of the entire catalog on March 9, 2019, and is open worldwide from March 16 to March 24, 2019 for bidding.
