Greetings,

I'm looking for just the tilter sections that fit onto the solid 3/8" rod.

Can be any brand that fits (I think Camco, Gretsch Premier and some MIJ's fit too??).

Any condition, as...

Re: Old Man Rant: How hard is it to spell cymbal?

Don't forget the "16 piece drum set" that comes with two toms, bass, snare, 2 sticks, hi stand, low stand, leg thingy, felt pad, 3 books, stick bag, peddle and key.

That all adds up to 16 pieces,...

Re: Old Man Rant: How hard is it to spell cymbal?

So much THIS!

If you're going to type out "Luddy" That's five letters. Ludwig is six. Seriously. Too much effort to type one extra letter?

What's next? Grtsch and Rgers? What about Tma or...

Don't forget those very rare "Lugwig" drums that you see every now and again.

If you're lucky, those Lugwigs will come with symbols, peddle and a thrown.

Wood snare drum shell 14"

Greetings,

Anyone have a cheap wooden 14" snare drum shell lying around?

All I need is the shell itself. I can supply all the lugs, and parts for it.

Looking for just a bare wood shell or...

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

I totally agree. I tried one once. I had zero power with that pedal. No matter how hard I stomped on that dang thing, I could not achieve any volume over mp.


How about the Sabian Rocktagon?

Re: Questions about a Ludwig Black/White badge Copper Snare

Thanks for the replies!

So this is considered an LM305 Bronze. Was this part of the "Rocker" line?

I'm guessing late 90's to early/mid 2000's on the date. Does that sound about right?

I always thought that as well. And while we're on that topic, didn't it always seem like those gold Maple Custom Absolute lugs were ALWAYS on a green gloss lacquer kit? I've seen a handful that...

Re: Rogers Red Sparkle Drums

Without a doubt, yes!

Looks like maybe 13/16/22? Looks like the collett for the tom arm is missing too, but are easy replacements along with the spurs.

Also, either that's not a red sparkle,...

Here's another from Remo: SPOXE!

Basically it was the bottom part of a roto-tom. It sounded like hitting a triple flanged hoop. I remember my local music store putting cracked cymbals inside...

The Drum Frame! As far as I know, Bob Gatzen invented it. He and Will Kennedy were the only ones I ever saw using it. I don't think Will does anymore, but all of Bob's You Tube tuning videos show...

Re: WFL or Rogers

You would probably get a little bit more for the Rogers, but if it were me, I would keep the Rogers. I love BDP and I also dig 20"s more than 22"s.

Re: 1966 Slingerland "Modern Solo # 2R" Outfit

Giving these a refresh.

I would welcome feedback from anyone about my pricing. I personally think it is a fair price, but I do not claim to be a Slingerland pricing expert either.

Any thoughts...

Re: Ludwig Atlas tom mount and vintage 3 ply Sligerland shells

I think he's probably referring to the modern Atlas mount, that replaces a lug on the drum itself.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

I actually really like Yamaha's mounting system, particularly the YESS mounts. The ball and socket offers great flexibility, and the hex rod means it won't slip or rotate. I have some Yamaha's that...

Re: Cleaning "Natural" finish shells

I always follow this protocol for gloss lacquer shells:

1. Use Windex and a microfiber towel to get off surface dirt and dust.

2. Polish the shell with furniture polish and microfiber towel,...

Re: Coating MIJ drum interiors

I've done it before on a few kits, mostly just to seal them and make them stronger.

When it comes to drum's sound, 95% of it (IMHO), is tuning and head selection. Also remember how Luan is...

Good deal on a Slingerland in St. Louis Area

Greetings,

These are not mine. Looks like either:

A) They are vintage (looks like it from the interiors) and have been heavily modded

B) They are "newer issue" with classic badges (unlikely...

Re: Snare butt spacing 48 mm - Where oh where?

Is it similar to a Ludwig P-43 in style? Sometimes those butt plates can be bent slightly to accommodate the hole spacing if it's initially a little bit off. I've done that with P-43 style butts in...

Re: Yamaha Y badge D22 rewrap

Nice Job, Erik! Those lugs were really corroded!

What kind of wrap did you use? Almost looks like the self adhesive wrap you can buy in stores. It looks nice, just wondering.
