Re: drums with head larger than diameter...

The Premier Soundwave Mk II's had undersized shells (1982-85, I believe). Sound awesome.

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

I've had several of my vintage MIJ kits re-edged, professionally. They squared the shells up (these shells are rarely true), and then re-cut the edges. I've had 30's and 45's, with round over,...

Re: MIJ Drums with Die-Cast Hoops

I've used my John Grey 6 lug die cast hoops on a few of my vintage MIJ snares. Sounds great. Adds more volume, and 'pop', imo.

One year later...still not sold, still $14,000. I'm sure there's no correlation.

Re: Vintage Premier 2000 Snare Drum 68/69 Great Cond

Nice, COB. My understanding is the beer barrel hoops and badge are the marks to look for.

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

That's perfectly fair for you to do. I respect that. This is the beautiful thing about being able to have individual opinions.

That being said, the seller must be a crackhead.

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

I have many vintage MIJ kits (one of my Star kits is in the gallery section), and belong to numerous vintage MIJ groups. That price is insane. Even by Reverb standards.
