Default Glossary of terms!

When I first started collecting I had no idea what COS or COB was forget about SS or WMP! So for the help of the "Newbies" and youngsters I will get the ball rolling. Please add any to the post and I will create a master list on the main web site.


COS = Chrome Over Steel
COB = Chrome Over Brass
WMP = White Marine Pearl
SS = Stainless Steel

SBP= Sky Blue Pearl, kind of a silver-blue color.

P ink-stamped inside Slingerland shells stands for wrap, whether it be pearl or sparkle, while M stands for laquer finish whether it be clear over the natural wood or color.

Glitter wrap is deeper and has more of a diamond-like shine (some having minute glass flakes [I've also known a few glassy-eyed flakes] embedded in it) than Sparkle. Although to my (maybe glassy?) eye, some colors look better in Sparkle. Corrections always welcome!! Eddie.

It gets really hot during the summer here in the SoCal desert so we're cooped up inside the house most of the day....one's mind starts to wonder. This morning mine wondered to this question; why is it called a snare Strainer instead of a snare Tensioner, and why is it a snare Throw-off and not a snare Release? Strainer and Throw-off are perfectly good terms, but Strainer sounds like something my wife uses in the kitchen and Throw-off conjures up the vision of a rather extreme motion. Tensioner and Release seem simpler and more descriptive. Any historical info out there on who first started using Strainer and Throw-off? I know, that's just the way it is...get used to it. OK, I'll keep my mind busy by surfing ebay and garage sale ads.

All I can think of on this is, Musicians have a different mind set than logical people. Artistic or flamboyant or something. Interesting topic anyway!
