Re: Price shaming

I won't even mention the prices I would charge in order to get me to part with my drums because it would likely cause "outrage"....lol.

I have never really known what the "fair market value" is...

Re: $475 to ship a drum set???

Yeah, it's ridiculous. And if you sell on eBay, they also gouge you...and PayPal takes a snip, too. It's no wonder that the actual value of an object has to be overblown these days. Otherwise, it...

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Since there were no collectors when these so-called "running changes" were in effect, it doesn't really matter to collectors, now. Most collectors look for the most ideal and pristine examples they...

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Well, that's you, I guess, leedy.

Leo Fender, Bill Ludwig, Bud Slingerland...et al....were businessmen looking to make a profit. None of the nitpicking that collectors do, now, has much to do with...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Leave it to Remo to take this on. They are still the greatest drumhead company in existence, in my opinion. Good for them!

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

OOOhh okay. Thanks...I got it now. I thought they were going to reissue the older configurations...The one I have always known as the Telstar was the one with the conical shells -not the egg shaped...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

I'm confused. I saw that website and was like, WHAAAAT? Where are the Speedfires and Telstars? I couldn't care less about the drums that are on that website. Wow. Those look like junk. So refresh me...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

I'd like to see some of these kits onstage. I think they are visually stunning. I have been SO curious to try a Trixon Speedfire or a Telstar kit....but, again, they are extremely rare in ANY kind of...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Heh...I dunno....I love the odd Trixon concept drums....I love modern art and those drums are what I see as utilitarian modern art. They can be viewed as a sculpture or played as an instrument. Okay...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Yes...well, exactly....These types of drums aren't for people who gig one nighters, They are as much oddities, now, as they were back then. It's very unlikely that you will ever see a set of...

Re: Vintage Drums Comparison

I agree that it's different for a heavier hitter. I haven't even put a dimple on a head in decades. Whenever I find a vintage and well-used WeatherMaster head, I opt for them. As long as they aren't...

Re: Vintage Drums Comparison

Disagree about vintage drums favoring lower tension. In my observation, they favor HIGHER tension -due to the fact that rounder edges provide more surface area for the mylar to come in contact...

Re: Prices

How about the $85K Gladstone snare drum?

My prediction is that the really weird drum sets will soon be the fancy -the ones that never caught on as gigging drummers' drums. They will be more like...

Re: Ludwig Tom

Nice job on keeping the original drums together. You can configure them any way you prefer, but, in years to come, some future collector will appreciate the completeness of a genuine, matched,...

Re: Very Thin Old Avedis

When I was in college, the music department had a storeroom full of old stuff that no one used. There was an old K and an old A. The old K was kinda thick and sounded clangy and I didn't like it. But...

Re: my Christmas gift to myself

I agree with wflkurt. I believe these were Ludwig's best shells...the wrap was no longer tucked into the scarf joint...no heavy shellac/sealer....A year or two after these, some of the later shells...

Re: Rogers Badge with line??

My guess would be less valuable. But to a Rogers collector, they probably have some kind of historical/evolutionary significance that might be needed for some to complete a collection...so ya never...

Re: Ludwig Concert

I don't know what it was about concert toms back in the day...I loved the look of them. I loved Carl Palmer's stainless steel kit and a lot (if not most) of the popular drummers of that era were...
