Re: Greatest Gretsch Drum Set For Sale

It's no longer that greatest. It's merely a 72 Challenger without the last of the street Hemi's, now try and find one, without the snare.

Death kiss !

Re: New Gretsch vintage

They look like Remo coated, and we all know heads can make or break the current sound of your kit.

Re: Rogers Holiday

You know, I once thought I could clean my Phonic kit complete like that in a couple days, I know better now. It totally revives them.

Re: Is This Premier Snare a Royal Ace or 2000

Pick it up and throw it. If it goes 50 feet it's Aluminum, if it goes 25 feet it's Brass.

Yes it will work, I don't see why not. You may smell it though.

Don't go under your car and scrape some, it'll have road grains in it.

Re: Old Sonor Performer pedal: how to disassemble?

No oil. Oil will drain out rather quickly. I use brake grease. I go to Autozone or NAPPA, get a little squeeze package of Brake bolt and caliper grease. Bearing grease comes in large 15 dollar cans,...

Re: Lug maintenance/restoration

Pay attention to the t-rod splay as you assemble. I put the hoop on(no head) with the lugs snug but not tightened. I move the hoop around and adjust until all the rods are plumb straight. Then I...

Re: Old Sonor Performer pedal: how to disassemble?

Put a dowel or some piece of wood on it, tap it out easy with hammer. Someone over tightened it.

Re: HAROLD "Doc" WEST... 1951 tom mounting

I don't see a BD tom mount. Everything is rim mounted, the cymbal, the cowbell, the spurs, the crutches, why would the tom not be ?

Re: HAROLD "Doc" WEST... 1951 tom mounting

I saw that too. He's got his foot on the HH and his position suggests he's playing it. That is the end of a stick just past his pinky like I hold mine a lot.

I tried to hold my 13 like that, not...

They could be the De-luxe line but that's the only other earlier line with drop style lugs.

The badge is post WWII.

I think they are a line of Edgware and Stratford when B&H was running four lines which would put them before 67.

It's not my fault you don't know what you're doing or talking about. But you deserve to be told at the least.

Re: 1975 Sonor Phonics 7 piece

It's hard to see a kit like that go to the butcher. I can only hope he leaves that 505 alone.
