Re: 1966 Rogers Silver Sparkle Drums

OK, thanks for that, leedybdp.....So, another dumb question: Why were Rogers drums heavy? More plies than other manufacturers, or heavier/denser wood? Thanks...then I'll stop asking about stuff...

Re: Ringo's cymbals in new Get Back documentary

The little blue things below the keystone badges are indeed the 1960s Dymo Labelmaker adhesive tapes.

Gary Astridge mentioned that they were inventory numbers, but looking at them, they have 3...

Re: 1966 Rogers Silver Sparkle Drums

Really cool set in a classic wrap, and if I wasn't downsizing my own kits (haven't got the room) I'd be interested. I think the first double-tom kit I ever saw was Dave Clark's, and I thought that...

Re: Ringo's cymbals in new Get Back documentary

Last night, on Part 2 of "Get Back," we got a good glimpse of the stamped ink marking on that cymbal in question. It is (sideways) Medium Ride.

Re: Transition badged Super Ludwig imposter?

I'm one of the few members of the Facebook Resistance - I refuse to join....so I cannot see the photos or text. However, I'd refer to Rob Cook's book. A transition badge Super Ludwig should have...

Re: Removing Dents from COB Snare Drum Shell

That's a rough one - the worst that I've ever seen. If it were mine, I'd try "thinshell's" suggestion of finding a good auto body shop. That dent is gonna need someone with experience.

Good luck...

Re: Removing Dents from COB Snare Drum Shell

A related item: I had a COB snare drum hoop that was bent from the drum being dropped. I traced the curvature of the hoop on a block of wood and used a hand-held jig saw to cut a convex shaped piece....

Re: Ringo's cymbals in new Get Back documentary

Here is another cymbal we can obsess over....Look closely at the attached pic and note the splash cymbal between his ride and the floor tom. Maybe it was used in the "flapper" sounding "Honey Pie"...

Toms and Bass drum "born together" Dec 10, 1968. Collector-grade condition. 22/12/13/16. I added a Jazzfest because the WMP color (fade/yellowing) is a perfect match. Asking $2000 plus shipping...

Hi guys,

Cleaning out a box of drum stuff in the garage today, I found the following Ludwig snare wires (see photo):

More boom on a 20" bass drum?

Hi guys,

Interesting ad on Reverb this morning. A nice looking 1967 Ludwig kit in burgundy sparkle. 12/16/20 with the bass drum "special ordered" at 18" deep. The original owner certainly had...

Re: Anyone need Ludwig SS wires? - need repair

Thanks Mark,

There WAS someone looking for SS wires on this forum not long ago, but he wanted the simpler non-individually-adjustable snare wires that Puresound was making at one time, but...

Say guys,

Cleaning out the garage today, I found Ludwig Super Sensitive wires - the early style from a 1965 drum. 10 strand: 1 wire is missing and 4 wires have broken away from the solder.

Re: Speed King bearings

Ha! Leedybdp is gonna love this one! :-)

That "knuckle scratch" on the batter head is caused by using a 1970s (or later) SK on an earlier bass drum. In ABOUT 1973 (as close as I can...

Re: Speed King bearings

Yeah, Gerard...I agree with OddBall. Your SK is definitely in need of an overhaul. I'm betting the spring channels (within the "goal posts") are completely jammed up with hardened grease...and so...

Re: This is the Display Your Rogers Drums Thread

Interesting discussion. I too have never understood (or heard?) a need for those modern tom mounting systems that are designed to improve the resonance of toms. That's just more over-engineered...

Re: Speed King bearings

Yeah Oddball, to each his own, on those SKs - love 'em or hate 'em! I'm not familiar with your SK's "click" sound. I've never heard that before. The bottom adjustment screws decrease or increase...

Re: Speed King bearings

Hey, that's OK Leedybdp! If everyone played Ludwig drums with Speedkings, it would be an extremely boring Drum World indeed. Being the Retro that I am, I do long for the good ol' days when all we...

A plug for Vincent Leef, who bought the Speed King tune-up business from that Jesse fellow (I forget his last name).

Vincent makes minor changes in the Speed King to remove the squeaks. All 4 of...

Re: Speed King bearings

And....I forgot to mention, that pedal is from the mid-70s or later. The "spacer/support tab" at the bottom front of the "goal posts" - that abut the wooden bass drum hoop is the shorter version. ...
