Re: Anyone Playing Out/Doing Any Live Work?

Okay, okay. Not vintage drums. My only remaining vintage drums are my 80’s Yamaha and RIMS Purecussion Headset (okay, maybe not real drums).

Re: Anyone Playing Out/Doing Any Live Work?

Yes! My new jazz combo had our maiden voyage tonight, playing at a popular nearby pub. Here are my Yamaha Stage Custom Hip drums on the tiny stage before we played. The gig went well, was fun, was...

Re: Slingerland Snare Date and Drum Brand

I have no idea of the answers to your questions, but I am impressed with the sheer bizarreness of the tom holder and the house paint on the drums!

Re: Ludwig Club Date

JR, those are my favorite finish for the Premiers. They usually have a lot of that splotch look but that one has a minimum of it. Beauties.

Re: Need Bearing Edge Advice

If the bit is greater than half the shell thickness, make sure the bit is not too high. Otherwise, you will keep removing too much wood and will have to keep removing the ridge each time you go from...

Re: Need Bearing Edge Advice

I have used a 3/8” roundover bit with a bearing in a router table. I made an extra-large table surface (1/2” plywood) for more support of the drum. I kept the router bit slightly shallow and did...

Re: Needs more cowbell!

Dan,
It’s interesting that you would say that! I was recently in a 60’s tribute band and that’s exactly what I did. Plus, I sang George’s harmonies! It’s challenges like those that made it so...

I have a pair of 13” Zildjian Hi Hat cymbals that bear an unusual stamp. There is only one dot in the “Ottoman” section. I reviewed some of Zenstat’s exhaustive research and didn’t see any mention...

Re: Ludwig Concert Tom Bottom Hoop Restoration

I agree that Flitz works great. For those deep scratches and chips, you can try smoothing them with very fine emory cloth. I would start with 1000 or 1500. It will leave a slightly flatter (less...

Wow. I have never seen a drum (that I was aware of) made by turning from it’s natural state. Your friend is a turner at another level! Like O-lugs said, I hope it doesn’t change its shape much as...
