Re: Any Ideas on this Snare Drum???

That's what I'd think, going by the lugs and strainer, though there are greater experts around here who might know better!

Re: Any Ideas on this Snare Drum???

Similar lugs to Star / early Tama Kingbeat.

Typical MIJ strainer, too

Re: "Japson" MIJ drums

Nice-looking drums!
Grey ripple?

Ralf has mention of a "Jason" badge over on his Vintage Star website, but not "Japson".

Re: Apollo guys here something you never see promo signs

Never heard of the Apollo Megatone!

Re: Is Anyone Still Using This Forum?

Still here in lockdown UK!

All quiet on the vintage drum front - though I keep seeing unattainable bargains on eBay and Gumtree that are pickup only!

Re: Pearl Masters snare question

I know that Pearl produced Masters Custom Classic snare drums with solid, one-piece maple shells in the 1990s. I had one, and it was a top-end, high quality drum!

I believe they also made / make a...

Re: What drums are you not fond of? A silly thread!!!

I'm not a fan of anything with coated / painted hardware (e.g. black / white lugs etc). Ugly!

Anything with those awful, generic Pearl Export-type "coffin" lugs - they seem to crop up in their...

Re: Original 60's Paiste Giant Beat wax coating?

I used to have an early pair of 15" Giant Beat hats (very Bonham-sounding - why did I sell them....?)

I always wondered why they remained in such shiny condition, despite obvious use - perhaps...

Re: Nick Hopkins Out of Business?

As far as I know, Nick ceased trading around the end of last summer. He also ceased publication of the excellent Vintage Drums, Legendary Sounds magazine, after just six amazing issues.

Re: Premier badge grommets

I doubt you'd find original Premier grommets, unless they'd been "cannibalised" from existing old drums. If so, the only other place I know here would be Simon John's Vintage Drum Show in Coventry,...

That may have been Gerd at SW Drums (who are superb).

UK vintage traders may be your best bet?
In recent years I would've suggested Nick Hopkin, but he recently ceased trading. I used to get mine...

Re: Leedy Mardi Gras Snare

Agreed!!

That really is a fantastic looking drum, and a beautiful bit of restoration work!

Mardi Gras remains my favourite finish - I wish I'd never sold my UK Rogers MG kit - despite the fact...
