Re: Lacquering Luan Shells

You'll probably get more out of recutting bearing edges.

But Neil used fiberglass resin on the inside of his red Tama kit.

Re: Removing Precision Wraps

True. Third generation making drums. Wicked attention to detail. I saw it first hand when they made me some hoops for my D20.

Re: Something is coming

Yeah it gets expensive but you can't just run down to wal mart and grab one at any price...

Re: Black Beauty Deluxe Cleaning

Alcohol to get the WD-40 out! You want it clean for fresh grease.

Re: Car wax on wrapped finishes?

Carnauba here too. One grand blitz wax. Avoid any silicone at all costs.

Get a foam pad covered in microfiber for application. 99% of the world applies WAY too much wax. Buff it off with...

Re: Black Beauty Deluxe Cleaning

Dish soap, warm water and a soft tooth brush. WD-40 is, well, crap. Good for drying your distributor cap.

Get some white lithium grease at the bike shop if you don't have any. If you need to wash...

Re: 1966 Ludwig Downbeat Piccolo brought back to life

Awesome job. Those hoops look "right" on there and I bet the rim shots are like gun shots!

I restored one of these decades ago for my drum teacher. That one was black lacquer. It came out great...

Re: Something is coming

Nice! That 18 is super rare! Nice color too!

And where did you find a NOS head?!?!?

And that SDM5 snare sounds great too!

Re: Correctly dating Yamaha 9000 RC series RF

Hey musiqman. Are you a Yamaha insider? I ask because of your signature...

Anyway, out of curiosity, is Yamaha still manufacturing in the U.K.?

Re: Landed a Black Beauty I'd been thinking about for 40 years

Interesting read and congrats on landing that puppy!

I have no ideas about the badge but I'd love to find out what's up there!

Re: Correctly dating Yamaha 9000 RC series RF

Thanks man. I tore them all down a few years ago and cleaned and waxed them.

There's a nasty snare scar on on of the toms but otherwise they are very clean. That was supposed to be my last drum...

Re: ID Rogers snare

Were these later ones steel shell? I thought all Dynasonics were brass.

Re: Correctly dating Yamaha 9000 RC series RF

OK!

I found the file with all my serial numbers.

And I can confirm my 8 has the RC suffix, not the Y, so Joao was right- the "Y" apparently designates the YESS mount.

Anyway, here are mine,...

Re: Correctly dating Yamaha 9000 RC series RF

I didn't see the YESS mount last night. I didn't open the first picture.

But I think my 8 is the same way and is not a YESS mount. But all the 8's are 8x8 so used in all "lines" and that question...

Re: Correctly dating Yamaha 9000 RC series RF

Not holiday- just out to lunch.

Ok. The 8's were the same across lines (custom, force and power) so they all have the same badge. Why the Y? I don't know why the Y. Probably for Yamaha.

I...

Re: Looking for a fun project kit $500-$1000

That's great that your wife is involved as well.

Maybe let her pick a kit. She may have more interest that way too. Maybe even let you keep it!

Re: Anyone have any of these heads ?

The hydraulic ones are on the site but you have to dig a bit to find them.

If you want all those sizes, I still think it's worth contacting them.

eBay should work but it could easily be years...

Re: B/O super sensitive project

Update: the #2 drum is done!

Sounds decent- ambassador top and bottom plus the nicer set of snappy Taiwan snares. I haven't invested quality time with it but no buzzes and everything works as it...
