Re: Concert Toms ID

What we hear could be anything being processed through any of many different sound modifiers and tweaked in a recording studio.

Re: Reason Why This Luxor Snare is So Expensive?

The Luxor is one of my all time favorite snare drums. Black Onyx is a great finish that is not real common. In a more common wrap, $150-$200 is on the high end for a Luxor in good condition. I would...

Re: As wife says sell it

Even if the only purpose of the one drum set in your possession is to look at it and remember playing it, keep it. If you are desperate for the money you can get by selling the drums, that might...

Re: Original WMP bought new at plant

I could see three drum sets made out of that conglomeration if the 20" drum is left as a bass drum. Of course, two of the drum sets would not have a snare drum unless you have other WMP snares.

"Who knows what it is worth; prices have gone down on these sets since Steve Maxwell wrote an article about them being in the $6000 price range some ten years ago".

Re: So a Drummer Walks Into a Restaurant...

Have you tried putting a HEAVY batter head on that floor tom conversion? That head and the Resonant head should be tensioned just a bit more than the wrinkled edges stage. That should produce a...

Re: Drum collection

Here are some better pictures of the Slingerland set. The red sparkle and blue sparkle wrap pieces are original. The white sparkle pieces had delaminated. I had to remove the damaged white pieces. I...

Re: Lone star

I'm no machinist. But, I think that an arm with a claw end from a donor snare stand could be used. A hole drilled through the flat bar could have a nut and bolt (maybe even a wing nut) holding it...

Re: Lone star

It looks to me that a large diameter snare drum (16") would fit on that stand if the flat sliding bar and the appropriate claw was there.

Re: Lone star

It looks as though the snare drum stand is missing the sliding flat bar with the third claw to hold the drum in place.

Re: John Bonham during first four minutes of Stairway To Heaven

Hey, Richie... You and I are certainly not alone with that opinion. For a long tune, Bye Bye Miss American Pie is ten times less boring.

Re: Blue vista ss

Seems like someone's skin isn't thin in this thread. It's obviously brittle
plastic. (I'm not referring to you, Jaghog. I think that you possess a mind that processes humor.)

Re: Blue vista ss

Apparently you really are humor-impaired. What a horrible way to go through life.
How about a cruise to China for you?

Hey, putz. it was your mama's Yugo. Yes... That's a juvenile insult. It is befitting for a slow-witted humor-impaired person such as you.

Re: Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste

Zigaboo is still going strong for a man of his age (born in 1948). Every so often, he will play a gig with the other surviving members of the Meters.

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

I made this Bop drum set from orphan drums. The 7x11 tom is Leedy from sometime before World War Two. The Floor tom is a 12x16 Leedy marching tenor drum from the 1950s. The bass drum is made from an...
