Re: Here's A Nice MIJ Set Priced Right

Yes, I believe Kenny would take the title as the King of Vintage MIJ.
More importantly, I am glad that he and the seller (of the kit in question in this thread) have come to a better understanding...

Re: Lido Supreme...just a Lido with sour cream?

Flaky Supra drive me crazy. I just decided to enjoy Acros instead.
My vote would be do sell that Supra. Since it is Keystone, you will recoup most of your investment here.
As a matter of fact,...

Mystery bongos

I think I might have a bit of a stumper here.

Slotted tension rods.

Teardrop type lugs. I am not going to automatically conclude Sonor though, not identical to their teardrops I don't think...

Re: MIJ Wrap Finishes-Let's Rank 'Em-Popular To Rare

Measure the BD shell depth. Is it a 15 incher? I have a Pearl made kit similar - BD shell is 15, not 14.

Re: Keyholed Scimitars. What to do???

Yeah - round it out (repair) and/ or use a grombal.

I will add this though - I used that exact cymbal on a CD I recorded in 1994, and listening to it, you would never guess it was such a cheap...

Re: Snare Manufacturer "VIBRATION"

Sorry Dave Drums - my mailbix is full, can't get messages until I find time to clean it out.

At the time, there were three major drum manufacturers in Japan. In the analogy of the "Big 3" of the...

Yeah, that's a Chrysler all the way!
I hope you have not use steel wool on that snare. It will scratch up and indeed make it dull.

Re: Vintage Pearl Snare

Pearl did not stop making the re-rings until 67 or 68. So, I would depend more heavily on the dating of the badge, while filtering through this shell construction dating.
Indeed very rare to find a...

Re: new MIJ snares

Loving those!

When it comes to how they sound - IMHO the thicker the shell the better.

I have a Star made thick shell (Luan of course) and I can't believe how good it sounds. I am putting it...

Re: I can't resist a nice sparkling pearl MIJ kit

So what is the FT? Thin or thick? Rings or not?

I believe the tom is Hoshino.

Re: Hoshino Drum Spurs

I used to say that Hoshino is the 3rd of the big three in vintage MIJ. Perhaps AMC would be a better analogy?
I see they tried to model the Rogers lugs. I wonder if these are as solid as they look. ...

Re: New Tama Flat Base Hardware Pack-Very close to the 60's Ludwig-$100 less than DW

Has anyone reviewed these for the forums (thread)?

Never heard of ChromaCast. Affiliated with anyone else? Look like Tama or Yamaha.

Gretsch / Ming Prototype Carbon Fiber Snare Drum

This certainly is a rare drum - not vintage, but surely only a limited number of these exist.

Re: Vintage drums - need some advice

Yes, that Yammy is the best by far. Not the sound you are looking for though. I would sell the Pearl Export to raise money for the vintage woody. However, know that you will have to add much more...
