Re: Vintage Gretsch? What have I brought home?

16" Floor tom:

Sometime in the past, somebody spray painted "U.S." on it. Maybe it was something like a USO drum?
Very clear date stamp inside: JUL-7-1953
Same badge issue as 13" tom.
Also...

Re: Vintage Gretsch? What have I brought home?

13" tom:


Substantial pitting.
There is a date stamp inside, but I can't make out the last digit (195?).
Badge corresponds to the 1960s, based on Vintage Drum Guide's web site. I'm not...

Re: Vintage Gretsch? What have I brought home?

Bass drum:

No tom mount. Interior is spray painted silver. From my reading that could mean the bass is a Jasper shell. I did not see a date stamp anywhere.

Vintage Gretsch? What have I brought home?

I did some horse trading and brought home this 1950s Gretsch set. I'll be honest, I don't know anything about Gretsch at all, but the set sounded cool and it was a fair trade to both.

I'd like to...

Re: Quarantine Jellybean

Gotcha, thanks! So basically the seller grabbed the wrong bag of lugs :).

Re: Quarantine Jellybean

I was actually planning on using the 14" purple as my "floor tom" but playing 1 up, 2 down will be cool, too. There's a 16" royal blue on Reverb with "make offer"...

Re: Quarantine Jellybean

I'm guessing the lugs and t-rods are from a different drum. When I bought it from the seller, it was advertised without them. During negotiations, the seller offered them to me as well, so I bought...

Re: Quarantine Jellybean

Very interesting. The seller wasn't sure.

The seller included some VERY CLEAN lugs and T-rods. Unfortunately my local CG is closed completely, so I have to wait for heads to be shipped. I was...

Re: Slingerland Black Diamond Pearl

Leedybdp and o-lugs, I generally agree with both of you. But the consolette does have limitations, and as I've gotten older, my body also has limitations... if I play on a consolette now, for a...

Re: Quarantine Jellybean

Here are the toms (early 70s, Niles badges, re-rings.) And oh yes, my "helper". He's good for dusting the interior, and for chasing packing material. He matches the color of the bass.

Now I...

Quarantine Jellybean

So, the past few months of work-from-home and only going out for necessary shopping is starting to make me antsy. I have several individual Slingerland drums I've bought on a whim (future projects I...

Re: Slingerland Black Diamond Pearl

Johnnyringo, I have a 63 Slingerland, same finish, and it also has the consolette. For whatever it's worth, I was never able to get the ride tom where I wanted it. Like you've found out, the design...

Re: Why Play Vintage?

Mark, this is a very good point. My Slingerland kit is not museum quality, so I have it tricked out with Gauger RIMS mount on the ride tom and DW stands/pedal. My Ludwig kit is near museum quality,...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

That's the same model I have too. Good snare sound, easy to tune.

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

:) Certainly an option... my Acrolite has less metal sound!

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

Good point, and worth trying on the floor tom. Thanks!

But to go back to the snare problem, it has a godawful metal overtone, like beating a lawnmower blade with a hammer. The snare is a 6.5x14,...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

The edges are original, and it has the warm, fat sound. When I say the Slingerland has a long sustain, it's relative of course. It's not as long as the DW's sustain (I love the Santana comparison...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

My son uses those on his kit, but they're not adjustable. If I use my 63 Slingerland as an example: the 16" has a very long sustain. I've dialed in the tone control to barely touch... not enough to...

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

Thanks everybody! I'll probably try the clip-on muffler first. I looked at a couple of the gel products suggested, but I can't get the " kids snot" image out of my head ;) .

Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

That's got to be one of the better lines I've heard in a while!

Although to be serious, the resale for DW Performance series isn't good in my area. I'm not sure adding a muffler would harm the...

Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

This is probably off-topic but I'd like to get some feedback please.

I recently bought a DW Performance drum kit as part of a trade. It's my first DW, although I've owned several older PDPs. In...

Re: It's Ludwig Time Again

O-lugs, I think you're right. If I remember correctly, both the Hollywood and Big Beat came in 12-13-16-22 configs and it was the choice of hardware that differentiated them. This kit has the flat...

Re: Blended Family

Here ya go... the main kit is 1963, 13/16/22. 1970s vintage Zildjians. The 12" tom is an orphan from a 1960 kit, and I've since sold it. Hardware is mostly DW, and the snare is a 6.5x14 DW...
