Re: Re-stain or not?

I wouldn't attempt to stain it. You'll only make it look slightly better at a distance, but up close, it won't look the same and will stand out even more. We all get a few scars here and there...

Re: Big R

I can't argue that, IN RETROSPECT, the look of the Big R stuff is pretty bad. However, the function of them, at the time, was what drummers had been asking for from their hardware -rock solid...

Re: Big R

heh....MY story is that back in 1974, I ordered a set of Rogers drums from the catalog that listed Swivomatic stuff. BUT when the kit arrived several months later (and now 1975), the kit was a Big R...

Re: Rogers 14" floor tom sale question

My personal Emersons are a mint, all-original (except the cord) 71666 and a close-to-mint 29646. The 71666 would fetch substantial money not for it's rarity, but for its original condition. I...

Re: Rogers 14" floor tom sale question

I tried to find some old Emersons in that range and couldn't. Most of them are in collections. I'll find one and post it eventually. In the meantime, please enjoy this Bailey-Lee Presentation fan...

Re: Rogers 14" floor tom sale question

A fair price to a guy who owns a vintage drum shop wouldn't be the same fair price to the guy who owns the rest of the drums that match this particular drum. To him (or her) the fair price might be a...

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

^And again, that would make sense. Maple and mahogany were VERY ubiquitous woods that were commonly used in ALL kinds of woodworking industries back then. So, it would follow that those commonly-used...

Re: [B]1936-39 LUDWIG 6.5 x 14 “BUTTERSCOTCH PEARL” (uncatalogued) SUPER-LUDWIG MODEL

All I can think of is that maybe the butterscotch wrap was somewhat transparent and so when it was wrapped around a shell that had a lighter maple outer ply, the wrap would register as a lighter...

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

^Makes sense to me. Back in those days, I'm sure that a painted interior was considered more finished and professional looking.

Re: Friend wants to build me a solid Mahogany snare drum. We need guidance....

It's a beautiful piece of wood, visually....but knots and stability are usually at odds with each other. I'd be especially concerned with the area of the knot that intercedes the area(s) where the...

Re: Friend wants to build me a solid Mahogany snare drum. We need guidance....

I remember that there were some snare drums that used Eames shells (ply) and some of those were very thick, so it might be an interesting sound. Again, personally, I would like to see a shallower...

Re: TWO RARE 1940s-50s SLINGERLAND 4x13 "BE BOP" RADIO KINGS

Cool drums as always, Mike, but maybe not as fancy as many drums in your collection...which is to imply that you have some really fancy drums in your collection! :)

-love those old clamshell lugs,...

Re: Friend wants to build me a solid Mahogany snare drum. We need guidance....

I've worked on some hobbyist-level wood projects before, but I've never built a drum so I can't give much advice....other than to be aware that the thinner you go, the more the wood will...

Re: [B]1936-39 LUDWIG 6.5 x 14 “BUTTERSCOTCH PEARL” (uncatalogued) SUPER-LUDWIG MODEL

If it was yellowed WMP, then the yellowing should be inconsistent under the lugs, etc. That would be the first thing to check.

Re: eBay moment

Re: The 14x14 Remains Highly Sought

Re: Ludwig 3 ply 18" bass drum shell or complete

You will likely never find a 12 X 18 drumset bass drum, but you might find an old marcher. Good luck.

Re: finally Dave Weckl on a real drum set! :)

Weckl is an incredible drummer on any drum set. As a younger guy, I wanted to hate him. I think it was that he raised the bar so high, I couldn't see it anymore. And now, at his age, he's in great...
