Re: Anyone Playing Out/Doing Any Live Work?

That would be nice to see and encouraging. I'm not even playing in these days.

Re: MIJ Sighting

At one level, I have to disagree. My first kit was a LaBoz MIJ in the mid/late 60's. I never had any serious difficulty tuning it. The rail setup wasn't great, as Kenwood has also mentioned in the...

Re: MIJ Sighting

I missed the Capitan. I was looking at the seller's title and didn't focus on the badge itself. Good catch! And on the tone control, that does look like a major patent infringement unless they paid...

MIJ Sighting

MIJ set available on Reverb/Bently's Drum Sop for $299 plus a reasonable shipping fee of $100. Rare name in my recollection. Cool little 20, 12, 14, 5-1/2x14 if you have a few spare rims/hoops/rods...

Re: Premier Aqua Sparkle Drums

I think those sets came with their version of a Swivomatic arm. Decent working piece as I recall with a rachet joint in the middle.

Re: That great Kent Sound

Reading throught this, I couldn't resist asking which had the micronite filter? It wasn't until recently that I realized micronite was asbestos. Good going on Kent's part! But they were out there...

Re: Downbeat vs clubdate

I've had both. For my ear, they are generally indistinguishable in sound but both definitely Ludwig. My experience with Club Date is not as good as with the "Downbeat" setup (double lugs). That was...

Re: Vintage MIJ Resto

Nice. Does look like a lot of work, but surely looks worth it too.

Re: Merry Christmas to the VDF

Merry Christmas to all! I'm in Northern MA today celebrating with family. It's raining ice. Will strike off for Florida in the morning and hoping for high 60's/low 70's. Just what the Dr. ordered and...

Re: New Rogers and new member

Welcome aboard! If you want to get an idea of the legacy of that drum, check out the album Dusty in Memphis with Gene Chrisman on drums. Here's one example:

Re: DW Slingerland

I'd guess they are waiting for the end of the pandemic. No sense venturing off into something like that when the entire music world might be returning to hibernation. They'll be lucky to sell DW...

Re: Ludwig Dual Strainer Snare Drum Help?

I've never seen this exact model, but snare drums with duel level snares were around in that era. Cool unit.

Re: Piccolo Question Driving Me Bonkers!

I think the answer may be simple: Immitation is the highest form of flattery. The thing I can't figure out is how they got the depth wrong.

Re: If You could Have Only One Drum Set

Glad for the clarification Jeff. I thought it was oyster blue. LoLoLoLo

One of the things about that finish is that it morphed into hues that make the final result very unique on any given kit. I...

Re: Vintage 1971 Rogers Timbale Twins Drum Set.

I cannot believe that kit has not sold. Local pickup can be tricky to exercise. Too bad it wasn't spring of 2022 when I'd be passing through on 81 from Florida to Maine. Good luck with the sale....

Re: If You could Have Only One Drum Set

If I had to retain just one set, it probably would be my 1964 Rogers Headliner in blue onyx with the 14x14 FT option and a metal Dynasonic. This is a facimile photo because the set I currently have...

Re: If You could Have Only One Drum Set

The Slingerland sets are very nice. I have to say that I have always liked the flat based stands and I had the pedel when my original MIJ unit failed. Even so, I'm partial to the bass, tom, floor tom...

Beautiful. The black chrome must be very rare. I don't believe I've seen one in person.
