Re: Sum Pics

Love the old '30s era stuff.

Wouldn't want to have to gig it, but it's fascinating to look back and see how far we've come.

In another post, you'd mentioned the Camco Deluxe / Gretsch Floating...

Re: Peavey Drums

Nice work, O-Lugs, man ! Cool 1

Re: Remo SkynTone Heads

Most women seem to detest those old slap-stick comedians - the Marx Brothers and the Stooges.

I'd say that true hell for women would be eternity in a room with nothing but Marx Brothers, Stooges,...

Re: Peavey Drums

Good question, Freis968...

I've remember a Peavey Radial Pro 1000 series set up at a local shop back in the '80s. It looked strange with those tension rings instead of typical cast lug...

Re: MY 1963 LEEDY 4th of JULY KIT

Great-lookin' set, OldSchool man !

Patriotic though I am, I'm not so thrilled with the blue bass drum hoops, but it looks damn fine indeed !

Re: Snow-shoe type cymbal pedal?

Hey there, Newdecade -

I think that was the same guy (Goodwill) who'd originally had that snowshoe pedal on eBay several months ago. He had no idea what it was, other than some sort of...

Re: Nice Ludwig Shells given a new lease on life

Very nice job, dude !

In my own very humble opinion, I'd hunt down a pair of black-painted bass drum hoops with recesses to accept strips of matching wrap -- when I see maple hoops, it just...

Re: Drilling consolette on a bass drum

Hey there, Pratt !

-- Refer to your other post of this same title - I've posted there, too. But I'll add a little here as well.

Re: Drilling consolette on a bass drum

Hey there, Pratt !

What Jaye said, man. I would only add that, unless you're going for a specific "look,' try positioning it where it's most comfortable for your own way of setting up.

Re: Picked up a new pie today....

Yeah, the Dream Bliss I series had a trashier "dragon's breath" kind of Chinese hiss to them, more so than the Bliss II series, and way more than the Bliss IIIs. The Vintage Bliss series is their...

Re: Picked up a new pie today....

The Dream Contact series is closer to the old Avedis sound than the Bliss series. The Contact splash cymbals would probably have the sound you;re looking for.

Re: Ludwig 18x20 floor tom

Hi there D-Rum

Anyone who's had a 20" tom will attest to more cons than pros with 'em. Try finding a local store with 20" tom batters, which aren't the same as a 20" bass drum batter. So, you...

Re: 18' Avedis Crash- 50's?

Looks like a '60s to me. Drumaholic would know at a glance exactly what date that stamp is.

What the weight ?

Likely it's an old ride. Yeah, nice sound I'm sure, but not for just a crash.

Re: Polishing Vintage Cymbals

Absolutely NO to a drill-mounted buffer !

Man, all the experts will tell you DO NOT buff your cymbals.

That kind of buffing will create enough heat to damage a cymbal.

Elbow grease, effort,...

Re: Is this a bad thing?

From your description, it sounds like your bass drum has a mahogany interior ply - those were the greatest-sounding bass drums, man - worth $300.00 just for that drum alone.
