Re: The 14x14 Remains Highly Sought

I look at it as people rating a drum dictating how it's priced.

If that was true, a Phonic 22 BD would fetch 100 grand !

Re: Greatest Gretsch Drum Set For Sale

It's no longer that greatest. It's merely a 72 Challenger without the last of the street Hemi's, now try and find one, without the snare.

Death kiss !

Re: Rogers Holiday

Re: Is This Premier Snare a Royal Ace or 2000

Pick it up and throw it. If it goes 50 feet it's Aluminum, if it goes 25 feet it's Brass.

Don't go under your car and scrape some, it'll have road grains in it.

Re: Old Sonor Performer pedal: how to disassemble?

No oil. Oil will drain out rather quickly. I use brake grease. I go to Autozone or NAPPA, get a little squeeze package of Brake bolt and caliper grease. Bearing grease comes in large 15 dollar cans,...

Re: Lug maintenance/restoration

Pay attention to the t-rod splay as you assemble. I put the hoop on(no head) with the lugs snug but not tightened. I move the hoop around and adjust until all the rods are plumb straight. Then I...

Put a dowel or some piece of wood on it, tap it out easy with hammer. Someone over tightened it.

Re: HAROLD "Doc" WEST... 1951 tom mounting

I don't see a BD tom mount. Everything is rim mounted, the cymbal, the cowbell, the spurs, the crutches, why would the tom not be ?

I tried to hold my 13 like that, not...
