Nice Sounding Rogers Drums

Recently watching this video caused me to notice that Pete York had a very nice sounding set of Rogers drums (English versions I would think). It appears to be configured as 20, 13, 16 and snare....

Re: What is this vintage Ludwig strainer called?

Daddy's was a strange place. One branch would have something for a lot of money and the other the same thing for almost nothing - referring to used gear. Guitar Center basically wiped them out in our...

Re: Citrus Mod: now you see it, now you don't

It would be interesting to hear a side-by-side trial of a Jazz Festival and your tribute drum. Nice looking snare.

Re: Re-wrap Seams (Use glue or tape?)

Interesting comments above. I've never used anything other than contact cement, but probably haven't kept those drums long enough to know if it holds up over the long haul.

I have had a few sets...

Re: What is this vintage Ludwig strainer called?

How popular were the 15" shells and were they issued for a specific purpose, say, orchestral work? I had a 20's era Ludwig metal snare back in the 90's and nobody seemed interested except one local...

Re: Vintage?

I have no idea why some manufacturers didn't use a boss on the lugs, but my guess would be cost. Maybe someone knows a different reason. Does anyone know if its use might have some negatives. I...

Re: Vintage?

I dunno, but I think "Vintage American Drums" are designated by the period in history in which they commadeered the market and had the best quality and innovations available. It was a period or...

Re: WFL Barrett Deems Snare

Of note is that you have a "SYNCRO-MESH" strainer. No grinding with that baby.

Re: WFL Barrett Deems Snare

Here are two clips shown in the Vintage Drum Guide under the Ludwig section and the Jazz Festival history. They locate the Barrett Deems drum in 1957. In 1955 it was the Swingster Dance Model. Would...

Re: Staining and/or sealing stripped drum shells

Re: H"House" drum kits (kits supplied by the venue)

I doubt I've ever played a house kit that was played by anyone famous, but I've had to use them and usually hated every moment of it. One kit in Copperfield's near Fenway Park (now out of business)...

Re: Late 50’s Walnut Rogers kit

I checked out that website. Interesting stuff, though I didn't manage to find the lug you have. I did see these that are rather nice. Sort of an Art Deco look and somewhat like Leedy lugs. I would...
