Re: Why Play Vintage?

For me it's the sound. I find vintage drums of nearly every kind to be warmer in tone. They don't always project as well, sometimes they are more resonant, sometimes less, but the character of the...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

For me the problem with the swivomatic hardware is that it just did not hold up well. The drums were used when I bought them, I guess they were 5-7 years old, by then they would not hold position...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

My Rogers were about 1972 small "R" with re-rings and the internal shell was coated with some kind of grey faux stone finish paint and came with a metal dynasonic snare which I never liked, I've...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

Someone is wrong about something because these are 3 ply, not 5, and not 7. Anyway I'm not sure I much care anymore. These drums sound great, very much like my old Slingies and way better than my old...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

Good information, no these definitely would not be that model, I think it's an early Sprit model. The BD has metal hoops.

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

No, mine is a 22 inch bass but the Floor Tom does have the butterfly wings. Also the toms are deep, not like the jazz kits.

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

Yeah, I already know this part, original owner said he purchased in or about 1992. What I did not know is whether or not this was before Gibson took over. But the post I found on the other forum...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

Hmm, just found this on another forum. Most of it does not apply but this part explains a lot, my shells are maple on the inside, mahogany in the middle, and the outer layer is quite difficult to...

Re: Slingerland Drums No City Label

Thanks Bob, that's what my friend said, but that answer may be too simple, here is what confuses me. I know that the American made spirits were actually pretty good drums made with 3 ply...

Slingerland Drums No City Label

I have an odd set of Slingerland drums that appear to be from the 80's or 90's. Trying to figure what I have. The hardware is clearly traditional Slingerland hardware, complete with jumbo size...

Re: Possible buy...what is it worth? Tiger's Eye Crest kit

Yeah, you gotta re-cut the bearing edges on em when the're like that. You can breath a lot of life into them if you do that, but some of those early MIJs just had a really lousy flat edge or poorly...

Re: Aqua Premier year and thoughts

Nice kit, shipping is a ripoff though. I regularly ship kits that size for less than $100.

Re: Help identifying this snare

It's one of a couple of hundred brands made by either Pearl or Tama (Star at the time) or possibly Hoshino. They are all pretty much the same in term of collector value, which isn't much, but some...

Re: Jammin' Sam? Boooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I've tried that stuff. Had nothing but trouble with it. The problem with contact cements is that once contact is made, it's permanent. You can't move the wrap around, so if you are slightly off...

Re: Jammin' Sam? Boooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Precisely which 3m "glue" are you referring to, do you mean their NF3 contact cement (not a glue) or do you mean actual glue? I'm intersted in finding a good glue to use as opposed to contact cement...

Re: Jammin' Sam? Boooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
