Re: Speed King query

If it says WFL on the footboard it is a WFL Speed King. :)

Re: This is the Display Your Rewrapped Vintage Drums Thread

Thank you, Mark and Dan!

Yes, I am very pleased with the result. Niklas is probably the best drum builder in Sweden, and certainly did an exceptional job with my kit. The kit sounds great, too. So...

Re: This is the Display Your Rewrapped Vintage Drums Thread

Re: Acrolites......Reverse Economics?

Ludwig snare drums have loads of mojo. Personally, I think they are generally mediocre drums with often quite poorly designed hardware (lugs, strainers), but for some reason, their mojo drives prices...

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

gwm,

What a nice looking kit! So, the rewrap didn't affect the sound negatively? What sizes are they? 22 bass and 16 floor?

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

Hi Dean,

That is a more than kind offer, thank you so much. However, I too doubt that these products are allowed in the EU and that that is the reason why they are not available here...

See my ca 1958 teardrop kit (picture in the original thread about johnnyringo's kit) for a really old version with center tom mount and script logo with that wrap.

Re: Sonor Teardrop 2

Congrats, Johnnyringo. George is correct about the dating. My kit - I posted a pic in your previous topic - is late 1950s. The lugs are different from yours, the badges and the tom mount. In fact, I...

Re: Sonor Teardrop

Thanks for corroborating the lug style, George. Cool about Henk's set travelling over the ocean. BTW, AFAIK and FWIW, Henk is not from Sweden, but from the Netherlands. I am from Sweden. :)

Beautiful drums, George, thanks for sharing. Funny looking lugs, though! A bit like the old Premiers.

Re: Sonor Teardrop

Re: Sonor Teardrop

The finish is called Kristall (in the German 1963 Sonor catalog (http://www.sonormuseum.com/1963-64/index.html)). Originally, it has been silver and black stripes. With age, it fades like this,...

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

I've e-mailed 3M in Sweden (where I live) and asked about this product. Fingers crossed now, for its availability in the EU.
