Re: Age

I would regard anything 1989 and older as vintage. Just my opinion.

Like a mid 1980s Yamaha Steve Gadd-era kit. That wold be sweet and vintage.

Re: Love selling vintage drums, hate packing to ship

Local UPS office has charged over $500 to box and ship a 4 piece kit. An expensive hassle I'll never go through again.

Re: Hal Blaine's kit for sale

Yeah, hard to justify this purchase/price for something you probably wouldn't play. Does Bennett own them or is he selling for the estate?

Though we all know Blaine, the average Joe doesn't. Not...

Re: Least HOF Worthy Bands/Artists

Wow, many that I totally disagree with. Namely Ronstadt, Joni, Nyro, Jackson Browne (pioneer of the canyon rock...Eagles etc).

I played the blue and white pearl ltd editions (I think they came out 2013?)? they were Chinese but sounded really good.

Re: Least HOF Worthy Bands/Artists

Yeah Bon Jovi isn't rock. They were lumped in with the hair band genre when they first were on the scene.

Queen is odd. I love a lot of their music. It seems like it was weirdly out of tune and...

Least HOF Worthy Bands/Artists

Just a random question to you on a ho-hum day: any bands or singers that made in the Rock Hall of Fame that you feel don't deserve to be there?

Though I like The Cars, the music is fun, but it's...

Re: Original or rewrap??

Interesting though, I've never seen a date stamp that legible. Especially being that old.

Re: RIP Hal Blaine

Nice story. Thanks for sharing. BTW I love your book. It was the first one I purchase when finally, FINALLY taking up drumming at the ripe age of 43. :)

Re: Hal Blaine!

I recall as a kid I'd read the writing credits, liner notes, etc on everything and would see Hal's name and think "man, this dude gets around". I think I first saw his name on a Partridge Family LP.

Re: Leedy snare drum....

I used to have one of same vintage. For the life of me it took days to see that "Leedy" inscription on the rim. Cool drum but I traded it in. Just couldn't keep it in tune. 100 years old almost ...

Re: Carl Palmer

Does anyone know the kit he used to record that first Asia album? I simply love that sound. My favorite along with Phil Ehart on Kansas' Leftoverture.

Re: Ludwig Club Date ? 100.00?

Ha, I have the same kit and also bought a 16" floor tom knowing the lugs were different but I sold it as the wraps were just way off and didn't match. Nice!!!!

Re: Camco sighting "Fanny" circa 1972

Pre-Heart so that's cool. For as much as I think I know music in my 50+ years I just learned of Fanny a few years ago. You're never too old to discover old/new music!

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom Drum Kit - 1985 Cherry Wood - $1,200

I'd love this kit if I hadn't sworn off buying any more. This is Steve Gadd-ish era no?

Re: 1976 Ludwig Big Beat shells

Also, if you are the original owner of these I would certainly state this in the ad. A nice selling point and buyer would love knowing they weren't in the hands of many others. Nice kit!

Re: Slingerland White Satin Flame

Yes, but don't be discouraged. Bubbles will get off whatever it reasonably can. Don't expect brand new bright looking drums. This wrap is finicky.

Re: Why Do Ludwig Drums Sound So Good

I'd take an old beat up Ludwig kit from the 60s over anything new and expensive today. They made musical history and are ingrained in every great song there was.
