Re: Snare collection for sale

What link? I don’t see it.

Re: Ludwig Downbeat

I sold the Downbeat kit, and miss it.
This one doesn’t appeal to me. But if it has that really classic Ludwig tone, it’s worth eight bills.
But man, that tom mount is u-g-l-y.

Re: New old school hardware from A & F

Plainly, a vintage hardware aficionado. I like the ideas, and his presentation.
But these are pretty pricey - which is not to say the value isn’t there - so I couldn’t see replacing my current...

Re: Slingerland snare project -- tips??

Somewhere in the thread is a comment that moisture would affect the ink. Or something.
That’s why I used the bees’ wax. So it’s not really sealed except for that.

Ludwig & Leedy 15” snare side hoop

I’m looking for a hoop for a 1950-54 Ludwig & Leedy “Concert Snare.”

I have a Slingerland hoop on it now, and it is cosmetically right. I’m browsing around to see if anyone has the real deal!

Re: Nickel over brass-polishing recipe?

If a magnet isn’t attracted to it, my bet is brass.

My answer ain’t definitive: Many others here have far more experience than I do!

Nickel over brass-polishing recipe?

I read recently about polishing the NOB hoops and lugs on the Leedy Concert snare project.
My efforts didn’t get terrific results: I cleaned them, and used metal polish and cleaner (“white...

Re: Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

From looking at the label, I don’t think that’s meant for human consumption.

Re: Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

That’s what I thought! And I tend to put in a lot, too, especially considering not much water/depth is needed.

Re: Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

When you talk about the Dawn soak, is it diluted with water? Or is it just Dawn?
I assume it’s a solution, but maybe it ain’t?
I did use Evaporust, and the rods came clean but dull. Getting them...

The stick chopper rim is bent a bit, but the hoop is also out of round.

Bent single flange hoop on Leedy&Ludwig

I’m spending some quality time on the Leedy & Ludwig 15*8 Concert snare project .

Re: Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

Sounds like Evaporust is planA!
And, yep, I would often just replace them. But these have a different profile than new ones. The ‘heads’ are a little taller.
So yes, waxing the threads sounds...

Re: Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

That sounds good - a quick review of online sources looks like the smallest bottle available is a quart.
True, it doesn’t cost a lot, but it’s more than I need.

Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

Hi - I’ll bet somewhere on this forum there is an long thread about things to use to soak lightly rusted, dirty tension rods.
Vinegar?
Coke (regular)?
Lemon juice? With salt?

I’ve picked up...
