Re: Is Anyone Still Using This Forum?

I still check in every few days. I've been visiting the site since about 2013 or 2014. Lots of great info stored here, but so much has been talked to death, and some of the members who do still...

Re: Playing (preying) on the nostalgia factor........

Wow, I am SO envious of both of the finds posted in here. That blue sparkle radio king set is the tops. Looks like pretty new heads on the snare too. 10/10 pick up.

The porto pak outfit is...

Re: slingerland added badges to toms in... 1965? What about tone controls?...

Not to be conflictive; I have a 8x12 tom with a chicago badge that is stamped 1962. I suspect that simply when the shell was made, but with that said the bass has a niles no serial badge; also...

Re: Slingerland Fade

wonderful, wonderful set of drums. Of all the vintage drums I lust for and admire, the top of my list has always been green sparkle slingerlands, and of course radio kings. I am sure those drums...

Re: Slingerland COB 2 to 1 snare

Sweet catch. Haven't seen one that late in factory production before, very cool. You can find replacement hoops at . I don't think they are brass though, but are the correct...

Re: Future Vintage?

My reasoning is that Mapex used walnut for the majority of their top of the line drums/products. Not many other brands did this across the board with any tier of their product lines. The mapex orion...

Re: Future Vintage?

I have had these thoughts myself.
Personally I suspect that the high quality Mapex stuff (saturn, orion, some black panther snares) will be valuable one day. The build quality on that is...

Re: Radio King white paint interior?

That's a beautiful drum you have, thejohnlec!

I'm sending you a pm on that 3 pt strainer on that drum. That extension lever is unoriginal and is from the 60s - (Or it's a replacement of some...

Re: Cool Slingerland Kit

I think often people mistake prices like his for being off from a supposed 'reasonable collectors value.' The rogers mount is original - it was installed by the dealer (according to him, but I...

Re: Slingerland Chicago snare

Something seems kind of odd about this... Maybe I'm just geting confused. I thought that student model radio kings came only in certain arrangements. One being single flange hoops with a 3 point...

Re: Slingerland vs. Ludwig

I too have always felt that slingerland and mapex are similar companies. Top notch drums all around. even their low end, entry level stuff is high quality. They suffer from lack of brand recognition....

Re: Musketeer? Is it another stencil or made by Gretsch/Kent?

Muskateer was a brand under the Kent drums company. I don't know much but I believe they're equivalent to Kent quality (which was not always consistent). That finish looks really nice though, and i...
