Re: Rogers WMP Sighting

Interesting. That was probably to put a damper on the rise of the Dave Clark V. Seems very hard to find a true live performance online, yet they were said to have been quite good live.

You can...

Don't you wish they had made backing tracks illegal.

Re: Rogers 14" floor tom sale question

PS - Estimating the blue onyx drum to be from late 1970 to late 1971, but prior to the 9/72 era where the leg mounts changed and the Holiday labels were abandoned.

Re: Slingerland 14x14 Green Sparkle

Yes, different badge by the look of it - 70's maybe. Do you know if the toms would have badges? The Leedy set had badges on all the drums. The snare came from the UK separately. I saw it on line and...

Re: Slingerland 14x14 Green Sparkle

That's the one, if you sent it to the Farm from which I got it. I had a sales advert featuring Frankie Capp with the 20-lug bass - See attached. I do have the seller's remorse, but I didn't have a...

Re: Did Camco drums ever not have vent holes?

I agree with the comments above. They sure look like the Camcos I've had. Nice drums.

One thing to note is that drums built for natural finish aren't always suitable to add wrap without having to...

Re: Elvin Jones' Gretsch Floortom

Even that much is a great back story. Wouldn't we all have loved to see the room where he had all that stuff?

There was something about Elvin's open and normally smiling face that you can sense...

Re: Elvin Jones' Gretsch Floortom

Apologies for misstating the color Kona.

Here's an illustration of one of the situations in which you see an odd floor tom in use. At first it is behind the matching FT and then the matching FT...

Re: Elvin Jones' Gretsch Floortom

Correction to my memory (all too often nowadays). I thought DeCordova was late 80's. Actually early 90's. Sad to see it is a "defunct" venue:

Elvin Jones Jazz Machine
DeCordova Museum
Lincoln,...

Re: Elvin Jones' Gretsch Floortom

It would be interesting to know the back story on why he had that drum.

He was a real dynamo. At the DeCordova, he had a rather young Ravi Coltrane with him. It was a nice outdoor afternoon of...

Not a problem in any event. Easier to add than to delete. Plenty of badges on eBay. Falling Do

Not too far from what was once home turf. As said, hopefully no one was injured.

Re: Slingerland 14x14 Green Sparkle

I inquired about the satin flame set. I couldn't get a response. It may be one of those places you just have push the button and hope for the best or go there. But I didn't want the snare drum...

Re: Elvin Jones' Gretsch Floortom

I was fortunate enough to see him play live on two occasions. Once in the 60's at Lenny's on the Pike (old building before it burned). Later in the 80's outdoors at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln,...

Slingerland 14x14 Green Sparkle

If anyone has been trying to locate a Slingerland 14x14 in green sparkle, The Starving Musician has one. However, you have to buy a kit for $1299. Oddly, the other sizes are 22, 12, 13. Might be...

Re: eBay moment

Given that these items never sell, do you suppose they are doing it to see if we react here and then have a big laugh. It's like the $14,000 OBP 14x14 in the other post. Totally absurd.
