Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive versus Rogers Dynasonic

The Ludwig SS snares do stay under some degree of tension in the off position, maybe not as much as when they're on, but they don't go completely slack.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Anybody remember the Firchie "time machine" snare drum? It was a cross between a roto-tom and a trixon Telstar.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Staccato drums took the North ones to a new level. The bass drums looked like a giant pair of shorts.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

I agree. Just that the original ones were uglier than homemade sin.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Arbiter Autotune drums. (The first ones, from the late 70's) They looked like eggs with hose clamps on them.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Slingerland's GrandStands......weren't they *triple* braced or something like that? They could be used as jack stands for your car.

Re: Seller Feedback

Haaaa! No, it was like a disco dance club.....huge dance floor, but tiny stage. The club owner had a house for the band to stay in during the gig, which was usually 4-5 nights.

Re: Seller Feedback

Hi, Vater, I know this is not on topic, but I see that you're in Charles Town, WV. The band I was in ~1980 or so used to play at a club called The Golden Horseshoe. It was near a horse track, if I...

Re: Cleaning "Natural" finish shells

I have a Stage custom birch kit with natural (clear) wood finish. It's pretty recent, not the latest generation, but the one before, about 4 years old or so. I've noticed that the finish is slightly...

Re: Leedy drum (1930's)

That looks like a field snare rather than a tom, since there are snare gates on one of the hoops, and a carrying strap ring on the other.

Re: Slingerland Snare Drum

The electric socket is for a heater or light bulb to keep calfskin heads from getting soggy in damp/ cold weather.

Re: Clean bass drum beaters?

I've used Simple Green sprayed on a cloth with limited success. It takes persistence and patience, and it won't make them look like new, but it does help. Maybe a weak bleach/water solution also....

I'm all for drums, and I have nothing against any other instruments, but sometimes they're just all in the way;)

Re: Remo Classic Fit ...

The vintage Ambassador heads are actually a 2-ply, with one ply being much thinner than the other. I tried one on a 13" snare, and didn't like it.

Gene Krupa playing a Dynasonic?

Just saw a YouTube video (music with a slideshow) of Gene Krupa's "Drum Boogie" from 1959. At 7:20 or so into the video, there's a picture of him playing his kit in what looks like Yankee Stadium....
