Re: Gretsch RB pawn shop find

Thank you for updating us. I would love to see the full set once you have the second floor tom back from re-wrapping to complete the set.

Re: Cocktail Drum Outfits

Irrespective of what name the outfit has, that is one spiffy drum set. The uniqueness of the drum set configuration and the rarity of the Mardi Gras wrap make for something very special. I hope that...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

Delorso, I like your interpretation of our differing opinions on this matter.

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

O-Lugs is correct. There are no hard feelings between us. We just have a different perspective on catalog-correct drum sets vs. drum sets ordered by music stores or individuals that do not appear in...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

I'm not going to argue with you. But, let's say that I have that Gold Sparkle Gretsch set that is not pictured in the catalog. Nor, is there anything in the catalog for that year stating that some...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

Thank goodness for the catalog-correct people because they ignore the drum sets not pictured in the catalogs. Consequently, there are some bargains to to be found for those of us who don't obsess...

Re: Cocktail Drum Outfits

That's a cute little cocktail outfit, Mike. It's kinda like a budget Slingerland copy.

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

Some of the very large drum sets pictured in catalogs were pieced together by the marketing people from drums that were in the warehouse just to show the possibilities of what someone could order.

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

Oh my God! Yet another music store ordered a group of drums that were not shown together in a catalog and given an outfit name. This should be at least a misdemeanor offense if not a felony. The...

Re: Cocktail Drum Outfits

Yep. The bracket is the key item to have. I figured at $99, that is much less to pay than if I found a vintage bracket. As it turned out, that Gibralter pedal is very nice. I can also attach any of...

Cocktail Drum Outfits

Let's show off our cocktail drum outfits--preferably those from pre-1970 vintage. I'll start by posting about my 1950's Gretsch outfit. The 24 x 14 cocktail drum is the right height for play from...

Re: Akron, ohio craigslist

Two grand SHIPPED for everything except the snare drum would not be a bad deal. Let the seller sell the snare drum separately to someone else who likes that type of Rogers snare drum.

Re: Ludwig super sensitive brass shell info needed

At least somebody here is not butt-hurt when a humorous comment about their beloved and sacred Ludwigs is offered. Thanks for having a sense of humor, Delorso. As an aside, boogered-up (even for...

Re: Ludwig super sensitive brass shell info needed

I don't know a lot about Ludwig lore. But, I think that I'll read all about that drum in this publication.

Re: Rogers swivo mounts: How much is too much?

Yep. It seems that when you need a "widget" for your drums, they are scarce and the prices are astronomical. But, when you don't need them, those "widgets" are plentiful at low prices. I suppose that...

Re: Rogers swivo mounts: How much is too much?

I ordered my new Rogers drum set in 1961 with the 8x12 tom, 22" ride cymbal, and matching 5x14 wood shell snare drum all mounted on the 14x20 bass drum. I loved the freedom of not dealing with a...

Re: Check this out WFL set on....

It was Salmon Satin Flame that was in bad shape--even for Satin Flame. The bass drum and mounted tom were marked inside as 1963 and the floor tom was marked as 1966. I would bet that they were...

Re: Rogers Set in Manalapan NJ

Many of us would drive a long round trip to get them. Many others of us would try to network with a friend near the seller to act as our agent. I've done the networking with great ease and great...

Re: Rogers Holiday

I played that set for nearly four years on countless load ins, set-ups, load outs for the one-nighters that we played (no clubs). I was never aware of any issues with the lugs. I never heard of the...

Re: Where have all the Leedys Gone

They were my favorites in the "old days" when I was gigging. I remember using the light brown-colored sticks with the red stripe near the butt end that were made in Japan before Herb began making...
