Re: COW Dynasonic???

COW Dynasonic???

I have a very good friend who is clearing out his inventory and has offered me this (among other things). I have never seen a Chrome on Wood Dynasonic. He says he special ordered it in the early...

Re: Repairing a Camco Aristocrat Strainer.

Steve,

Re: Drum Strippers...Love em' or hate em'

I have bought from them too. Usually in the "thrill of the hunt" in getting to complete a project. But $29.95 for a period correct wing screw I need? I'll wait for the next bus.

Re: Drum shop with the largest inventory of vintage drums.

After trying all the above, I would recommend getting with Sherman and Mr. Peabody to use the Way Back machine to about 1950 and visit Franks Drum Shop in Chicago. ;)

Dan,

I am the second owner of this players kit that was originally bought new in Anchorage, Alaska in 1965, however there are aspects of this kit which lead me to strongly believe that it was...

I finally restored the early Oaklawn (20-12-14) I bought last year and got to use it in the Orchestra for some Gershwin and other pieces.

I'm restoring a model 800 hi-hat and while replacing an incomplete clutch and discovered this:

Re: Ludwig super sensitive brass shell info needed

I agree with BEC. The shell looks like it has the folded over weld on the bearing edge lip,
The strainer is pre-1935. The snare guards are the early 60's era or reproductions. I'm not sure when...

Re: Oops! Caught by the Glitter of it All

Nice find!! Blue Glass Glitter/Sparkle is my favorite color. I also have a Citadel that was stored for decades and the only minus is one tiny spot of rash on the BD.

Re: Vintage Gretsch Pedals

I agree with Thin Shell! Camco probably made both Gretsch pedals. The underside is Identical too.
