Re: The Gretscherland

Big effing deal. I'll award you a bag of jelly beans for being of great service to the betterment of mankind. Read through the comments again. Walberg and Auge drums were referenced, and I responded...

Re: The Gretscherland

Some people in here must think that EVERY effing thread is about only themselves and their own tastes. You can be quite annoying.

Try to have a nice day with yourself.

Re: The Gretscherland

I have started threads about Walberg and Auge drums and also contributed to threads about W&A drums that were started by other enthusiasts of the brand. The drums are consistently very well...

Re: The Gretscherland

My experiences with Walberg & Auge drums are consistent. The lugs on all of the drums within a drum set have all been of the same brand. My two current W&A sets have either all Rogers lugs or all...

Re: Slingerland/Gretsch

Those "extra" holes mark a perfect spot to install a diamond plate, L-arm, and small crash or splash cymbal.

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

Look at drum sets from the 1930s and 1940s. The tom positioning off to the side(s) is a carryover from back then. It was very common for the drummer to actually move his body position to better reach...

Re: Ok, here's another "funny" Jazzette (not)

Now, I'm finding humor in this discussion. Is that allowed?

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

That riser arm can be rotated a couple of inches over to the right. I think that I can see a way to have the tom holder's ratchet come from the top of the bar rather than from the bottom of the bar...

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

My experience with various types of older tom mounts--shell mounted and hoop mounted--have taught me how to make any of them work to place the tom in a comfortable playing position. I just looked at...

Re: Ok, here's another "funny" Jazzette (not)

As a manufacturer's rep in the music industry, I was in many music stores during many years in different parts of the country. In the late 1990's and early 2000's, a lot of drum sets in music stores...

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

I respectfully call BS on your assertion that the tom would be too far over to the left on a rail mount. Where the hell do you think your snare drum stand places the tom? In the middle? You could...

Re: Slingerland/Gretsch

For the working drummer, this looks like a great drum set. If you own those drums, you can take all the time in the world to locate a Gretsch badge to slap on the bass drum. My hunch is that a cheap...

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

Nice drum set. I think that the tom mount on the bass drum needs to be completed with replacement parts or a replacement rail installed in the same place. Is there evidence of a a tom mount ever...

Re: Ok, here's another "funny" Jazzette (not)

I still laugh at the catalog cops. I know that some (probably all) U.S. drum manufacturers included small print in the catalogs to inform people of two things. 1. the specs on the pictured and listed...

Re: Found a really rare but really mangled Leedy Kit today

That bass drum spur is as generic as they get. They are readily available on eBay for very little money. Grafting replacement wood to fill the big hole, and then installing the spur receiver will be...

Re: Didn't see that coming

A good independent hardware store should have a spring that will work. You might even need to get two or three shorter springs to stack on top of each other.

Funny drum? Oh yeah. Chuckle, chortle, snicker, giggle, snort, titter, guffaw, knee-slapper.

Re: Didn't see that coming

Was it designed as a single spring pedal? Or, can you insert a second spring from another pedal or spare parts?

Re: 30s pioneer at auction

We know how some people are attracted to certain types of drums. Some people will drool all over themselves about this drum. To others of us, it's a grungy old tin drum that holds no interest.

Re: What's the "weirdest" drum you've ever seen?

I gigged my Flat Jacks with a Rock band in the mid 1960s.
