Re: OK, what do I have here?

As far as I know,Rockers were always 4 ply shells,so if that is true what you have there is

Re: Slingerland Set Found: Opinions Please

I agree that there is not any room left flipping the kit,but selling off the tom and a stand or two would make it a really good deal as a keeper.The price is very fair IMO,esp considering it is being...

Re: Bruno Conquerer Stainless Steel Kit

Very cool looking,both kits.
Interesting that there is no cut out on the lugs,but there appears to be no splay of the t rods,are there spacers on the screw bosses? Or do the lugs just make contact...

Re: What is a good price for this vintage Rogers set??

If that kit had all the boxes,original sales receipts and was essentially new old stock I would say he could get 4000.00 for it.

I would guess that most of us on here are player/collectors or have...

Re: PA Area - Possibly Interesting Drum Sale

Or maybe the doting owner/collector wanted to provide his snare drums with comfortable

Re: Japanese Star 1963-65 need help!

In 1977 the american companies were starting to feel the pressure of the Japanese foray into Pro and mid level drums.I remember seeing the Tama Superstars,Imperialstars,Yamaha 700 and 900 series,one...

Re: Upgrading My 60's Pyramid/Star Drum Kit

Here is my advice based on what you are trying to do.

I would leave the kit as is,because,

Re: Help me value this restored Rogers

Nice and unique looking players kit,I think the price is really good.

Looks a lot like Ludwigs Cherry red finish from the late 80's early 90's

Can only guess how those came to be,but my guess...

Re: Opinions on "70's Ludwigs" price

From pics looks like late 70's 6 ply to me,with a later tom holder possibly.
I don't recognize the BD spurs,but I am not an expert on this era Ludwigs.

The 6 ply drums can be very good sounding.I...

Re: What Ludwigs are these

As you get older you may come to appreciate the Luddy flat base stands.Vintage guys like them,you could probably get you 100 bux or close to it back by selling them.

Nice score,esp with the...

Re: New here, with old 1970 Ludwigs.

Experimenting with BD heads can get pricey for sure.

Couple of thoughts on Bowling ball finish.

There is a section in Rob Cook's Ludwig book on the BB finish.

Re: Olympic drums

I have a friend that has an OLY from that era,nice drums,those will probably clean up nicely,wrap looks good,and the Premier chrome is really good.

I would jump on them for 100.00 bucks.

Re: Walberg & Auge Owners

Just curious,it seems like when someone finds a kit or snare it usually is in the northeast,where and how did you buy a W and A set?at the factory?or did they have dealers in the northeast?

Re: No ID, 7 lug floor

Those lugs look alot like early Premier,and also a lot like lugs found on an Australian drum company called Dandy - Drouyn. You can examples on this and the partnering sites.

Re: 1965 Slingerland 6 lug Student Snare

I borrowed a wmp Slingy 6 lugger,it had a deep snare bed like that,was tuned med high,sounded great and was a great shuffle/nawlins drum.I think the slingy 6 lugs are very under rated.
