Re: UFIP ictus 75 TAMPANG gong/cymbal

If I remember correctly (becoming rarer as I age) the Ictus products were a collaboration between UFIP and a wonderful Italian percussionist named Andrea Centazzo. He tells the story in his book...

Re: Happy bday shelly

I have always wondered what Shelly thought of the "mis-print" on his name on some of the Leedy high hat stands. I personally think he would have got a kick out of it. Note to drum companies: Check...

Re: Is Anyone Still Using This Forum?

I check in on a daily basis and usually learn something. I think it will take a while before postings get back to the "old" days... This is the best forum I frequent by the way. What was that old...

Re: Rogers BOP kit

I have a friend who makes rope tension drums and he buys small diameter drum heads such as your 18" all the time with special larger size flesh hoops that work better as bass drum heads. He also...

Re: Leedy Project Begins

I have never heard of "clown barf" before, but I think it would be appropriate for some of the drums I have seen, including some new drums. Maybe one of the more honest drum companies (?) will use...

Re: Herch Percussion

I used to search eBay and Reverb several years ago when I was in the market for a drum from the Dominican Republic called a tamburo and would get results for these drums. I think they are very...

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

Re: Help identifying bass drum pedal

Wow, This group is a brain trust. Thanks so much for the help. I guess I am too quick to assign that shade of blue to Sonor and Trixon. I will have to look into the Deri brand. If it is not too...

Help identifying bass drum pedal

Hello,
This appears to me to be either an early Sonor or Trixon bass drum pedal. It came without a beater and the leather strap was broken from age and dryness. I replaced the strap and added (and...

Re: Need recommendation for a set of drum silencers

I don't think of them as mufflers, but I have been very happy using Sabian quiet tone mutes for teaching and quieter practice. They don't do anything for bass drums or cymbals. I have two 14" pads...
