Rogers Swivo Spurs-Trick to replacing the rubber tip?

Greetings,

I am restoring my first Rogers kit. Both bass drum spurs are missing the rubber tips, which I am replacing. It is a Swivo, hexagonal spur (See Photo 1-Not mine-found on the internet)....

Re: Looking for Rogers Swivo Parts

Giving this a bump. I found the spur. I still need the Swivo Tom Arm and Swivo Cymbal Arm.

These aren't exactly rare parts. I'm genuinely surprised that no one at least has the Swivo Tom Arm.

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

That mount is awful.

My 1966 Stage Band has a rail mount that is centered on the bass drum. I never understood why companies put the rails on the far left of the bass drum.

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

There is something off about the shade of blue sparkle on the Stage Band. Looks like an MIJ Blue Sparkle. The USA made blue sparkle stuff was different. I don't see any badges or a rail mount...

Re: Rogers Supreme Hi Hat Restoration

Outstanding! You made the right call by saving it!

You can always use it as a cymbal stand bottom too.

Re: Atlas = UFIP?

Ummmmmm, thanks?!?!

All I know is that it was a good used price ($60) and it has a sound that I like. It crashes well, has a nice stick and has a usable bell. It checks all the boxes and I enjoy...

Atlas = UFIP?

Greetings,

I picked up this 20" used cymbal yesterday (it actually measures 19.5")

The Atlas stamp is in the same "mountain range" shape that I see older UFIP stamps in. I know that Atlas...

Re: Just Ordered Mystery Cymbals...any Guesses?

Looks like brass to me too.

Whomever measured it may have measured it right side up across the bell, therefore getting an inaccurate measurement and adding an inch. I bet it's an 18".

Re: Pics of my restored CB700 kit w/ wrist watch lugs

I just checked out the Fabric Empire website. Pretty cool stuff. I might try that!

The one cool thing is they sell it by the yard in 54" wide rolls, so when wrapping larger drums (18" and up),...

Re: How much for this Torodor MIJ Kit?

That's a solid price for an all-original kit in outstanding condition. Even though it's a common wrap, there is no fading or other damage. These looked like they just came out of the boxes. ...

Re: Pics of my restored CB700 kit w/ wrist watch lugs

Great job, AR! Looks like a million bucks!

A couple questions for you about the vinyl fabric:

1) Is it as durable as normal wrap? Is it thicker/thinner etc?

2) Do you have a problem with...

Re: Leedy Drums 2

Johnny,

That's a great price. If I didn't already have two BDP kits and if it was a 12"/14" instead of a 13"/16" I would probably pull the trigger. Someone is going to score a good deal on these.

Re: Turkish made

I always enjoy sound clips and videos showing drums and cymbals.

I think that the reason you aren't getting a lot of response is that there is no context or background on the video. It just says...

What's up with head prices going through the roof?

I stopped into a Guitar Center (I know, I know, it's the only option I had) because I needed to pick up a 14" Coated Ambassador for a snare drum. It rang up as $22.99! For a 14"...

Smooth White Coated Head?

I saw this on a (new, not used) Pearl Piccolo Snare (the flat black steel one) at my local GC. Could it have been the stock head?

Re: Does it have to match?

I agree with vintagemore2000, the sound does matter the most.

However, if the wrap or finish is rare or just "cool", I do think a matching snare is better.

Re: Another Ludwig Standard on CL

One other thing to keep in mind about Standards:

The tom holder is not "Standard" (pun intended). It's a 5/8" down tube while the typical Ludwig stuff is 1". The 5/8" down tube Standard mounts...

Re: Drum Poll....Kits looks good, bad?????

I voted above.

While it's not really my cup of tea, I think it's cool solely because depending on the lighting, you could have 10 different drum kits in one!
