Re: Removing Black Spots!

That's corrosion setting in inside/under the wrap. Not much you can do for it other than re-wrap it. The chrome wrap of this era was a plastic wrap, not "real" metal like the old "chrome-o-wood" was....

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

You only brought up resale value because you are a flipper of drums, this is all you seem to know and bring to the table here year after year. Like someone else said a couple of pages back on this...

Re: Beware Of This Reverb Buyer: Mickey P.

Its the same thing with Craigslist or Facebook marketplace......people call or email and arrange to meet and never show up or call/email to let you know they aren't coming. Never understood that.

Re: Zildjian swish 20......no rivets?

If I remember this correctly, you could have your swish with or without rivets and if you opted for the rivets you could specify the number of them at the time of ordering. Same goes for the Pang...

Re: Anybody re-lathed their old K's

Re: Ludwig parts guys: what size drum would this fit???

No, not a supersensitive. Has the wrong type of attachments. Definitely a 15" marching snare with the p-87 super classic type strainer.

Re: Ludwig Jazzettes
