Re: Camco L.A. Moss Green eBay 9K!!!

I agree, vintage drums are way undervalued and this kit is not only a beauty it's extremely rare since the mid 70s focus on drum kits was at the other end of the spectrum. I would imagine the only...

Re: Camco L.A. Moss Green eBay 9K!!!

Yes I agree, stains were cataloged throughout the Camco years.

These drums will not last much longer if left as they are at this point...

If I am not mistaken, those old videos show mostly dark, K sounding type cymbals, swish and swish sizzles.

Re: Aging Cymbals...Removing Shine?

Bury the cymbals under 4 or 5" of soil that's not dead for just two to three weeks. The location has to be alive and able to grow more than parking lot weeds.

Re: What's the trick to get your hats to chick?!

The weight could very well be the problem because it sounds like you have the bottom cymbal angled and have enough gap..

Re: Looking for advice - CAMCO Floor tom

You should wait on a matching 16" floor tom, an L A era will never sound anything like your drums and then you will have wasted all that money.
