Re: Age

Well disco took off in the later 70's, then metal and rap joined to rule the 80's, so I think the last of the vintage age was in the 70's. after 80, nobody looked back.

Besides the local classic...

Re: Two estate sale finds

Chrome on top= choice of Chrome or Aluminum, lugs and hoops per catalog scan. Inlaid hoops, ten lugs, size Med ??... I think that's the BD receipt because no strainer is checked off.

Re: future of drumheads

I tune my drums by ear. I start with the snare and go from there.

Tune my ax by tool but after one minute of any riff, it's out of tool tolerances. 440 on the strat lasts as long as it takes to...

Re: Type I,II,III old K s

I don't think that cymbal is cut down, those things are never round. It looks made as you see it.

Re: Type I,II,III old K s

That cymbal is really nice to hear. It cuts.

If an order for 24" down to 20" came in the door, a 21 will be made.

Re: mystery cymbal

I played around with a old un-lathe cymbal but all I liked was the bell. I go for that fire truck bell sound.They need to be thick.

Are the bells thicker gauge than the flats ?

Re: mystery cymbal

The wash is still too much for me, comes in too fast and, the video didn't even play the bell. The bell is the focus !

It wobbles way too long.

Re: mystery cymbal

I have n't seen anything like that one. But not big on cymbals. The patina is 40 years apart, only thing that'll do that is a lathe. It could have been to the barber shop for a few grams off the top.

That's June 65 and supports the timeline I made so far for it. Seen it on 5 and 4 but not on six. The plastic knobs that Ludwig Hercules later stole, came with the Mallet logo between Mangus's badge...

First, I can't put that badge on that finish. Second I can't really tell if the badge is the impressed font. Can you feel the words if you run your finger over them ? If so because it says Western,...

Re: mystery cymbal

Uh, Tennessee, There's two of them there.

The big one looks like it just recently lost a fight with a lathe but was saved by the bell. The little one looks B-20.
