Re: What Year Yammy

It’s from the mid-to-late 2000s, around the time they were offering the Absolute Nouveau drums. They also made brass and copper snares with this badge, but those used Nouveau lugs. The steel and...

Re: Vibra-Fibing shell interiors

Neil apparently never had the snare vibrafibed. Also, it was not a 5x14 shell, but a 5.5x14. Here’s some info about it, including a quote where Neil said he was afraid of modifying it:

Re: Zildjian A "Hollow Block Stamp" (50s) 22"

I owned that exact cymbal for a while. Believe it or not, I hated it. The weight was ideal, and it did record pretty well. But in person, it had some weird overtones that made it very hard to play...

Re: Old K Alert...Old K Alert.. Man your stations man your stations...

I’ve played Kenny’s ride - it’s a New Stamp, actually. One of the best New Stamps, ever. The weight is 2448g.

Re: Old K Alert...Old K Alert.. Man your stations man your stations...

Looks more like a Type IVa or IVb to me. The records he mentioned were all done in 1956, which doesn’t line up with the stamp timeline, though.

Re: Intermediate Old K Istanbuls

These two 20" Intermediates from Matthias demonstrate how different they can be at thin vs. medium weights. I love the heavier one, but the thin one is very special:

Re: Intermediate Old K Istanbuls

Thanks, Joe! I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to play this one on gigs, so I’m still trying to figure it out. It records great, and sounds great out front - John Riley played it for a set at the...

Re: Mickey Roker and Clifford Jarvis and Old As

Mickey was definitely using As. There is a picture of him at a BN session in this era, and he’s clearly got a 20" A with rivets. Probably just a run of the mill 50s or even 60s A.

I’m not so sure...

Re: Found some 50's round badge

They are from the mid-60s. Very nice drums! Near the end of the Brooklyn era.

Re: Gretsch question

I know a drummer who was a Gretsch endorser in the 60s. He has a kit with a factory 12x16 bass drum.

Re: 1955 Ludwig Wfl Wmp Set - Guy Lombardo Set

This sounds like a great set - I love drums with that kind of history! What are the sizes? Are the heads original? Any chance you may post pictures?

Thanks!
