Re: Powder Blue 70s Fibes Kit

Quick Update: I have been battling with tuning and tone on the 13" Tom ever since I got the kit. After re-cutting the bearing edges (twice) and still getting no "tone" I decided to check one last...

Interesting stuff for sale in NZ

Shipping probably prohibitive for those outside NZ(or inside come to think of it) but i thought I'd post the links if any one is looking for either of these;

A mint Ludwig butcher block 18x16...

Re: Rant: "Upgrading" Vintage Drums

Does putting Pearl Iso Feet on my Fibes floor tom qualify....? It didn't have any rubbers on the legs when I got the kit and it suffered accordingly.

Re: Powder Blue 70s Fibes Kit

Thanks guys. The "wrap" is actually self adhesive vinyl designed for the car enthusiast market. It conforms around curves etc. Anyway my budget got blown on the kit and shipping so I took a punt on...

Re: Powder Blue 70s Fibes Kit

Thanks, didn't notice a big difference really. But makes micing easier. Probably more noticeable in front of the kit.

Re: Yamaha Midnight Surf?

I'm tempted by those too - except I'm in Nelson and shipping will be a couple of hundred bucks...

The seller seems a bit difficult though? Can't be bothered giving the sizes?

Hope they go cheap...

Re: Restored Tiger Eye Pearl

I know! The great thing here is people can be totally clueless as to the vintage value of these kits. There seem to be a few here. A pre international premier went for 450 here in nelson a couple of...

Re: Wanted: Fibes Black Fivel Drums

True indeed! I figure the rest of the kit is probably out there somewhere in NZ. We're small, so I probably own at least 25% of the Fibes drums in the country!

Re: Fibes in Arkansas

Sweet deal! If you're keeping the snare, maybe check the glue that attaches the wrap to the shell (I'm assuming fibreglass?). If there is rust and it sounds a bit dull you might want to do re-wrap....

Re: 12 & 13" Fibes Toms, are these fivel finish?

Hmmm I think I'll leave them as is for the time being then. Maybe one day the rest of the kit will turn up. There can't be too many Fibes Kits here in NZ...

Got some new skins on the 12" and it...

Hi, first post, been trawling on here for a while though...
