Re: Slingerland Deluxe Student Sparkling Green Pearl

Congrats, that's a great looking drum! Love the color.
And it's always nice to hear when people are decent with each other. Hope you enjoy it!

Re: Ludwig Rocker

Great pic. And my guess is that before long your biggest problem is going to be keeping him away from them!

Re: "English Rogers" website - very interesting!

I've been going through this site more tonight. So much great stuff, especially for someone like me who knows very little about English Rogers. And the DC5 section is fantastic; love seeing all his...

Re: Cleveland Powertone COB date?

Such a cool kit. Typically I prefer smaller ones as well, but in this case I wouldn't change a thing. I love when floor toms have those extra knobby mounts for cymbals or whatever. I wish mine had...

Re: Cleveland Powertone COB date?

Thank you. I love stuff like this, the attention to detail they had when making these drums! Looking at it now, I believe both top and bottom hoops are not correct, so I guess I'll go on the hunt. I...

Re: Cleveland Powertone COB date?

Yeah, I can see the difference, thanks. That's a beautiful drum you've got there. And I'm sure it sounds as good as it looks.
My White Whale is that in a green sparkle to go with the rest of my...

Re: Cleveland Powertone COB date?

Good info, thanks! I'll take some pictures of the rims and upload tomorrow. And I agree, the drum sounds great.

Re: Cleveland Powertone COB date?

Right, of course. I meant Fullerton. Iíve heard that when they moved there they still had a surplus of the older tags they sometimes used.

Cleveland Powertone COB date?

I'm wondering if any of you can help me date this drum. As you can see, the tag says Cleveland and has a 4 digit serial, but I know that's not necessarily an accurate measure. The Clockface is...

Re: Do You Need an Extra Drum Throne?

It was $20.99 on Amazon, but only the red one was available for that price. The grey one looks a little better and was a lot more, but I’ll live. Probably won’t be using it when entertaining the...

Re: Do You Need an Extra Drum Throne?

Mine arrived the other day too. Unfortunately it's way too short for the height I'm comfortable sitting at behind the kit, but yes, it will have plenty of other uses. Adding some sort of cushioning...

Re: Oof, someone hit the lotto today...

Yeah, I didn't think about that, but you're probably right. Those drums were on "Offer Up", which I had never head of until the other day. Clearly a lot of people use it though, as the lady told me...

Re: Oof, someone hit the lotto today...

Definitely. It's not like that kit's some pristine museum piece. Never understood the appeal of single heads anyway.

Oof, someone hit the lotto today...

...and it wasn't me. Someone got all this for $50! When I saw the ad I was sure a zero was left off, but nope. I was second in line, apparently. It still stings. If it went to someone on here, that...

Re: Maybe Covington Will Come Back

Absolutely. But if that were a blindfold test I wouldn’t be able to identify with any confidence which drum was which. If I’m being totally honest, I could probably be convinced it was one drum with...

Re: Maybe Covington Will Come Back

I wasn't trying to knock Acro's. I have one from the late 60s and love it. I've used it over more "valuable" snares more times than I can count. I just meant that even with the abundance of them, I...

Re: Maybe Covington Will Come Back

In a different thread, there's a scan of the Ludwig catalogue where they introduced the Acrolite. 1962 or 63 I think. The list price was $65. Got me thinking about this thread again, re: the way...

Re: Is this an early 60's Ludwig Acrolite?

This is all great and really interesting information. Thanks so much to all of you.

Also, the original list price (per the catalogue) was $65 for one of these. You can STILL find them for that,...

Re: Is this an early 60's Ludwig Acrolite?

Thanks guys! I noticed the badge seemed oddly high up on the drum as well, but figured it was maybe the way the photo was taken. And very interesting about the cut badges and missing serial #s. I...

Is this an early 60's Ludwig Acrolite?

I know the pictures aren't great, but they're all I have to go on at the moment. I don't see a serial # on the badge, and the seller says there isn't one, which I believe suggests 1961-63. The...
