Re: Sun Protection

Hi V!

I had a local company install the window tint. While I'm sure you can find this window tint locally, it does take some experience to install properly. Have you ever seen cars where the owner...

Re: Any tips on adding a gentle curve to a badge?

+1 with this method! I recently restored a 60's Ludwig Pioneer snare drum with new Mod Orange wrap and a repro Ludwig badge. I took the badge and rolled it over a 13/16" socket, which gave it a bit...

Re: Is this normal?

Yes, it's a beautiful drum...even with the misaligned lugs! To answer your question, there is really no other reason than just pure mistake! All the shells were drilled on a jig and little attention...

Re: VINTAGE DuCo FAMILY

Hi Mike!

I love your "Sears tires on a Ferrari" drums! Four beautiful examples of Duco finishes. To find them in this condition is incredibly rare! Thanks for sharing!

Re: Is this normal?

Unfortunately, it is more common than you might think! I've got quite a few vintage snare drums exhibiting this issue! Most recently, I just did a complete detailing of a mid-60's Slingerland Deluxe...

Re: ID this snare

Here's a link to the item number in question... https://www.ebay.com/itm/324553948416?hash=item4b90ec3d00:g:mosAAOSw-8xgaQjz

Not really sure how similar this one is, though.

Re: Slingerland tom air vent MIA

Think about it... Slingerland did not have separate molds to turn out shells with and without a wrap. Wraps of the time were thinner than they are now. I just removed all the original Red Glass...

Re: I this snare

The Premier hoops are definitely not original to the drum! If the strainer is original, then it appears to be a Ludwig, WFL, Ludwig & Ludwig, etc. Maybe one of our more knowledgeable collectors out...

Re: Ludwig Black Panther

Hey Dan!

Getting the glue off is the tricky part! The picture I supplied almost looks like there's no glue! In reality, it can be a real PITA to remove it! I recall Jack Lawton being involved with...

Re: Ludwig Black Panther

Hi Wayne!

Thanks for reminding me about this. I completely forgot that a Keystone Badge Black Panther kit would most likely NOT have Citrus Mod underneath!

Re: Ludwig Black Panther

Hi Erik!

Very nice! I'm sure the big question, and one that many others might ask, is what are the possibilities that there Citrus Mod underneath the Black Panther wrap!

Re: Rogers Shell Mounted Cymbal L-arm and "Knobby" Mount

Hi V!

The Rogers L-arm is getting tough to find these days! Those I've found on eBay are going for high prices! Steve Maxwell offered a very nice repro L-arm, but I'm not sure if he has any more....

Re: Rogers Collet Thread Size?

I honestly did not know that Al had passed away. Thanks for this info.

And, yes, $59 is pricey! For that price, I'd go with the solid stainless steel repros offered by Steve Ellis. Here's a link...

Hi V!

Let us know if Al still has the machined collet noses.

As to your Yamaha issue, your are absolutely correct about the purpose of the tapered shaft on the tom arms! Here's a picture of my...

Re: Rogers Collet Thread Size?

+1 with what Slingerfan said! I'd check with Al Drew first. If he doesn't have them, your next best option is Steve Ellis. Yes, his noses are pricey, but they're well-made and will outlive your...

Hi V!

You can also check with Al Drew, who owns Al Drew Music in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. The number there is 401-769-3552. Al was offering machined noses for around $25 each, but that was some...

Re: Rogers Collet Thread Size?

amosguy is correct about the nose! You guys got me wondering about this, so I just grabbed one of my spare Swivo mounts and took some pictures.

As you can see, the threads only extend a little...

Re: Anyone Have Any Info?

It appears that shackman had the information for you! When I saw the crescent moon and star, I immediately thought of Paiste. But that's as far as I got!
