Re: Rogers 1958 B & B Restoration

I affirm amosguy's opinion even more strongly regarding the value of reinforced B&B lugged kits. Unless you have the special early prototype lugs, ALL b&b's will eventually crack, it's just a matter...

Re: Rogers Drums Score

Attached is a shot of the kick from my late 50s rogers eagle badge spotlight kit. Not sharp edges at all. This kit is a very early example of the swivomatic era, so should be right at 1958.

Re: What Happened Here?

That is crazy, particularly if it also didn't affect the tom hoops as black label pointed out.

Did Slingerland dabble with different suppliers in this era? Early 70's does align with the sale of...

Re: Fake Drums

You would think the faker would at least put a grommet on the badge, wouldn't you?

Caveat Emptor.

Re: Rogers Question

Ouch. That Hurts. I have never bought or sold a kit with cracked wrap, so my guess just doesn't matter. I'm sure you can stabilize it.

Re: Ludwig Drums

If he is including the originals, $800 is a very fair price, assuming the wrap is solid.

Value for late 30s WFLs

Opportunity to pick up a set of late 30s early 40s president badged WFLs. Looks like 14x28 single tension, 7x14 snare, and 11 and 12 inch tucked toms. I think i saw the kit in the 39 catalog.

Re: Kent Alert in Deleware

Those are Dean's / (schmegeggie) - mentioned in a previous Kent snare thread. Certainly look like a nice deal.

Re: An Estate Sale Find

Wow, that's quite a find, and for peanuts. I'm surprised folks just don't do a google search to determine a reasonable value.

There is always a sweet spot of value that a seller ought to expect a...

Re: Price Check: What is reasonable value?

Given you have the matching snare, and all original, not modified, I would say $400-$500.

Re: Kent snare - decent price?

If I were looking for Kent, why not consider the whole thing?


Not mine, but fairly close by:

Re: Newer Ludwig help?

Man I hate this era's inner ply ink stamping! If you are going to stamp it, make it legible! Couldn't they afford some decent ink?

Other than that, a high quality kit to be sure. I vote Classic...

Re: Vintage Tama ID

Although the heads may say Tama, I've never ever seen a Tama rope drum before. I would imagine this drum/shell is of a different origin than Tama.
