Re: Questions about this Majestic Snare????

There seems to be a period in the early 70's where Star was all over the place building this that and the other thing. A snare with faux "Sound King" lugs when their main production was the...

Re: Is this REALLY a Pearl Drum?

Yes it is a Pearl-built snare. Pearl "Sound King" knockoff lugs have the squared off base. Could be one of dozens of stencil brands using Pearl as their source company.

Re: Let's talk swivel nuts!

I would replace them with 12/24 if there were a lot of missing tension rods. I had to do that with an oddball Yamaha 80's set with fine threaded rods,all the bottoms were missing. Should have just...

I am in the process of restoring/recovering a set of MIT's marketed by Donn Carr Drum Studio in Peabody,Mass. The drums shells are typical late 70's early 80's thick luan. The hardware,however is why...

Re: Trouble With Tinnitus

I have light to moderate tinnitus. It is my understanding via many Y/T videos that it is the brain trying to make up for certain frequencies that are missing from your full-spectrum hearing. And...

Re: CitriStrip fail-learn from Dean

I used Mostenbacher's grafitti remover on a gold sparkle 60's Slingerland set painted with black enamel. Very tedious work but no wrap damage besides a little gloss flattening. It could probably be...

Pearl "EXR" Granite Sparkle 16" FT

Re: Early Pearl Export drums

This is quite interesting. I'd never seen an Export set with straight spurs or a ten-lug bass drum. Is this a European sourced set? I use a mixed-Pearl set to play out consisting of an 80's Export...

Re: Snare Drum Tuning

I think those notes would vary with the depth and composition of the shell,head type,brand, rim type etc. A "High" tuning on an 8 X 14 will be lower than a 3 X 14. How about...Don Henley's snare=low...

Re: CB700 Watch Lugs

Maybe they borrowed the lug design, but the Tama/Camco joint venture did not last. I have seen a lot of CB 700's from this period,and own some.I hope you have the tom arms...they are hard to come by....

These were a trade-in on a set of Yamaha Stage Customs I just sold. They seem to be XPK-like. Very thin shells,no rerings,older style stretch lugs and typical Premier 80's/90's hardware but with odd...
