The only time I couldn't see pics, was when you initially posted them on post 139. I can now see pics on 139, 144, 159, and 164.

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Hey John,

Looking good. Is this your first EMAD head? It looks like you have both foam rings stuffed in there. You only use one at a time, either one or the other.
Btw, love those faucet...

Here's an action shot of Jerry wrapping my 14x24 Blaemire bass drum.

Yes John, welcome to the club!:cool:

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Very cool John! About the only other thing I do is maybe lay a folded up towel inside at the bottom of the bass drum, but not touching the heads. Or an Evans pad. Jerry uses the Evans pad touching...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Yes, Trick on my Blaemire. I originally had a P85 on it, but have never been a big fan of that throwoff. This is my main gigging snare, and I wanted something a little more dependable. Used a...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

I love the look of both. On a 6.5" deep snare though, I've always loved the look of a "Ludwig Schoolfest". Here's a shot of a white Jenkins/Martin with a 5.5x14 sitting atop it. Also, my original...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Hey John,

That was Scott that replied about the t-handles.

Glad you like the J/M snare, it's a killer. I do agree that the bass drum and snare are the heart of a kit. Wait till you dial in the...

No spot welding. I just drilled a couple different holes on the RIMS mount and filled the empty holes with carriage bolts.

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

I figured you knew that kit was Jerry's, I must have misunderstood you. As far as my timbale, it sounds great! We took all the hardware off one of those DW piccolo toms and used a cut-off to an older...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Just so you know John, that natural green kit is Jerry's. Mine is the white kit, with a few natural snares and timbale.

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

John,
I'm sure Jerry will chime in, but I know he slightly tinted them to even out the color, then sprayed some sort of lacquer finish. I know I was kind of bummed when I got my Blaemire shells,...

I've been thinking about the excitement that was generated over this kit for sale, and it brought my thoughts full circle. This pic is of the original kit that Jerry restored, green Blaemire shells...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Hey John,
I'm sure Jerry will chime in after he strips the drum. Remember, we are experienced with unwrapping these, and Jerry is all setup for restoring such a drum. I'm sure if these are optimum...

Re: Blaemires For Sale. Not Mine But I Can Pick Up And Ship At No Extra Cost.

Hey John,
Personally I think these drums sound great with several different heads. Like Jerry said, they sound great with the EC2/EC Reso combo. The bass drums love the EMAD batters. I tried an SK...

This is VDF at it's finest. So glad you're getting this kit John, and I know you will dig the J/M Blaemire snare!

It's always exciting when these rare drums come to surface. They don't come around very often.:cool:
