I bought a early to mid-70s Tama Imp kit with the thinner shells with the reinforcement rings. I found some 85/86 toms in the same color, but obviously they are the thicker shells with no rings and...

Re: Ludwig Bayonet Mount Question

Thanks for the info and the correction. I have called them bayonet for years but will correct that error. These are a Cortex, Octaplus kit from 1976. Based on the year, is it safe to assume they...

Re: Tama vs Pearl - Late 70s/Early 80s

Agreed on the QC and Japan owning the 80s.

Fate decided it when I found a great price on an early 80s Pearl in Walnut lacquer finish in 22, 16, 13, and 12. I am going to keep my eyes out for a...

Re: Tama vs Pearl - Late 70s/Early 80s

Its funny you posted that. I actually had a 60's Slingerland (cant remember the series), but it had a side mounted tom and ride cymbal stand attached to the kick drum. It was only a four piece when...

Tama vs Pearl - Late 70s/Early 80s

I am looking to get another kit from the era I grew up in. I currently have a Mapex Saturn kit but I am just not into the fusion sizing and prefer the larger 12/13/16/18. I know my Saturns have...

Re: Looking for that Fat/Wet Snare - Recommendations?

Funny you mention that. I researched who played that song yesterday, and your right, it was Craig Krampf I was Googleing to find out what drums he used. I found an e-book where he was discussing...

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom Hot Red

Amazing kit. What a gem, it doesn't look like it has a scratch on it. I sure hope they take great care when boxing it.

Re: Fibes score / New member

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom Hot Red

May I ask what those sold for? Yeah, I really don't want to ever play power toms again. Total pain in the rear to setup right.

Re: Looking for that Fat/Wet Snare - Recommendations?

Thanks for the replies. I guess the major consensus is that my drum is capable but I suck at tuning . I can accept that and it is much cheaper to realize that vs buying a new drum Laughing H

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom Hot Red

Wow, great looking kit. 80's kits are the best and that one is at the top of the mark. Power toms rule....and they will come back one day. Well maybe not but lets hope we all get to play our toms...

Re: Got Me Some Tama's - W00T

I wish there was a way I could hear them instead of a blind buy. The Superstars that were here local did sound good. I made the mistake of sitting on a new Mapex Saturn kit and was floored out how...

"Fog of Time" - My Vintage Experience

I was a product of the 70's and 80's (I am 43 and was born in 1970). I grew up loving that Ludwig sound. I decided last year that I would finally own the kit that I always wanted but could never...

Re: 1978 Ludwig Octa-Plus

My 76 3-ply kit had the bearing edges cut too. I went ahead and added the lower hardware. Did they offer the stainless in dual head configuration? I have only seen them as concert toms. I bet...

Re: 1978 Ludwig Octa-Plus

That was every kids wet dream back then. Man I miss those days. Even if your kit had lower hardware, the hoops came off and went behind the dresser. The duct tape came out and all the heads all...

Re: Got Me Some Tama's - W00T

I probably paid too much, but I gave $800 for the set. With tax and shipping it was close to $900. :eek: I don't want to know how much I overpaid but I need to know. Go ahead and be the bearer of...

Re: Tama Super Maple - Superstar kit (Ready to Buy -Sanity/Price Check)

I am not a collector. I am a player and go for the vintage sound and memories. However, these drums were modified so they didn't warrant the asking price. Had they been cheaper, I would have bought...
