Re: 6-lugged floor toms

No, the hoops are heat treated before finished. plenty strong.

Re: Removing the hinge pin at the heel plate on a Speed King foot board

That`s the way mine went, I have the retaining clip, but I think they all go in the same way. The pin is soft steel and you should be able to squeeze the head with needle nose pliers. If not, pointy...

Re: Removing the hinge pin at the heel plate on a Speed King foot board

It`s a tapered pin. it will only come out one way. I knocked mine out once with a hammer and awl. If you are sitting behind it facing the pedal on the BD, it came out the left side. there is a "Jesus...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

Pretty much why I give the benefit of the doubt first,..they end up not liking the truth or you for giving it to them. Both yours and his were before Premier purchased Dallas, which is where most if...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

It is appearing to be another all too common "drive by" .

I like to give the benefit of the doubt and be wrong rather the other way around. Trilok got a nice drum but this one has different hoops...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

No again.

I said I don`t see plies and one indication so it`s possible and a better picture would clear it up. The others seem more sure. Again a better pic would clear it up.

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

The OP has it in his hands. Thinks it may be. I see a blurry seam. I see blurry edge.

I wont and didn`t leave out the possibility of us being wrong, but also give credit for him being able to...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

No,...saying I don`t see plies in supplied photo`s and think otherwise. BIG difference in what you think I mean.

Re: Help with identifying a Leedy Bass drum.

The hole with the accessory mark is for a basic furniture lamp. they use the hardware to light the picture and keep the calfskin soft.

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

Here`s how Noble and Cooley do it. if you look close, you will see that same thick seam. They`re bending Beechwood.

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

When you join a solid piece, you use biscuits or tongue and groove. that seam in the first pic looks to be thick, unlike a ply. But it`s blurry and too far.

I see no plies. I`m also aware of the...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

The straight seam in the first pic is a good indication of yes, it is a solid shell. The second pic is too blurry to confirm it.
The badge puts it in the 60`s 70`s era too. Leedy was selling...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

Really can`t see enough of it to gage condition. Condition is directly related to pricing.
6 lug, 8 lug, or 10 ??

Re: My first 22" A - age?

Could it be that some came back from inspection and got hit on the lathe again then stamped again ?

Re: My first 22" A - age?

Since the first clue is they have to be separate, the second should be the artist can`t see it or he wouldn`t have done it.

Re: My first 22" A - age?

To me, it looks as if the artist laid the hammer on top of the die on the cymbal, then moved both hands when he hit it.

I didn`t mean two Trademarks struck, I meant one double struck like he hit it twice. Kinda like looking at it cross eyed.

Re: Buying a vintage kit

Any Premier or SONOR kit from that era will hold it`s own no matter how often you play them. But, you are in a area where you will find many choices like Trixon, Derry, Tromsa, any of the Dallas...
