Re: Camco Newb And Loving Them

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I'm going to be pairing them up with a set of the new Rogers hardware. I think the swan-legged stands will look classy with the Camco set, and will go with the...

Re: Camco Newb And Loving Them

Hey Joe!

Pretty stoked about this one. Had some unused gear on consignment up at Bentley's and traded it in for this set.

Re: Camco Newb And Loving Them

I'll give it a try when the rubber band dries up.

I've now owned the set for exactly 24 hours! LoLoLoLo

Re: Camco Newb And Loving Them

Thank you!

I had to do the rubber band trick on the mounted tom muffler. When it dries up, I'm going to use your fishing line hack.

Re: Camco Newb And Loving Them

Interesting question, slingerfan, and I don't think I could answer it objectively. I will say, however, that these drums produce a familiar, "classic" vintage American drum tone.

Over the last...

Wow, sorry for the pic size. Not sure how to change that to something a little more screen friendly. Any help would be most appreciated.

Re: Camco experts!

Youíre correct, but my experience has been that it lasts years and is an easy enough re-fix. Next time, though, Iíll give the fishing line solution a try. Hadnít thought of that. Thanks!

Re: Camco experts!

A cut rubber band wrapped under the muffler head works well, too.

Re: Back In The Vintage Game... Slingy Style

Thanks again for all the info, slingerfan!

Interior is maple and definitely a solid shell.

Re: Back In The Vintage Game... Slingy Style

slingerfan, the muffler is a single pad with J-hook.

Thanks again for the info and education. I'm a Slinger-rookie, so all info I can learn is most appreciated.

Cheers,
Ryan

Those pics in the OP are from my first gig with them, which was just last Friday. The guys in the band loved the sound and vibe. So far I couldn't be happier. Traded in a modern...

Re: Back In The Vintage Game... Slingy Style

Yeah, it's a Radio King. Slingerland just wasn't calling them Radio Kings in that particular time frame. The Super Krupa snares had the clam shell throw while the Krupa model had the 3-point. Info...

Re: Back In The Vintage Game... Slingy Style

Thanks for the kind words, everybody!

The tea towel, in this case, is a leather chamois. I carry 4 or 5 of them in my gig bag. On that particular gig, one of them was used on the bass drum...

Re: Rims Mounts

In my experience, isolation mounts (specifically Gauger RIMS mounts) have made a significant difference in the resonance and sustain of every drum I've ever used them on. The difference is enough...

Re: Pearl Jupiter 5X14 COB

Nice drum!

I own a 5" and a 6.5", both COB.

Mike, you owe it to yourself to try these drums out. They are total sleepers and can still be had on the cheap.

I've got my 5" tricked out...
