Re: 70s-era Zildjian 21 inch ride. Rock Ride?

Hi Zen - I just remeasured the bell on my 21" A and it is in fact a 5.5 inch bell. It definitely stands quite high - it is quite noticeable.

Re: This is the Display Your MIJ Drums Thread

Hi - here's some pics of my Star kit in a Blue Ripple wrap which over the years turned into a Brown Ripple Wrap. It's the thicker no re-rings shells painted black on the inside.

Re: Restoring a PAINTED Ludwig Super Classic set

I tried lacquer based thinners this morning and it works like a charm in removing the spray paint. It does not seem to do any damage to the the wrap either!
