Re: Beater Kit

You're too good for this kit. This is meant for a beginner to bang on in the basement.

Re: Age

I've read in other forums that the "vintage" drum era is generally accepted to have ended in the early 80's when US manufacturing regulations put a stranglehold on the Big 4, causing several changes...

Re: 27 Piece Ludwig Kit

The OP is obviously not a drummer, and most likely selling as part of an estate sale. I would recommend to provide good quality pictures on the general forum and ask the very knowledgeable people...

Re: Premier XPK

These are APK's. APK's have wrapped Meranti shells, whereas XPK's have Meranti shells with a lacquered birch outer layer. Not pro level, but a decent kit for the money.

Re: Performance Disaster

I was playing in a country rock band 20-odd years ago. One night we had a very light gig for an elderly singles dance in a very hot American Legion hall with no AC. Dave, our bass player sees a...

Re: In your opinion why did Bonham start playing vistalites?

Probably many people behind that decision, such as the Ludwig reps wanting to showcase their new product, as well as the company that produced Zeppelin's stage show. Vistas are visually pleasing...

Re: Nobody has brought this up yet huh? All of Gene's stuff?

Great podcast. I had the pleasure of doing some business with Brooks last year. A real gentleman and by far the most knowledgeable person of all things Slingerland that I've ever come across. I...

Re: Help ID'ing Premier Bop Kit

Looks like a late-90's Premier Cabria in Metallic Burgundy Lacquer. Nice little kit.

Re: RIP Hal Blaine

Hal got the last line of The Wrecking Crew documentary, and it gets me every time.

An optimist!

A long life, well lived, and much...

Re: Buying advice: Slingerland Radio King

Extra holes, non-original parts, wrap imperfections, and dented hoops? Personally, I'd go $300 max or walk away. You can find better drums than that.

Re: Slingerland Radio King 8x12 (40s/50s) > Ludwig 60s Keystone Gold Sparkle 8x12

Also, Slingerland shells were manufactured through 1956 with the wrap glued to the outer ply before the shell was constructed, so the wrap became integrated with the middle ply at the seam. Starting...

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

I agree that the market has evolved from reasonably priced items to sell right away, to pricing items ridiculously high and waiting it out. But as a potential buyer, you do have the option to PM the...

Re: SONOR 8 pc Phonic Series Rosewood in/out 1975 Centennial RARE & EXCELLENT!

Wow, I hadn't heard of the CITES treaty before. So not only does that make it more complicated and expensive for the seller, but it also becomes a huge consideration for the buyer. Even if the...

Re: Is Sabian Serious with this new logo?

I'd imagine their sales must be down over the last couple/several years, and a shakeup was needed. But whoa! That's ugly.

Re: Identify this drum/brand

Here's an old thread on Supreme drums. Some of the experts say Supreme Drums were made by Star. Star, of course, became Tama a few years later around the time of the Camco merger.

Re: Ludwig Standard Student Kit

The most fair way to find its true value is to put it up for auction with a starting price of 99 cents with no reserve. It will almost definitely sell for more than what you paid for it.

Re: what snare to match a premier signia kit?

Why not just look for a matching Signia maple snare? I've got a Signia kit also, same color and very similar setup as yours, and I love my 5.5 x 14. Mine did not come with the die cast top hoop, so...

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Cymbals

I have a 20" LP Rancan china cymbal that I've had since the 80's. It's big, ugly, and trashy.

Re: Keyholed Scimitars. What to do???

GC has a used 20" Scim listed for $40 in good condition, so what are they worth badly keyholed? You could use them on a practice kit, use them as a "throw-in" if you sell other gear, or just donate...

Re: Slingerland Drum research, help!

I personally don't put a lot of stock into buying certain drums because they're the same ones that (insert big name drummer) played 50 years ago. I know a lot of people do, and it does affect the...
