Re: Non Drum Related Update

Please, do not blame yourself. The word "if" is one of the most powerful in the English language. "If" we had all done things differently then perhaps there might have been different outcomes. Maybe...

Re: Non Drum Related Update

johnnyringo,
You are among friends here. I think we all understand your need to "get things off your chest" and keep your fellow-members informed. It must be very difficult for both you and...

Re: MIJ Kit fun

Hey, Olimpass, what a cool idea! My bass player would really appreciate what you're doing as he's quite enthralled with steampunk! I think the operative word in your post was "fun"! Sometimes we take...

Re: Tama brass/ bronze pico

Mark is so very right! I've owned a couple of Tama piccolos in the past, but this one for reasons Mark has listed, is lucky to fetch $100.00. Stay clear.

Re: Evans Hydraulic Coated Batter Heads

Hey, Wayne!
I just tried the red on my Supra and am VERY pleased with the sound! I like the snare tuned fairly high and this head seems to do the job perfectly! Looks pretty cool too!

Re: Projects during stay-at-home times

What a great idea for a thread, leedybdp! Your project looks very cool! For the last couple of weeks, I have been assembling a bit of a Star-Ludwig hybrid snare. So far, I have taken a deep 6 1/2...

Re: Solution for chrome parts

I've used a product called Evaporust with success. Rust Check Rust Wash is also good.

Re: 6-Lug Beverley snare battle.

Six luggers generally don't tune up as well as eights or tens, even twelves. Perhaps by putting some good Puresound wires on, that would help. I really like the dimensions of your snare though and...

Re: Glue recommendations for 1920's wrap.

Damn! Sorry, Wayne. It's a very good product. So many things are like that though. Just when you find something good, you discover it's not available in your own country. Very frustrating. Best of...

Re: Glue recommendations for 1920's wrap.

Hi, Wayne,
The gentleman who wraps my old drums always uses Lepage's green contact cement. I have never been disappointed and I have never seen it bleed through. Hope this helps.

Re: WFL Parade Drum Claws

Thank you very much for showing an interest, sir! Unfortunately, I don't even own a camera. Each claw is about 1 3/4 inches across. The top one is about 2 inches long. The bottom: 2 1/2 inches. It is...

Re: 16x16 floor tom to snare drum.

Hey, Olimpass!
