Re: Rogers fans rejoice! It's a Holiday holiday!

That seems like a good plan to me.
The snare drum alone is a great find.

Re: Slingerland/Tama

What year is the Slingy set? Does it look to be "born together"? If the Tama is $400 and the Slingerland is $800, that might be a fair price depending on the age and condition.

Re: Slingerland/Tama

Wait! You only have one drum set? From reading your many posts, I have gotten the impression that you must have several drum sets that you keep buying/selling/trading/whatever. My opinion is that the...

Re: Tom Placement

In my sixty plus years of owning giggable drum sets, I have never owned a drum set with a crappy tom mount--and I have owned many drum sets. I am also not one of those drummers who think nothing...

Re: Tom Placement

People who have read my posts over many years already know that I'm against putting a "MOUNTED" tom on a snare drum stand. A great deal of soul-searching has led me to post the basis for this...

Re: My first vintage set

Beam us up, Scotty. The Satin Flame material was used in the transporter room of the Star Trek television series. The special effects for this series were spectacularly low tech.

Re: Attn. Rogers Fans - 6-sided Drum Key?!?

Walberg & Auge drums had six-sided drum tension rods for many years. In addition to an original W&A drum key, I have also bought a few new production clock keys that fit the drum T-rod heads. A 5/16...

Re: Tom Placement

There is almost always enough room to slide a piece of very thin paper under the badge, and nudge the badge with a fingernail to rotate 180 degrees with paper always staying between the metal badge...

Re: Tom Placement

What's to stop you from turning the tom over so that the current batter side becomes the resonant side? It is easy to rotate the badge to face in the proper orientation. Is an internal tone control...

Re: My first vintage set

That's a great looking set of Slingies complete with some good cymbals. Your patience has handsomely rewarded you. Tou said in an earlier post that there was another drum in mix. What is it?

Re: Different Gretsch round badge models?

The prices of those K Zildjians are unbelievably low even for 1961.

Re: Different Gretsch round badge models?

Let me give you another compliment. Thank you for knowing that you could work like hell to remove the paint, sand down the shells, stain and clear coat the shells. It would be a lot of work with the...

Re: Different Gretsch round badge models?

"I wanted to know if I had a Name Band (with the optional 20") or a standard Bop kit. It just looks like 6 of one or 1/2 dozen of another". That is one of the most intelligent statements I have read...

Re: Slingerland Blue Flame

Please post a "before" picture of the drums just as they are when you bought them. Your spiffing up will be more dramatic that way.

If you are anywhere near the Dallas area, there is a long-standing local chain of three stores named Elliott's Hardware. I would bet that they have what you need.

I figured that you'd be interested, Mike. I plan to use a beater with this pedal that will smack the bottom had of the drum with the full face of the beater. This cool thing is on a pivot. The first...

Re: Rogers Covington

Here's a fairly decent shot of the set. The room is too small to take better pictures. When it finally stops raining, I'll try to get some out doors pictures.
