Re: Lumnitone, or Lumitone.... Japanese drum heads

Re: 24" Premier Bass Drum restoration

It's right solution.
I suppose that it will be good to add in mix some wood dust and 5% diisononilphtalate (you also can use dioctylphtalate or dimethylphtalate - it's cheap, but non-ecological).

Re: Mysterious 6" red sparkle concert tom (German?)

Yes, that's right. It's maybe early Trixon or more likely Trowa -- both of them had the same shaped lugs (from Rimmel diecast workshop), near 1959 -62's.
It's one drum from pair bongos 6+8".

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

Nothing easier.
You have to take a strip of thin plywood (only 2 layer will be better), near 1x10" and gluing on it a strip of sanding paper.
It will be your best instrument.

Cheers,
George.

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

In general, I am always against edge cutting.
A much softer path is the simple correction of edges using a flexible strip of thin plywood with glued sanding paper.

George.
