Re: Ludwig Silver Sparkle Drums

I read somewhere that everything has its price. I don't think it was an accurate statement.

Re: Restoring Slingerland duco paint

It sure looks as if you devised a great method from here Gerard. Nice restoration and a beautiful drum.

Looks like one to try Martin281.

Re: 1966 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl

Nice kit! I notice from the photos that I must have used my throne backwards back then.

You needed to buy a Gretsch or Camco 18, 12, 14 just a few years earlier to keep up with a Road Runner.

I remember the Road Runners very well, except the one I was close up to was equipped with a...

Re: Repair Project

I would do a Henry Ford on it with black wrap for $150 or so including the adhesive. There's no question about it though, an offer of $500 would be better.

Re: Paul McCartney was right...

Congrats on the gig at 64. Does tie nicely to McCartney. Curious minds want to know: How old are the rest of the guys in the band? Are you actually old, or are you playing with your contemporaries?

Re: Beginner kit score

Great snare drum. Now you can sell the rest of the beginner's kit for $75. Just don't forget to tell them they'll need a snare drum.

Re: Look at This

What a bummer. What gets me about FedEx is that certain shops have insisted I open the boxes for their inspection or they wouldn't provide the insurance. When they've done that, I take them to UPS. I...

Re: Where NOS Kits End Up

I recall seeing it when Maxwell had it up on his web page, but it was even more interesting to find out where it ended up.

The other NOS stories are great too. Thanks for adding those in.

Re: Where NOS Kits End Up

Oops, denied. You have to go to Youtube to view it. Looks for Mentor's Project with Peter Erskine. Interestingly, he has them tuned very low.
