Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

I guess the King didn't want any competition with his sequined outfits?

It actually is an interesting topic to follow the finishes/colors available for drums. Just the cosmetics of drum shells,...

Re: Premier Flat Based Cymbal Stands

I have not seen any of these stands in a long time, but maybe the screw holds the rubber foot in place? It would seem to me that Premier could buy rubber feet of the correct size but maybe an owner...

Re: Does Anybody Know What This Brass Shell Rope Drum Is?

I have essentially the same drum with the fancier "worm" red, white, and blue paint on the hoops. I think this is a common British military design known as a "Guards pattern" and agree that Potter...

Re: The Magadini / Briko Power Rod Bass Drum Pedal

I am not sure if it is really an advantage over the Camco style but it plays with a light "touch" similar to those pedals to me. It has been a while since I played it so maybe it works better only...

Re: The Magadini / Briko Power Rod Bass Drum Pedal

It is a nylon "strap". Looks kind of like thick weed eater string. There is something similar on an early DW pedal. You can see it better on the photo of the DW pedal. Sorry I don't have the...

Re: The Magadini / Briko Power Rod Bass Drum Pedal

They play very well. I would compare them with a Martin Fleetfoot/Camco/Floating Action/early DW. I collect bass drum pedals and this is one of my favorite designs. They don't fit in your hardware...

Re: One word: "Plastics"

In my mis-spent youth I worked for Jimmy Corder at his Custom Clear Drum Company which made clear acrylic drums. The most know early clear drums were Zickos I believe. I know the idea had been...

Help identifying 60's (?) Yamaha bass drum pedal

Hello, I have not been able to find any information on this Yamaha bass drum pedal. It was listed on Reverb and came from Belgium. I can't imagine what the designers had in mind (just kidding...

Re: Merry Christmas to the VDF

Ho cubed (Ho to the third power) from Joe's Boom Boom Room. Too hot for Christmas in Northern Alabama, but no problem, the egg nog is perfect.

Re: Ludwig Dual Strainer Snare Drum Help?

Just a guess, but did Ludwig experiment with making a snare drum for the pipe band market? Premier is known for the internal wire snares under the batter head for the pipe bands. I don't know when...

Re: Snare Stand

I don't remember the product name or brand but I saw some of what appeared to be rubber arms designed for just such a purpose at Fork's Drum Shop. It may have been a Pearl product but I am not sure....

Re: Best Head for Brushes?

I can second either of those choices. I have some Aquarian Modern Vintage (or American Vintage, I can't remember which) and they work great for both stick and brush response. Good luck and save...

Re: Vintage Hi-Hat Stands: Gretsch vs Slingerland vs Ludwig

That is a Walberg and Auge model and was made for several of the drum companies. It is a taller version of their original low boy. The majority of the W&A gear was built like Sherman tank and will...

Re: Repairing cymbals before/after

Re: Need help dating K Istanbul cymbals

You are quite welcome. It actually sounds good and is pretty versatile for drum set or as a suspended cymbal for band/orchestra (minus the rivets). Were factory rivet holes larger in the past? I...
