Re: Why Play Vintage?

I was mostly broke, and bought older drums because I could afford them.

Re: Ringo or Pete Best ??

Pretty sure they built their version around Eddie Fountaine's original: Eddie Fontaine-Nothin' Shakin' (But The Leaves On The Trees)-1958 - YouTube

Re: Badge Cleaning

Best way is to take it off if you really want to clean it. It's pretty soft metal and easily scratched. Take it off and you can baby it back with a soaking in Dawn deterg and the usual soft...

Re: Wrap Fading 1964 Ludwig

Agree totally with Novus 1, 2. You won't get back to original, but you will get a nice and relatively shiny wrap.

Hand rub.

Re: 1961 Trixon Luxus

With the cymbal holder intact--don't see those often. Beautiful kit.

Re: John Grey Snare Throw

I went to a clock repair shop that had a lot of antique experience. They helped me out. Might be worth a try.

Re: Levon Helm Snare Drum question

Levon has so much to offer a learning drummer. Brilliant grooves, serves the song. He is a very rooted drummer. Enjoy!

Then there are the Band songs pianist Richard Manuel played on--also worth a...

Re: Vintage John Grey Bongos Edmondo Ros 1950's Rare

Very nice find.

It looks more like you will need to rummage for a workable wrench.

Re: Camco Restoration - a labor of love.

I'd plug all the holes and forget about a tom mount. That plywood has been through enough. Put the tom on a snare stand.

Re: Vintage John Grey Autocrat Snare Drum

I am a bit concerned about the downward dangle of the snare throw. Those throws have a "progressive" tension set up. I think they weren't really made to take the harder hitting that came along...

Re: These look at lot like Ringo's Premier's (I think)

I agree, most likely coincidence. I just thought with the 4" Royal Ace, it was more coincidence than not. Since tripped across a reference to the wrap on Ringo's snare running from upper left to...

The August edition of Uncut magazine had a picture of David Bowie performing at the Beckenham Free Festival (1969). It looks as though there are three kits on the stage. The one in the middle...

Re: This is the Display Your Trixon Drums Thread

Three piece (no snare) Luxus. Mid sixties square lugs. The aquamarine wrap has the usual fade, but still attractive. Kit lacks the usual cymbal holder and the bass drum muffler mechanisms, but the...

Re: 1968 Pearl Super-Deluxe?? (w/ pics)

The spurs look like ludwig spurs (gullwings). I don't know if Pearl used a similar design. Hard to tell whether the spur bracket is Pearl or Ludwig for my poor eyes.

Re: Upgrading My 60's Pyramid/Star Drum Kit

I love the wrap. It shows it's age in a good way. Faded, probably scratched, but very cool. I would keep it.

That said, rewrapping any other drums to match will be a challenge. Precision and...

Re: John Grey Champagne Sparkle

They are beautiful. My jaw dropped when I saw the Headmaster heads. I only own one Autocrat snare, which is a pain when it comes to mounting heads.(Though you can make it work with shims and a hair...
