Re: It's a Holiday holiday...update

I know it has been said on here before, but it always makes me laugh to think of the enormous piles of reso side hardware out there somewhere in the landfills of America.

The only thing worse was...

Re: Rogers 2

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

The next step is hiding that problem.

Re: Alternate Wrap Material

Along the same lines as the Spandex, I've often thought that some sort of shrink wrap would be cool. The perfect product would come in tube form, sized to fit over the shell easily, and then shrink...

Re: It's a Holiday holiday...update

Thanks for the input Myk. I agree that the Ludwig tom is a pretty close match. I have considered finding a BDP Ludwig floor tom which should be a few hundred cheaper than a Rogers and leaving the...

It's a Holiday holiday...update

I thought I'd share some updated pics of the BDP kit I am working on. So far, no extraordinary measures have been needed. I was able to get this far without removing lugs, just carefully masking off...

Re: Rogers 2

When I was a teenager (and played guitar exclusively) there was a middle-aged dude that would hang out waaaay to much at the local music store. For a long time we all thought he worked there. His...

Re: Nurture or Nature

Great pics and stories. I am jealous of you early adopters.

I still feel true sadness and bitterness when think back on the first day of 7th grade band class. I wanted badly to play drums, but...

Re: Rogers fans rejoice! It's a Holiday holiday!

Thanks again for the comments and related stories everyone.

I finished cleaning up the Powertone and it looks pretty amazing I think. I was able to bring it back with very little effort. High...

Re: Who made Tiger Pearl MIJ drums?

Love that wrap! Classy and cool.
Because it's such a linear design, I wonder if it suffers from the same structural weakness as agate/onyx type wraps that tend to split along the design direction?

Re: Rogers fans rejoice! It's a Holiday holiday!

Thanks for chiming in guys!

After a little searching it looks like a proper restoration on this kit would necessarily be a "slow burn" project. A few of the bits are not to be found at all on...

Re: Is Anyone Still Using This Forum?

Like many, I check in frequently, but I too am guilty of lurking and not posting much these days. For me, part of it was screen/keyboard fatigue from finishing out the school year remotely. Since...

Re: Sonor Teardrop 2

Super cool kit Johnny! Best lugs ever...but should be re-nicknamed “lawn dart lugs” IMHO.

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

Thanks gantro!
The bass head is one I found quite by accident on Reverb. At the time I didn’t have a 22 kick to put it on, but I’m a physics teacher so it was calling to me. The head is black and...

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

As a teacher this pandemic has the silver lining of giving me time at home to complete some projects that have been on the side-burner.

Thanks to the nice folks at Drum Factory Direct, and...

Re: Drum collection

I second the sentiment on the Red White and Blue kit...super cool!

That was Dr. John with the intro to that one right? I’m sad he’s gone. Loved the Meters, especially the Jungle Man song...first time hearing them. What kind of kit was he playing? Loved the white...

Re: Price shaming

Good points made by all!
This reminds me of a thread I started a while back about a tangentially related topic.
My observation was that some sellers may be “chumming the water” (so to speak) with...

Re: 1967 Ludwig Super Sensitive Restoration

I just got back a re-chromed 1965 Supra. It was a longer process than expected, but the wait turned out to be well worth it. I sent it to a local shop (Abel Metals in Cleveland) that had never done a...
